San Francisco artists George Zisiadis and Mustafa Khan have found a unique way to spread Christmas cheer. They’ve decorated a guided drone with tinsel and mistletoe and set it loose in San Francisco’s Union Square, where couples are encouraged to abide by the age-old tradition of sharing a kiss beneath the greenery.

Zisiadis told the website Bold Italic, “All my work is about playfully re-imagining the world around us. Drones have been causing all sorts of paranoia lately and I wanted to reframe them from being scary and ominous to being fun and human. It’s not about the technology, it’s about how we use it.”

Viewing this video, I’d say mission accomplished!
