WestJet's 2018 Christmas miracle video is out

Mon Dec 03, 2018 3:13 pm

I like that notion of uniting people in a surprising way.

The usual phoney orchestrated seasonal garbage that we have come to expect from Westjet. Featuring people with no apparent life problems other than not being together over the holidays! Hopefully Santa is wearing his shiny new ALPA pin this year and all his helpers are wearing their CUPE pins. PLEASE GIVE ME A BREAK.

Then don't read and watch, simple as that.

Another good Christmas "surprise" by WestJet; it is good to know there is some creativity left in the industry.

But I still think nothing beats their 2013 version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIEIvi2MuEk

I'm sure someone will appreciate your comments, Mr. Scrooge. And yes, please take a break...

The 2013 one was a lot more fun. That was great. Felt less scripted

It could never happen. Santa is one-of-a-kind; there would be nobocy to join him in the union. With his job, he doesn't need one, anyway. And the elves have the best job in the world: they play with toys all year, one work day, and go around making everybody happy. No union ever did that!

And... if these unions create attitudes like your... nobody wants any part of them. $10.00 says you are a jealous AC employee.
