“The Digital Story of the Nativity” by Excentric

“The Digital Story of the Nativity” is a video by Portugese company Excentric. Their description for the video reads, “How social media, web and mobile tell the story of the Nativity. Christmas story told through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google, Wikipedia, Google Maps, GMail, Foursquare, Amazon… Times change, the feeling remains the same.”

Remember to dial up the resolution to HD (bottom bar) to see the text clearly and click full-screen view. The default seems to be set at 240p. Some of the scenes sped past too fast so I paused and scrolled back to see what else Joseph was twittering about before the birth. They didn’t miss out on those details.


It was originally in Portugese. Watch the clip below and even if you don’t know the language, be surprised at the many phrases and terms you will be able to recognise!
