(CNN NEWSOURCE) If the birth of Jesus Christ happened today would Mary and Joseph live-tweet it?

Maybe not, but the couple does take selfies with the newborn in a new "Hipster Nativity" set.

The Three Wise Men are also on Segways, a cow eats all-natural grass and, of course, the stable is solar-powered.

This unique take on the classic Christmas decoration was created by brothers Corey and Casey Wright.

It costs $130.

The Wright brothers say they've already made a profit on the item.

And although they admit some people believe this nativity set is blasphemous, they say a lot of their sales have gone to churches, reverends and pastors.
