The Campaign Promotes its 6 Part Mockumentary 'The Christmas Chronicles' starring Jesus.

OntheBox.com, the UK TV listings portal, today launched a Christmas viral marketing campaign to promote its 6 part Christmas mockumentary 'The Christmas Chronicles', which follows Jesus desperately trying to organise his party on the 25th December. Starring a biblical and epic cast of one and set in the modern day, the script was written in-house by the OntheBox.com editorial team.

Launched via this morning's OntheBox.com newsletter and on YouTube, the campaign redirects people to MyPartyIsNigh.com where every week day in the run up to Christmas, starting from this Thursday 18th December, a new 'webisode' will be uploaded. The site also contains a blog by Jesus, photos and links to MySpace and Facebook, where visitors are able to add Jesus to their friends list. The campaign forms part of OntheBox.com ambitions for 2009, to carry more unique and original video content and is their way of saying Happy Christmas to all their members.
