Columbus, Georgia –Today, Realtree formally announced a professional staffing agreement with Santa Claus, including the terms to become the official Christmas camouflage. Santa will be wearing a variety of suits this holiday season, including Realtree Edge, Timber, and the new MAX-7 pattern. As the holiday season approaches, Santa and his staff will see requests from boys and girls around the world, and demand for Realtree camo is expected to be at an all-time high. The exclusive partnership between Realtree and Santa lends itself to making this holiday season a special one for outdoor enthusiasts.
Realtree founder and CEO Bill Jordan noted: “We’ve been trying to think of a way to officially get Santa Claus into our campsite for some time. Our group really enjoys this time of year, and seeing the little ones shine during the holiday season is hard to beat,” Jordan continued. “Santa and Realtree reached an agreement quickly, and the reality for our brand and yours is that concealment is key. We think this match makes sense, it’s going to be fun and it keeps both of us at the top of our game.”
In addition to using Realtree, Santa will have direct access to hundreds of Realtree-licensed brands sure to meet demand this holiday season. Spartan trail cameras, Crocs, ArcticShield parkas and bibs, Ridge purses, and Groove Life rings and belts are just a few of the holiday items on many wish lists this holiday season. Early design concepts are in development for a Realtree-exclusive wrap on Santa’s sleigh, plus camo-accented accessories for the reindeer. Santa is expected to be seen in a variety of Realtree’s holiday ad campaigns this year. Additionally, Santa will be at Realtree’s headquarters in Columbus, Georgia on December 9, 2022, when Realtree serves lunch to all first responders in Muscogee County.
Asked for comment, Santa said: “Look, what Bill Jordan might not realize is that I’ve been a Realtree guy since day 1. NORAD started tracking my movement in 1955, so it’s critical that keep me hidden In 1986, the game changed for me when I started wearing Realtree, and I’m excited that my official suit now bears the Realtree pattern.”
Claus continued: “The photorealistic nature of each pattern is best in class; I love your Timber2Table recipes, and having access to world-class brands in Realtree camo makes being on the ‘good list’ that much better this year for boys and girls around the world.”
Interestingly, the deal almost hit a wall after Comet and Blitzen indicated that they had seen several of Realtree’s Monster Buck DVDs and had concerns. A visit to Columbus by Santa and his eight reindeer allowed the Realtree team to reassure the group that they are “reindeer” and will not appear in any of the upcoming Monster Buck shows. This helped seal the deal.
In a world full of noise, Realtree and Santa encourage you to remember what’s important this holiday season and spend time with family and friends. Better yet, get out there and enjoy some time together wearing Realtree camo. Wearing anything else will show which list you were on this year.
