Most people are familiar with the traditional nativity set, but the year is 2016, and one company Modern Nativity decided it needed a little bit of an update to keep up with the times.
A lot has changed in the last 2,000 years. For starters, I dont even think they had iPhones back then, which explains why Joseph didnt add the birth of Jesus to his Snapchat story, the site explains. If you love Amazon Prime, and have no idea what frankincense and myrrh (sp?) are, this is the Nativity set for you.
What are you left with when you take away the robes and the hay?
Let’s take a look…
Fresh off a Whole (Holy?) Foods shopping spree, we have Joseph, rocking a man bun, and Mary with her latte and yoga pants perfecting her duck face.
Why walk when you can hop on a Segway? That’s the thinking behind the Three Wise Men, all bearing gifts of Amazon Prime.
As the site says, its crazy to think that the Wisemen followed a star in the sky to find Jesus, rather than using Google Maps, but who are we to judge?
And it wouldnt be a modern day birth if at least one person wasnt putting it on Instagram, and luckily, theteenage shepherd has it covered #babyjesus #nofilter.
“We have quickly found out that this product is very polarizing,” said founder Casey Wright. “Its usually, ‘This is hilarious, I need one,’ or ‘This is sacrilegious, I hope you burn in hell,’ and almost nothing in between those two extremes.”
With that said, they’re selling about 500 a day, and for $129.99, this set could be yours, too.
It’s sure to get people talking.
