Its a shame that they are perpetuating a brainwashed consumer ideology when the whole idea of Christmas was about giving presents to needy poor children. This is marketing, you are watching an Ad, there was nothing spontaneous about this at all except for the poor consumers trapped there.

Freax,

I think you need to watch Christmas Carol..

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvdMjXhPGd0

Its normally the rich that have the time to consider those in need...Not always however...But what is the alternative..everyone in need?
Remember that the people working at the store have jobs..and no matter how you look at it without jobs..your on the bread line..
NB I don't think consumerism is good but it depends on the motive of those "That can"..

NB I'm not rich either and work for a living....and yes I get bitter sometimes.. however life is what it is..you can make it hell on earth or try to make it better.

Regards
M. Gregg

I'm not against consumerism I am however against its exploitation of its consumers to perpetuate a viral video which has used us as a method to advertise.

I'm not going to express my viewpoints on consumerism here, you can checkout my personal website for those.

You should have a merry christmas too. Btw I saw a christmas movie recently that was quite nice, an animated one, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1430607/

A very fun movie I thought.

What are your thoughts on the final spirit in the Christmas carol?

The film is as you know from the book.. written when times were very hard..
As you know the spirits in the film live today as strong as they were then..
They are in the hearts and minds of people..If you don't know the story..
They are represented in every culture in the world in one form or another.

Regards
M. Gregg

Default Lighten up, amigo

If as nothing else but a piece of well orchestrated "street-art/ flash mob" whatever you care to call it, this is just too cute

You know a paticular component manufacturer sent me some French solder before they shut down for christmas and sent it Fed Ex so I would get it today instead of next year.

I might have to choose a different supplier, this kind of business practice cannot be healthy or sustainable.

*Goes back to smoking his grinch pipe* *puff* *puff* Humbug I tell you! Humbug!
