Target does an insanely good job at advertising. Every commercial has this “Hey! We’re Walmart without the ‘Walmart’!” message hidden within a creative, engaging advertisement.
This ad just knocks it out of the park. The music (song title: Toy Jackpot) is fun and foot-tapping, and the storyline speaks to all ages.
Love it. Absolutely love it.
Our Thanksgiving dinner table.
Hey-o. So there was this snow storm. If you follow me on Twitter, I apologize for the insanely uneccesary barrage of ‘omg there’s snow-n-sliding cars, y’all’ posts. God only knows what my Facebook/Twitter will look like once I have a kid.
The only thing I love more than this commercial is the fact that Hershey’s continues to run it every year, recognizing that schmucks like me remember this commercial playing over and over as a child.
As silly as it may sound, the season hasn’t begun until I’ve seen this commercial.
Ever since we started gong out on Halloween in Seattle we’ve always made an effort to “match”.
Our first three years we were TV characters, usually from whatever show had become our favorite in the months leading to Halloween.
By the way, that’s an actual lamp shade with actual working lights inside. Kudos, wifey.

These lists, while not surprising for the most part, made me laugh. Evidently the way to unify America is through cooking and home decor.
I couldn’t help but laugh even haerder when I realized that I visit 5 of the 9 Liberal sites each day, yet only 3 of the 11 Conservative sites. This, liberals, is the definition of open minded. (Never tell me I don’t make a concerted effort to understand your often confusing and self-conflicting views.)

Like the Blazers? Like Conference USA? Of course you do! Especially if you’re a Birmingham resident whose tax dollars are paying for 5,000 football tickets to UAB each year.
The city of Birmingham is investing in the city by purchasing football tickets. Every year they buy 5,000 UAB football tickets and 1,000 Miles Collage football tickets. Birmingham City Council member Johnathan Austin says itâ€™s to keep the teams coming to Legion Field.
The mayor gets around 850 season tickets, the council gets around 350 season tickets and the rest get divided among city departments.
With processors getting speedier and password-hacking software freely available on the web, the 8-letter password may soon be obsolete. Georgia Tech researchers used graphics cards to crack 8-character passwords in two hours; divining 12-character passwords, by contrast, would have taken more than 17,000 years. The researchers say any password shorter than a dozen characters could soon be vulnerable.
If you’re reading this post from home, it means you have power. Only a “bojo” would try to access the internet without power.
But do you have… Longhorn power?
No? Would you like some? If you live in Texas, now you can.
The passion of college sports fans to buy almost anything with their favorite school’s emblem attached to it will certainly be tested with a new partnership in which the University of Texas and Texas A&M will both be selling … energy.
Yes, energy. Branded energy.
Crimson Tide fans would love this idea. Too bad most of them don’t have electricity. (I kid!)
