Filmmaker Casey Neistat and 18 other YouTube creators partnered with Samsung to transform the long abandoned Northridge Mall in Milwaukee, Wisconsin into a magical winter wonderland for the local Boys and Girls Club. The creators spent nearly a month getting the place ready and were happily rewarded by the excitement on each kid’s face as the red curtain was pulled open. The ever-adventurous Neistat, dressed in a Santa suit (and red sunglasses) recreated his amazing human drone trick inside the mall and across a crowd of delighted kids who’d never seen such a thing before.
