American and Delta Holiday Videos

Both American and Delta have published holiday videos recently. Frankly I think just about every airline is screwed after the amazing WestJet “Christmas Miracle” video, which went crazy viral, with nearly 30 million hits on YouTube:

You can’t help but feel a bit bad for American, because they made a similar video, except it’s unfortunately a hundred times less awesome:

For what it’s worth, it doesn’t seem like American was stealing WestJet’s idea, since they filmed the video on December 4.

Meanwhile Delta has a 90 second “#CheertCart” jingle:

WestJet really just ruined it for everyone else, didn’t they? šŸ˜‰


  1. WestJet video brought tears to my eyesā€¦ā€¦..and it most probably is real as it credits the merchants on the credits at the end and I am certain everyone would have been willing to sign a release as they left baggage claimā€¦ā€¦ā€¦..just great marketing all the way aroundā€¦ā€¦..
    ps: AA team hire WestJet marketing teamā€¦ā€¦.maybe they can help your CEO write his letters to employeesā€¦ā€¦ā€¦.

  2. I feel bad for the guy who asked for socks and underwear. He’s going to spend the rest of his life thinking, “why didn’t I just say Mercedes instead of socks”?
