A little girl sends her Christmas letter to Satan instead of Santa in a hilarious animated holiday film created by Anomaly London.
"Dear Satan," narrated by "Star Trek" and "X-Men" actor Patrick Stewart, follows Anomaly's hilarious interpretation of the 12 Days of Christmas last year. The edgy humor continues in the new story, in which the mistaken letter makes Satan question everything about his life in hell.
Thinking that the child loves and admires him leads Satan to become a better person (although causing him to vomit bile as he can't cope with the new feelings). Outfitted in yoga pants and friendship bracelets, he delivers a lecture about love and understanding that results in his being called a "pussy," and even worse, his banishment from hell into the world above. In his new life, he lands a job at a gluten-free bakery in Shoreditch and befriends a man named Caspian--but what will he do when he discovers the whole thing was a mistake? For one, Santa gets the brunt of it, but there's a happy ending, of sorts.
The film was written, directed, animated and produced by Anomaly and 7th Flr, with animation direction by Ben White. According to Anomaly, the agency invited everyone on the team to present an idea for a Christmas film; this one apparently caused laughter from a single sentence and has even spawned "Secret Satan" at this year's holiday party.
