“Elf” decked out in Desigual for shopping spree

Have a look at this video below at 2:09 and you’ll notice a WestJet “elf” wearing a Desigual sweater. Obviously this is an elf with good taste.

The man wearing the Desigual sweater was one of 150 WestJet employees who surprised passengers of two flights of the Canadian airline with Christmas presents at the end of their trips — the passengers told Santa before they boarded their planes what they wanted for Christmas, then the elves went on a frantic shopping spree to match gifts to passenger requests, wrapped the presents and sent them down the baggage carousel with the names of passengers on each gift, which included computer tablets and big-screen TVs. One man probably wished he would have asked for something more than socks.

Angel Vancouver is located at No. 2 Powell Street in the Gastown district of Vancouver, Canada. Our store is on the corner of Powell & Carrall Street in Maple Tree Square, which is where Vancouver began.  The photo above shows what my store looked like in 1886.

Desigual’s slogan is La Vida es Chula (Life is Cool)!

He grew up dirt poor in New Orleans, where he fired a gun in the air on New Year’s Eve when he was 11. He was arrested and was sent to a “waif’s home” for boys, where he learned to play the coronet in the band. He left the home and joined his first band at 15. He later started his own band, the Hot Five, which in the video below performs the Heebie Jeebies, where he began scat singing:
