Old post search: Walmart display camera footage from the nineties?

So I believe I saw a post here years ago (10?) about a very interesting time capsule: a VHS recording of customers watching themselves on a display TV in the electronics section of what I believe was a Walmart (or maybe Sam Goody?) in the 90s. I’ve tried but cannot find this post. Ring any bells?

Walmart supplier comment

Apropos of this thread, I'm trying to find a MetaFillter comment from a few years ago in which the commenter related a story about a friend or family member whose company made a product that Walmart became interested in selling. [more inside]

adding new information (inspired by WalMart shopper story)

The story of the trampled Wal-Mart shopper was a a FPP post a few days ago. It turns out it might have been contrived. As I read the latest story, I felt that somehow the record had to be set straight on mf with this new information (I am an idealist, I suppose). But, at the same time, it certainly did not seem to be worthy of a new FPP. How does MF- as a community- handle retractions or new (conflicting) information without gumming up the front page with mediocre posts? Or is it not even worth worrying about?
