Since the borders between online and real life have become completely blurred, and Cyber Monday now carries arguably as much weight as Black Friday, Walmart is kicking up its promotions another notch and going full-on QVC mode with a live-streamed sales extravaganza.
The live stream, hosted by multiple cheery sales reps touting the retailer’s best deals of the season, has been a trip so far. Viewers are prompted incessantly to type in their feedback, while the hosts are calling to action for purchases at a rate of roughly eight times per minute (estimate).
The stream is running from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. ET, so if you’re into jacked elves and holiday specials, follow this link for the very first of what will inevitably become a Cyber Monday annual tradition. We can’t wait for the VR version.
