An Australian reindeer named Dunder – short for ‘Down Under’ – guides Santa through some trouble on Christmas Eve in Stockland’s 2019 holiday campaign.

As Santa travels to Australia, a notorious bin chicken collides with the sleigh, sending the array of gifts into the abyss. To save the day Dunder guides Santa to a Stockland centre to restock on presents.
