When Dan Mace heard that the Checkers Sixty60’s drivers were going to be dressed as Santa, he jumped at the opportunity to celebrate these heroes. After all, they’re the ones who got our groceries to us during a time when we were too afraid to leave our homes. This sentiment is what led the award-winning South African director and Youtuber to make a video celebrating the heroes that all South Africans can enjoy this festive season.
“I hope my remake of ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town’, using drivers and Sixty60 motorbikes, puts a smile on the faces of South Africans, who need it most, at the end of another crazy year,” said Mace.
From Monday 13 December 2021, over 2,000 Checkers Sixty60 drivers will be dressed as Santa, as they deliver groceries and festive joy to customers in 60 minutes.
