Why are they even there?
The mall Santa is probably used to seeing all sorts of children and families just waiting to spread germs all over his body and take photographic evidence of their unusual encounter. It’s one of the traditions that make Christmas what it is! However, if you see a line of grungy teens dressed in black, something is definitely wrong.
First of all, we don’t know why these teens are there in the first place. They look like they’d rather be anywhere else. If their moms are forcing them to take a nice photo with St. Nick, well, mission not accomplished.
