Seriously, Target?!! I am so angry at you for making Christmas awkward and snotty and gloomy. I was going to not shop there anymore, but then Steve needed socks and underwear… But still, I hope Target read this and feels bad. As bad as their Electronics commercial makes me feel:
Ack! Sure this may be an example of a real family situation, but when is Christmas about reality anyway?! Christmas is about love and magic and joy and forgiveness and about seeking out those things in our lives. Even in commercials whose bottom lines may be just to sell us things (which I don’t always think is true). Also, the commercial is just painfully unsuccessful at being funny. Since it is Christmas, I won’t wish for the Target Marketing Dept. to be fired, but they better pull those ads soon because I get a little humbug everytime I see one. Thank goodness for the classic Hershey’s Kisses Bell Choir or I would be a broken soul this holiday.
Pure Joy! –Amber
