This is categorically NOT the original Christmas Yule Log Fi

"This video is a spurious imitation, and a bad one at that.
The original televised Yule Log was the WPIX Yule Log, which debuted on New York's Channel 11, WPIX-TV in 1966.
I, Lawrence F. "Chip" Arcuri, along with my former partner on the Yule Log website, Joseph Malzone, restored the audio soundtrack for the 40th anniversary broadcast of the WPIX Yule Log in 2006; the music is now uncut, unedited and has been digitally re-mastered.
The original WPIX Yule Log is shown annually on most Tribune Broadcasting affiliates across the country every year. My Yule Log website is dedicated to the memory and preservation of the original WPIX Yule Log and great classic Christmas music.
The original WPIX Yule Log has never been released on home video before; although, we are still hoping that someday it will be. Unfortunately, it is the prohibitive music licensing fees that are the obstacle.
There are a lot of imitations out there, but there is only one original and genuine Yule Log -- and it's the WPIX Yule Log.
WAY OVER PRICED

"The log is cool and all. The songs are good. But if you go for one that doesn't have the "orginal" tag you will pay about 1/4 of the price.
I would def say shop around before you purchase this one for $20. Its quite the holiday ripe-off. But as you know, everything is more expensive around Xmas"

"I was expecting it to be a more close up shot of the fire (rather than including the entire fireplace in the frame). I also was not expecting to see a fire-poker come into the picture. Other than that it is what I was expecting. It is relaxing and nice to watch."
Right on, Mr. Arcuri!

"I'm from the Bronx, and was eleven when the WPIX Yule Log made its debut, on a great kid's tv station. I feel sorry for anyone who didn't grow up in New York at that time and doesn't have the WPIX Yule Log registered in their Christmas memories. Thank you Mr. Arcuri for slamming down this impostor."
