Help a Brother Out

Hee hee. That title will be funnier once you read the whole post.

So my brother sells/installs/maintains pools. Not just any pools, mind you, fiberglass pools. What's the difference? Click here to find out. Anyway, by virtue of being related to one of the top bloggers about Baker, Montana in the country, Jimmy was selected to write a semi-daily blog for Signature Pools and Spas of Chicago.

Last week, however, they realized that my blog (the one you're reading now) gets about twice as many hits per day as their company blog does (the one you're going to click on right now). This led to what sounded like a brainstorming session about how to get more traffic to their website. So they posted a video:

Now, I do object to their use of 1980's era jam-music for background. So maybe turn the sound off after about 2 minutes. And I would like to know how they advertised demolishing the neighbor's houses to install this pool, when they actually left them standing. I also didn't know a Caterpillar thingie could do that. AND I wonder if they invited those neighbors over after destroying their fence, and driving the Caterpillar through their yard, narrowly avoiding crashing into the side of their house.

Wouldn't it have been easier to air-lift the pool?

Point is: bookmark and click on it every day right after you read this blog and just.... (are you ready?) help a brother out.
