Be A Walmart Greeter This Saturday

Bob Snead will give you a Walmart vest and Tshirt if you walk with him during the Deitch Projects Art Parade this Saturday.

Beginning at 4pm on West Broadway in NYC, “I Love Wal-Mart and Wal-Mart loves Me” will consist of a very militant group of around 75 volunteer protesters dressed as Wal-Mart greeters professing their love for Wal-Mart, with chants like “I heart Wal-Mart” or “Sam’s Choice is my Choice”. It will also include several volunteers in large reproduction “Sam’s Choice” product costumes like Soda, Ketchup, Peanut Butter, and Bread.”

This takes place in a parade filled with a bunch of other people dressed and acting like freakydoodles, so it won’t have as much impact if it took place say, on Sunday, or, inside a Walmart.

    wal-mart doesn’t “love” anything, but the fat wallet in their pants.

    …the fat, nylon, velcro-closure wallet in their comfort-waist pants!

    I thought NYC didn’t like Wal-Mart.

  4. etinterrapax says:

    I suspect that NYC doesn’t, but Wal-Mart wants to prove it really does, to give it a toehold when they try to get zoning variances. “We wouldn’t be opening here if people didn’t really want us! And look, they do!”

  5. Freakydoodles? Sounds like a great band name.
