We DISH You a Merry Christmas

December 2, 2009

Here’s a wonderful commercial from the Nice folks at DISH Network.

I’m going to see about ditching my cable service and switching to DISH 🙂

After the video is done, check out the related video from Bill O’Reilly, who calls them Patriots for their unabashed celebration of Christmas.

Please be sure to send a note of thanks and encouragement to Robin.Zimmerman@dishnetwork.com at DISH Network for providing me with the imbed code so I can share their video with my loyal readers.

Wal-Mart ‘Carol of the Bells’ TV Commercial

November 29, 2007

Finally…at long last, here it is!

My contact at Wal-Mart came through, and Where’s Christmas? is the only place you can find this on the Internet (at least at this very moment).

My contact at Wal-Mart tells me that these are all Wal-Mart employees appearing in this comercial.

I had hoped to embed the video here for you, but WordPress.com won’t allow me to post flash, .wmv, or .mov files without paying for additional storage space.  Since this blog is not monetized, I decided to provide you with just the link instead (click and and new window will open for you to view the video).

Have a Merry Christmas…shop at Wal-Mart! (disclaimer: I receive no compensation in any way from this, or anything else on my blog).

My sincere thank you to one particular Wal-Mart corporate employee and to their IT staff for so patiently and diligently working with me to get this video posted.

Wal-Mart "Carol of the Bells" Update

November 27, 2007

Be sure to see my recent update to this post: HERE

So many of my readers have shown an interest in my posts regarding Wal-Mart, especially the one on the Wal-Mart “Carol of the Bells” TV Ad.

I haven’t forgotten my promise to make the video of their terrific TV ad available to your here as soon as possible. Well, I got word from my contact at Wal-Mart’s corporate office just this morning that I may be able to embed it sometime this week.  I hope this doesn’t sound like a shameless tease – it isn’t meant to.  I only want to emphasize that they are having a hard time deciding whether to allow someone like me who single-handedly operates a little blog to have the same access they would give to our big brothers in the old media.  I’m not being critical of Wal-Mart here, I’m just admitting that they have no idea if I’m some kind of a kook or what…some of you may be wondering that as well :-).

I have been very diligent in pursuing Wal-Mart on this and they have, at least, been responsive – which is very encouraging.  In case they’re reading my blog to aid them in their decision, you may wish to leave a comment supporting the idea, which might help them decide in our favor. 

As of this moment, I do not believe this commercial can be found any where on the Internet.  If they reverse their decision and authorize me to embed it here, I will be the first source on the net for you to view it, so stay tuned (or sign-up for my RSS for immediate notification).

In the meantime, I am working on several other interesting posts and resources which I hope to have up over the next few days.
