Would this be the same one they were showing on Christmas in July for the upcoming holiday season?

Wow! There are a buncha Grinches over at the K-Mart Facebook page complaining about the new commercial. - People always have to find something to complain about, and that is pretty darn sad.

Here is the commercial in question.

Here is the commercial in question.
So glad I don't use Facebook at all. Post like these that i hear about have always made feel so sad for the way people use the freedom and so called voice of others. So where was this person and others last year in the summer time when Santa Claus was drinking Pepsi on the beach and dancing with a D.J. No complaints sent to Pepsi about never buying Pepsi. How is this any different? Why no post about Craft stores putting up stuff so people can get crafts done before the holidays.

So many people in this day and age think that they are more important then they should in this digital universe. Many of them feel that they should be the voice of the people. Here is some advise if you don't like something just Don't pay attention to it. Not a hard concept to follow, of course anyone could come back to me and say that I'm doing the same thing making a point of something that is not that important. Many thing I don't care about but don't get the idea to make my self look like a self indulgent Grinch and complain about it.

Look outside one's self and observe the things that really are important in the world not some commercial that is not quote on quote even a Christmas commercial. But I digress Christmas Bashing is and will always be more important to some people then true issues in the world. Lets all forget that we are on the verge of fighting another conflict in this world. the world is way to fragile to be lost in a silly commercial.


Sorry if i may have offended anyone on the board, just venting.

It almost makes me want to sign up for Facebook just to thank Kmart for having the intestinal fortitude to run the commercial, and really tick off the "haters" to see that some people enjoy the Christmas in September stuff.

Here is the commercial in question.
When I was growing up, in the early 1980's, you would see the Time Life Treasury of Christmas commercial in September. If I remember right the order was processed and shipped in 6-8 weeks, just in time for late November-early December.

If they still played the commercial I guess people's heads would explode because they actually play Christmas music and have Christmassy scenes. OMG!


Christmas Commercial Blast from the past!!!!

I have been seeing a commercial for an annual Christmas Show in Branson, Missouri. Apparently it has gained quite a bit of popularity over the years and they are recommending that folks book their tickets now before all shows sell out. It looks to be more of a religious show depicting the birth of Jesus, so no dancing snowmen holding candy-canes (lol), but definitely a Christmas commercial.
I'm only a few hours from there, so it's a popular weekend-getaway place where I live. I'm sure this is regional and not a nationwide campaign. But it is showing on the big network stations.
