We’ve been seeing plenty of companies releasing holiday-themed videos lately, including one particularly unsettling commercial from the likes of Samsung. Today it’s the Android team’s turn to show off a holiday video of their own, and rest assured, there isn’t any uncomfortable innuendo between Santa and Mrs. Claus to be found. Instead, the holiday video the Android team put out is rather touching, and may even make you shed a tear if you aren’t careful.
The video is set in Google‘s offices during the Android team’s holiday party. Everyone is having a good time, save for one lonely Bugdroid, dressed in his holiday finest and staring longingly at a tiny Christmas tree set up in the office. When one Android developer notices the Bugdroid, he surrounds the lil’ guy with a winter wonderland using various Nexus devices, bringing a smile to his green (and adorable) face.
It’s a touching video that has an even more heartwarming ending which we won’t spoil here, but it also shows off a couple of items that are currently unavailable for purchase: docks for the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. Perhaps the Android team decided to roll a teaser into this holiday video and we can expect an announcement shortly? One can only hope.
In the meantime, we suppose we’ll just have to settle with watching the video. Google has put out some pretty excellent videos in the past, and this one is no different. 2012 was a pretty great year for Android, so we’re definitely looking forward to what 2013 has in store. What did you think of the video?
