Wal-Mart: Cooler Than Any Building You Know

kanyewest walmart Wal Mart: Cooler Than Any Building You KnowNot in response to anything that happened recently, Wal-Mart announced they have a new web page showing how popular they are with New Yorkers.

They also announced they have 33,572 fans on Facebook, “surpassing the fan total of local landmarks such as the Empire State Building and Rockefeller Center.”

As ridiculous as it is to brag about having more friends than the building where King Kong fell off, or where Matt Lauer rocks out, the retailer does have something to be happy about.

They have more fans on Facebok than Wal-Mart Free NYC, which has 4,309. (Yes, I know, people who “like” a Facebook page may not really really like it, but do it to follow that page’s updates automatically. But all things being equal…)

The Wal-Mart web page also has a photo gallery, where a few celebrities at a Wal-Mart sponsored event last December can be found.

Additionally, with 11 months until the race, there is still ample time for a dynamic shift that could leave another candidate at the top.
