‘Magic’ Phone Booth Lets Children Talk With Santa
Brazilian telecom company sets up a phone line to the 'North Pole' for the holidays.
With the help of just a pay phone and a little holiday magic, the largest telecommunications company in Brazil, Oi, recently started spreading the holiday cheer.
In the capital of Rio de Janeiro, Oi set up a ‘magic’ pay phone that allows children to call and speak with Santa Claus. As the children were talking, retired actors on the other end of the line could see them on a video monitor, allowing for real-life conversations as opposed to an automated script.
