The Elf on the Shelf is taking to the skies.
In a festive move, the Vancouver airport has created an Elf on the Shelf-inspired photoshop challenge. On Monday, they shared a photo of Lil Wayne atop a plane, with the caption, “You’ve heard of Elf on the Shelf, now get ready for…”
Since then, multiple airports (and airport adjacent companies) have been replying to the tweet with their own heavily doctored photos, using the same simple rhyme scheme. It’s a delightful variation on the Elf on a Shelf rhyming meme that surfaced last year, and the results are a reminder that the internet is actually quite good — sometimes.
There’s Austin Powers on towers:
Cher in the air:
Snoop on a Swoop:
Nicki Minaj on a Fuselage:
James Taylor on a maintenance trailer:
Thor on a Condor:
Ye on BA — not an amazing rhyme, but we’ll accept it.
Clearly, this is the airports’ holiday gift to us all, now we just have to see if it’s enough to get us through the dreary holiday travel season.
