Oh dear God, it’s back.
I should say “she” but I do mean “it.” The entire commercial series is back, featuring that crazy Target lady in red.
Here’s the commercial I saw a mere day ago. Disclaimer: This might be the version from 2010, but all that’s changed is the opening time (if that).
I had honestly blocked these commercials out of my memory. I think they’re supposed to be funny, but instead, they’re absolutely horrendous. There’s something about this woman. Something about the fact that she speaks (grunts? yelps?) like an old lady, but she has a tweenage hairstyle. The body suit makes her look like she’s supposed to be 60, but her face looks decades younger. Honestly, I just can’t identify what age she’s supposed to be. Plus, that body suit that is grotesque. When she’s lifting the baskets, it’s just disgusting.
I’m sorry if it’s offensive that I find it disturbing to look at, but since I think they dressed her like this to be comedic in the first place, I must reiterate that it’s an epic fail.
Plus, she’s obnoxious. With her facial expressions and stupid screams. Thinking this woman is the type of person that would be at Target on Black Friday makes me want to stay home until Christmas (and it’s not even like I could buy on the web, since their website sucks).
Did anyone like this commercial last year? I’m really surprised we’re seeing it again, as everyone I talked to groaned about it. Perhaps Target’s spending too much money fixing their own website than putting forth the effort for decent advertising.
Between the choice of reuse or no ads, Target, I’d go with no ads. This woman is gross.
