This Hipster Nativity set can be yours for just $130

Your nativity set is in need of a 2016 revamp, and Modern Nativity would like to help. “A lot has changed in the last 2,000 years. For starters, I don’t even think they had iPhones back then, which explains why Joseph didn’t add the birth of Jesus to his Snapchat story,” the site explains. “If you love Amazon Prime, and have no idea what frankincense and myrrh (sp?) are, this is the Nativity set for you.”

Gone are the robes and hay — this nativity set has all the modern comforts we’ve come to rely on. Lets meet the players, shall we?

Yup, the three wise men are rolling up to the solar powered manger on their Segways. This is offensive! Everyone knows hipster wise men would be on fixed-gear bikes.


Joseph is rocking a man bun and a killer denim shirt. Mary is perfecting her duckface and sipping a latte like any new mom should.


The three wise men arrive on Segways, because walking is so B.C. They’re bearing gifts of Amazon Prime, because of course.


There’s a teenage shepherd Instagramming and hashtagging the birth, because it’s not a modern birth unless everyone knows about it. #blessed #babyjesus #nofilter

And of course the beef is getting gluten-free fed and local.

“We have quickly found out that this product is very polarizing,” founder Casey Wright told Mashable. “It’s usually, ‘This is hilarious, I need one,’ or ‘This is sacrilegious, I hope you burn in hell,’ and almost nothing in between those two extremes.”

“The product site was officially published six days ago and we’re currently selling roughly 500 sets a day” Wright revealed. Wow. And they’re a steal at $130.

It’s time for an update, right? It will definitely provide something to talk about when there’s a lull in the Christmas dinner conversation.
