Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 13, 2012
Web series MIXED BLOOMS releases new satirical video encouraging consumers to shop at big box stores for their Valentine’s Day gifts. Available on the MIXED BLOOMS YouTube and BlipTV channels, the video, “Support Big Business!” pokes fun at the excesses of big business while educating viewers about the benefits of patronizing their local shops.
Everybody’s favorite villain from MIXED BLOOMS, Mega Market Mary (played by Toni Domanico), returns to tell her adoring public why it is so important to support big box stores, and ignore the mom-and-pop shops. Director Destri Martino, the daughter of a florist, created the series to illuminate the (comedic) ups-and-downs of running a small business, and this most recent video, to help promote the web comedy.
“I love small businesses and just want to remind people that their local shops adore their patronage—so don’t forget about them when doing your Valentine’s Day shopping,” explains Martino. She adds, “Plus, small businesses tend to contribute more to their local communities than the big box stores and they are usually more knowledgeable about the products they sell.”
The new MIXED BLOOMS video, “Support Big Business!” is viewable on YouTube (http://youtu.be/U8JIdTBjdCE) and BlipTV (http://bit.ly/y0LUqm). Additional information about the full series and all six episodes from season one are available at http://www.mixedblooms.com .
