Not-entirely commercial Christmas

Okay, my last post relied a lot on the commercialisation of Christmas. This time, I’m posting a couple videos from companies that aren’t directly selling anything,

First, here’s a video described on YouTube this way: “this video Christmas card was created entirely by Air New Zealand staff.” It’s far more work than I’d be willing to do.

Next, a classic video from 1966, a Christmas interstitial for CBS designed by R.O. Blechman, animated by Willis Pyle and music arranged by Arnie Black (according to the posting on YouTube). I always liked its simplicity.

Well, I THINK I remember it—these days sometimes I think I remember things that I don't!
