Uncle Barky's Countdown to Christmas -- Episode 2

@unclebarkycom on Twitter
Local TV stations, including those in D-FW, used to spend considerable time and effort on their Christmas season promos.

They tend to be much briefer now, the equivalents of E-cards in rushed and more impersonal times. In the 2014 holiday season, though, Fox4 put together an enthusiastic, imaginative and amusing 30-second spot in which the stars of its still No. 1-rated Good Day program more or less went caroling.

Tim Ryan, Lauren Przybyl, Evan Andrews and Chip Waggoner, all of whom remain in place a year later, are very much up to the challenge of merrily acting this one out. The spot also is very well-produced and looks all aglow. So if you’re looking for a model of how these things can still be done, look no further than this little gem.
