A story on AdvertisingAge today reported “Walmart Crushes Holiday Video Views, but One Bona Fide Spiritual Message Gets Through Too.” A social media chart by VisibleMeasures “counts the total number of views for each campaign” and the #ASaviorIsBorn initiative of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was ranked as the 9th most viewed video with over 17 million views.
The article states, “Perhaps the least expected member of the list, in a season dominated by commercial messaging, is a campaign sponsored by the Mormon Church.”
In a world where money and acquiring “stuff” seems to reign supreme, it’s nice to be part of a church that is doing it’s part to remind the world of the meaning of Christmas. If you have not had a chance to view the Savior Is Born video, you can watch it, along with the other videos done by YouTubers as part of the initiative, here.
