Anomaly Shows the Dark (and Hilarious) Side of Christmas Generosity

A new film starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge explores the challenge of trying to fit an entire farmyard's-worth of poultry into a small North London flat.

In this modern re-telling of The 12 Days Of Christmas, we see that the gifting strategy in the original song is absolute lunacy. How do you cope with such a bizarre onslaught of Christmas generosity? And what do you do when everyone around you seems to have come down with Christmas madness? That’s what Phoebe must find out.

Check out the full film below:

Why the film was made:

The film was written, directed, animated and produced by Anomaly.

Oli Beale, Executive Creative Director at Anomaly says: "At Anomaly, if we find something interesting or funny or entertaining or bird-related, we just like to make it. And we have the people here needed to bring almost anything to life. (Within reason. We’re not going to, like, invent a new space ship or something. But production wise, we can do the full shebang.)

This is our gift of entertainment to the nation this Christmas."
