TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--What would you do if you only had minutes to redecorate your office for the holidays? For Klick, the answer was easy: Call Zach King, the YouTube sensation and Instagram/Vine star known for his digital sleight of hand, magical videos, and recent Sorry lyric video for Justin Bieber.
Zach King Brings Christmas Bling to Klick! video, released today at klick-inc.com/holiday, tells the tale of a Klick creative director who calls Zach for help after forgetting to deck the company’s halls with boughs of holly for its holiday party.
With a quick swipe on his phone, he transports Zach to Klick headquarters to redecorate the office using his trademark digital magic tricks, like:
- pulling a real string of Christmas lights from color-copied illustrations;
- instantly gift-wrapping a giant teddy bear;
- cutting real candy canes out of red, green, and white construction paper;
- breaking a giant glass Christmas ornament into a dozen smaller ornaments to trim the tree, and
- using a Nerf toy to blast a mound of fake snow into a flurry of paper snowflakes.
Cheeky nod to Vine videos
For Zach’s millions of fans and followers, there’s even a nod to his famous six-second magic Vine videos after he learns they have 20 minutes to get the office glammed up for the party. “Well, I can do it in six seconds,” Zach jokes.
The holiday video concludes with Zach and Klick Co-Founder and CEO Leerom Segal wishing viewers a happy holiday season and unwrapping what appears to be an empty office, only to reveal most of the company’s 500 employees partying it up and sharing their holiday cheer.
“Klick reminds me of my studio a little bit where everyone’s creative,” said Zach, whose videos entertain over six million fans weekly. “I love the workspace here. You walk in the environment and you’re like, ‘Wow, these people are doing something cool’…and they seem like they just love their job here.”
“We love showcasing our creativity and culture in new and exciting ways and are thrilled to have had the opportunity to make magic with Zach,” Leerom said. “We’re big fans of Zach and his unique digital style, so partnering with him for this year’s Klick holiday video made perfect sense.”
