12 Days of Bad Stock Footage | #badstock

At Plum, we comb through stock footage everyday and this year we discovered a lot of terrible gems along the way.

Mostly holiday related.

This inspired us to create our own #badstock holiday footage starring all your favorite Plum characters:

Check out the rest of our 12 days of #badstock below.
