Gangnam SantaBooth by WiseGecko is Christmas version of Gangnam DanceBooth. Instead of placing your heading on a Gangnam dance pro dressed in a classic black suit, you’ll be doing the horse dance dressed up as Santa himself! I laughed a ton when I used a picture of my four-year-old nephew in Gangnam DanceBooth, but I must admit that Gangnam SantaBooth is even more hysterical than that!
Gangnam SantaBooth doesn’t limit you to dressing up as Santa. You can also dress up as an elf, snowman and even Rudolph the Reindeer, but there is a surprising downfall. You have to pay $0.99 for each costume! I guess I wouldn’t be too surprised if you had to pay extra to be able to use the elf, snowman and reindeer costumes, but Santa, too? Yes, to dress up as Santa, you must pay $0.99! I think it’s extremely shady that the app is free to download and called Gangnam SantaBooth, but you actually have to pay to dress up as Santa! It’s outrageous, and completely deceptive. For that reason alone, I think users should know that this app is in no way free. You can dress up in the classic black suit, but that’s what you do in the original app – making no purpose for this one at all, unless you purchase a costume. I wish they would have just made this app $0.99, even if they only gave you the Santa costume. At least then, they wouldn’t look so deceptive!
With all that being said, Gangnam SantaBooth is pretty cool. It’s funny and very festive for the holidays. You can make a dancing video and add a text or voice message! If you don’t mind spending a buck for just one costume, you’ll get a few kicks out of Gangnam SantaBooth.
