Zomato delivers Christmas cheer when Santa's behind schedule

Watch the film here

Zomato has rolled out a Christmas film that captures the essence of the festive spirit while highlighting the role played by its delivery personnel in bringing some much-needed festive cheer to its users.

The film conjures up a 'what if' scenario of Santa Claus arriving late on Christmas eve and envisions the consequences in a heartwarming tale that reflects the collective anticipation of festivals, in kids to adults and even animals.

The opening frame of the video showcases Father Christmas taking delight in funny reels on Instagram before posting a 'Sorry, I'll be late' message to his followers on X (formerly Twitter) which lends a modern yet hilarious touch to the entire proceedings.

Set against a Christmas jingle, the ad conveys the message that late deliveries are painful, but Zomato aims to ensure timely delivery of festive delights, bringing smiles to faces. The film culminates in a touching encounter between Santa and a food delivery person, ending with the latter walking back to his bike only to find a neatly gift-wrapped parcel awaiting him, thus effectively underscoring the joy of giving during festivals.
