It’s That Time of Year Again…To Elf Yourself

The very successful promotional campaign for OfficeMax powered by Jib Jab is once again becoming an internet phenomenon. Elf Yourself features dancing elves that can be customized by adding pictures of yourself and your friends as the faces of the elves.

OfficeMax first launched the advertising campaign in 2006 and has released a new version of Elf Yourself each year since. This year you can place 3 to 5 different faces on the elves and this year there are a few new themes including Country and Charleston. Once you have loaded the pictures into the program and a theme has been chosen you have a few options. The video can be posted on Facebook, sent through Twitter, sent by email or it can be downloaded for $4.99 and then be transferred to your iPhone or iPod. OfficeMax also allows you to purchase items such as coffee mugs, mouse pads, and more with the image of the elves on them.

Not only can you create funny videos with pictures of you and your friends but you can also use pictures of celebrities. Click the link below to see mine, which includes Conan, Andy Richter and a special guest [Editor: this is one of the funniest things ever generated on Social Times].
