Hey, these dapper dudes seem pretty fun. Who doesn’t love a good joke and a quick ride on some children’s playground equipment? Who are these festive people and where did they get those cute boots?

…And murdered millions!

WHAT? I – did – not – see – that – coming!

Jeeze, Time Life, you had me reaching for my credit card there for a second. Coming off Christmas day, where I watched “A Christmas Story” for approximately six hours in a row, I guess I’m in a 1940s kind of mood, so when I saw the happy old-timey footage and heard the lovely children’s chorus, I felt all warm and cozy inside.

Well I’ll tell you what, mister, I was not ready for the twist ending and I will NOT be buying the DVD! Although, it is free shipping…

    I know times are rough but I think it’s a bit distasteful to market that with such sensationalism. It looks like a trailer for a Michael Bay movie.

    JB – I understand the need to study and understand history, but seriously, who is buying this DVD other than white supremacists?

    Did I mishear, or did they promote this as “the world’s first live documentary”? No, I listened twice.

    I’m surprised that their “critics” didn’t also hail this as “a thrill ride” like all the Michael Bay movie spots.

    Whoa, that had me completely thrown.

    At first I thought this was some sort of ‘company meeting’ video from Microsoft or Oracle.

    Where else can so many gather and get whipped into a Pee your pants, frenzy over projected third quarter growth? Seeing those empty, mindless cadavers in a sort of stiff lock step of irrational exuberance celebrating the banal is the very definition of the living dead.

    You can imagine my relief to discover it was about Nazis instead of an SQL provider or the company that made save and delete functions adjacent on the keyboard.

    Wow. I cannot (really can) believe they are marketing the Nazis/Holocaust this way. The text reads like it was written to appeal to someone who reads at a 3rd grade level – which says something about the world we live in and your average American citizen. We need to stop dumbing everything down.

    I am glad I won’t live to see the Time/Life documentary about the collapse of the American Empire that is coming out 100 years from now. I am sure it will include that promo and footage of the Target Christmas stampede from your earlier post. “They fed…they shopped…they demanded to be constantly entertained…their lack of education and complacency caused their downfall”

    Still just stupid. Stop wasting your time.

    Dale – You are boring.

    the only time i watch “live” TV is for The SOUP, and this hellacious commercial blind-sides me every time. i am never prepared for it and have to change the channel.
    Eff you TIME LIFE, eff you E! channel and eff you, you effing Nazis.

    Mr. Kickers, that Time-Life production documenting the downfall of the U.S. will be coming out within twenty years, and I suspect it will be in Mandarin. Sarah Palin will be the emblem of our final days.

    Jeez, Listy, I come here for some entertainment and you show me this? So glad I don’t watch TV. I thought the end of civilization came with “Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire”, but this commercial has proven me wrong. I have to go thunk my head against the wall for a while until I feel better.
