If I had to choose between between Corporate Christmases, I'd choose Coke over Walmart any time.

1. Walmart is terrible, but it's worth knowing that until people began making a stink,

 

Coke was a member of the ALEC, the right-wing think tank forcing laws upon us such as the now imfamous "Standy your ground" legislation. They're no angels. Sorry. An advertisement is just an advertisement. That spirit of togetherness is within us all, waiting to come out.

4. Really its their Public Relations dept and advertising that you like.Coke reflected the public

wave of peace at the time. It's true that someone had to sign off on it but the Corporate oil commercials at the time had campaigns of feel good scenes, too. It would be great to think that corporate decisions were made on a basis of
good works and intentions, but the bottom line is calculated in capitalistic dollars.

Hey. I liked it too.If it is made to enjoy, enjoy it. Sometimes the good of business and good of the people can travel the same path for a while.I'm glad we have a season of giving and appreciation of each other.

I'd love to teach the world to sing, too.
