Erm, in a very strange attempt at cross-promotion with a sponsor, Entertainment Tonight, has a yellow M&M, heretofore known as “Yellow”, interview David Archuleta.

  1. Actually Joy To the World is the free song of the week. The First Noel is on the holiday sampler. ;)


    lol the m&m thing is cute haha

  2. This was adorable and funny and David was fantastic. I could see him doing movies or TV. Would love to see him in his own Christmas Special. It would be cool for him to sing some songs in Spanish on it. Anyway….Cute when Yellow said I voted for you. (so did I Yellow so did I)

  3. ^I’d love to hear him do a voice over someday. that would be cool!

  4. Yeah, mj, two different free Archie songs. One is the Free iTune of the Week and the other is on the Holiday Sampler.

  5. This was so adorable. I bet it didn’t cost Jive a thing for this promo since M&M is probably footing the bill for this little commercial. Very creative advertising, I must say!

  6. aaaaawwwwww this was really cute and funny… I really enjoyed the Archie- Yellow interview and David is getting good at actinf specially if you think taht when he did that interview he have to pretend to talk to somebody qhen he was talking to the air…

  7. That was really cute. Love Yellow :)

    Thanks for the heads up on the free holiday album at iTunes. I had missed it. I try to scan their weekly freebies. I’ve discovered some really great artists that way.

  8. Is cute!

    And, he did a pretty good job interacting with an empty stool. haha! Pretending there was actually an animated character sitting there.

    ET must have a deal with M&M’s. I’ve seen other celebs doing these bits with the M’s on ET.

  9. iTunes update (via RSS feed): Christmas from the Heart is currently #17 !!!

  10. I love fun stuff, so it was a no-brainer that I loved this! M&M reps should be getting David Archuleta to do commercials for them all the time!

    David has the delivery of the MAC guy and appeal to all ages. Add chocolate and BAM! Great combo!

  11. Saw this last night! He’s too cute! I also attended his concert in KC Tuesday night and I must say, this kid is phenominal! Such a fantastic performer and his voice is beyond stunning! He was a little nervous in his banter with the audience, but when he sings, he transforms into a mature and stunning performer.

  12. He’s really grown up.

    He sure has and he has refined his stage presence nicely.

    This is a fun piece, thanks for posting, MJ.

    Love that sincere Archie smile!

  13. “Hi Yellow”, Archie says. As if it’s completely normal to be talking to an M&M. I hope he never loses his innocent charm.

  14. Loved this little piece. David did well I think. I just sort of wish that the piece would’ve given viewers the slightest indication of how great David is in concert — that little clip of “Melodies of Christmas” just hardly told the story. Silent Night on Tuesday in Kansas City was STUNNING. But oh well. He got his face and news out there, right?

    Can’t wait for more of the upcoming stuff.

    And woo-woo for the #17 on iTunes!

  15. KathyH – I’m still flailing over the KC concert. I had a blast!

    BTW, that free sampler on iTunes is great. And David’s The First Noel is one of my favorites from the album. The ending gets me every time.

  16. That interview was adorable! I happened to catch it last night. His mega watt smile really does light up the screen! David Cook tweeted that his family was at Archie’s concert in KC! I love how supportive those two are of each other.

    I just finished decorating my house yesterday to David’s Christmas CD. It is just fabulous! I like it so much better than Josh Groban’s, although I really like his too. It’ s just that I am preferring David’s right now. I just found out that David’s concert is not as far away from my town as I originally thought, so I am off to hopefully buy tickets. Not sure if it is sold out or not.

  17. Good luck, Laurie.

    I knew some of the Cook family was at the concert but didn’t see them, darn it. And I am still waiting for the day when either of the Davids just goes to the other’s concert to enjoy. The tweets alone would be fantastic.

  18. David Archuleta tickets a go! Yay!

    I know both Davids have commented on how they want to catch a show. The bad news is I don’t think they have had the chance. The good news is that they are both super busy and that is the reason why! I do think they both mentioned watching each other perform from the side of the stage in the Philippines. But that doesn’t really count though! Lol!

    I am thrilled that David’s Christmas CD is selling so well. I know I had to go to 3 Walmarts, before I found it. And that was back in October. It just makes me wonder how much more he would be selling if Jive had promoted it more. He should have been on the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, or Christmas at Rockefeller this year. Oh well…..

  19. oh yes! I agree he would be perfect for an animated feature!

    Good job there Yellow and David!

  20. iTunes update (via RSS feed): Christmas from the Heart is currently #17 !!!

    Thank you, M & M!!

  25. Thanks for posting this MJ.

    David HAS grown up. It is amazing, and he does a great job talking to yellow.

  26. Awww, his bubbly personality and smile are infectious! This was a great pairing.

  27. David is actually cuter than the M&M….. And I think Yellow and his buddies are very cute. (never quite sure what to think about their cannibalism, though…)

  28. David is actually cuter than the M&M’ ¦.. And I think Yellow and his buddies are very cute. (never quite sure what to think about their cannibalism, though’ ¦)

    LOL!!! I liked the part when David and Yellow both looked at the camera at the same time. That was so convincing.
