December 24, 2007

Bad Santas, New ZealandMedia outlets across the world are broadcasting pictures of a group bad behaving Santas on a rampage through a Christchurch movie theatre.

Around 30 Santas took a 40-second dash through Hoyts Cinema.

An eye witness said there were “Santas everywhere” causing chaos, kicking over signs and a Christmas tree.

“I thought they were funny at first but it got out of hand and I started to get scared,’ says movie goer Jackson Gorman.

Once the misbehaving Santas reached cinema number five, they set off the fire alarm before leaving.

Two hundred cinema goers were evacuated.

“There was some planning involved. They all came in together, they all went through, they all knew where they were going,” says Hoyts Cinema spokesperson Derek Rive. Read the rest of the story here.
