Mallgoers stepped into an out-of-this-world experience when SM Megamall recently launched its Christmas In Space-themed centerpiece to welcome the holidays.
Beside the mall’s 60-foot Christmas tree is Astro, a giant interactive astronaut with an LED face that displays different facial expressions – like happiness and playfulness, as it welcomes everyone to a unique intergalactic experience.
Also in the centerpiece is Mega Space Odyssey, an immersive LED space tunnel that takes shoppers to a new world where they can have a glimpse of the universe, explore spaceships, discover new galaxies, and meet cosmic friends.
The launch began with the lighting of SM Megamall’s 60-foot Christmas tree adorned with a shower of lights in nebula and shooting star designs. Mandaluyong Mayor Benjamin Abalos, Sr. led the tree lighting, and was joined by his granddaughter Ms. Universe Philippines 2021 – Mandaluyong Corrine Abalos, SM Supermalls President Steven Tan, SVP for Marketing Joaquin San Agustin, and AVP for Operations Christian Mathay.
It concluded with a special presentation depicting the journey of Santa and his new friends – the intergalactic heroes called Space Guards, to protect Christmas from invaders who wanted to halt Christmas.
