Google has been hammering away with their advertisements for the Pixel and Pixel XL in more ways than one, and one of their latest stunts is not only in good taste, but in celebration of the upcoming Christmas holiday. In the month of December you tend to find more than a few ugly sweat parties and whether or not you actually attend, they do happen, and they happen all month. Google is bringing the ugly sweater to your Pixel phones this year and is handing out actual ugly sweaters for the Pixel and Pixel XL at their pop-up store in New York City.

The news about it being sweater weather came straight from Google in a tweet earlier this morning and they're keeping a live feed going of the happenings on their official Snapchat, if you're curious to see how things play out as the day goes on. In addition to alerting those that might be in the area, Google will be handing these out through the next week so you have some time to get one even if you can't make it out to the pop-up store today or this weekend. These little ugly sweaters will cost you nothing but your time, and time you shall spend as there will likely be people waiting in line along with you just to snag one of these little guys for their device.

Google reportedly uses a 3D printer and has tons of different kinds of yarn to create these ugly masterpieces, and they'll even be giving away full size ugly sweaters that match the one you get for your phone, although to score a life size sweater you'll have to be one of the first 150 people to get the sweater today, and there's no word if they'll be handing out more of those over the course of the next week. If you don't happen to be one of today's first 150 people, you can always head to the pop-up store on a different day and try your luck. While this certainly won't protect your device like a case would, it will make it more festive, and how can you argue with that.
