A clever Christmas PR stunt from WestJet

Imagine seeing your dream Christmas presents appear before your eyes as you wait to claim your bags at the luggage carousel. WestJet managed to pull off this stunt, surprising their passengers in style, on a flight from Toronto to Calgary. Watch the video and see it for yourself… I just feel sorry for the guy who asked for new socks and underwear!

If the video was viewed more than 200,000 times on YouTube, WestJet has said it would work with the Ronald McDonald House charity to send a family in need on a Christmas vacation. It is now only a few days since they uploaded the video and already it’s been viewed around 10 million times!

    Wow! Pretty awesome stuff… Not even many five-star hotels can accomplish that sort of stuff eh Paul! :)

    No, Bryan, and it’s obviously exceeded even their own expectations. There’s been a further 2 million views since I posted this yesterday…

  3. That WestJet has pulled off a wonderful stunt is evident.. but I didn’t imagine that such a wonderful moment would be rounded off with such a huge gift in the end.. there was no end to the surprises !!!!
