No Santa?



Geez. I just went to find this latest Target Christmas spot on YouTube CUZ I LIKE IT SO, and already people are complaining about how it ruins the myth of Santa for kids? Wha-wha-WHAT? People, chill. The spots are cool. Just enjoy it for the *whew!* smirk on the kid’s face and the low-key parents.

I love how it trails off with "I forged a check"...

All of Target's new ads are great. These are decidedly different from anything they've done previously; what's the agency story there?

They be W+K.

This commercial bothers me because that little girl played some sort of child serial killer on a CSI.

Thinking In Vain ... the commercial came first. Listen to her confession; nothing about murder. Yet.

Bill - W+K, got it. I was wondering about the dramatic shift in direction. This is so incredibly divorced from anything Target has ever done. Kinda dark for them. Love it.
