Upon discovering his friend has been in hibernation during Christmases past, the hare sets out to show the bear how special a present filled Christmas can be.

Users of the service will then be able to select the option to ride with the celebrity DJ and one lucky winner (plus a friend) will be selected and picked up by Afrojack and taken in the same car and given a VIP ride to, and VIP access at the dance event.
