omg that commercial. It goes right through me.
oops Mike beat me to it.
Eh. I don't find it any more obnoxious than most commercials.
This is why I don't have cable~ I get to miss all the stupid commercials
Hahah me too. I save a ton of money too since I don't know what new products or movies are coming out! Sometimes I will see a commercial on HULU but usually they are the funny Geico commercials. I love the little piggy one :lol:
Honestly, it doesn't bother me.
The one set of commercials that are really getting to me are the Olympics "Thanks, mom" series. Ummm, what happened to dad??? I wouldn't mind if they had both, but all I've seen-- and the slogan-- refer only to mom.
That commercial is what, 60 seconds? I made it all of 20. Annoying, I agree.
I miss the Target one from last year with the teacher who puts 'lots of glitter' on the supply list...she also had hamsters named Lewis and Clark.:lol:
I loved the glitter teacher!
I think the "notebooks and jeans" thing is cute, too. I usually end up singing it. Haha!
OMG! This commercial came on the SECOND I hit "post quick reply"! COOL!
This has been my favorite back to school commercial for the last few years. I haven't heard it this year.
Love that one too!
Ha...I'm surprised I haven't seen the Target commercial yet! That Staples commercial must be about 10 years old, but they always do play it around now. I like the Alice Cooper commercial, too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyfqvrx9Jx0
I just said this last night to DH and DS! They didn't think it was a big deal since women are probably buying Tide (I think that's the product). And this is coming from DH who really does help out around the house, shops, cleans,etc. I thought he should dislike it.
This one doesn't bother me too much but I can't stand the music teacher one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfXweTgMWC4
Love the Staples one. Can't say Notebooks and Jeans is any more annoying than most commercials. We have Tivo so it's rare I see any commercials.
I have seen one referencing parents but it really annoys me. BOTH my parents rock and are supportive BF reminded me how much research goes into the commercials tho.
I finished summer school on Thursday. NO BACK TO SCHOOL COMMERCIALS, PLEASE!
Great comment. As a society we frequently forget to thank dads! I have a great dad. I know there are a lot of great dads out there.
I agree. Don't remember ever seeing that one before today.
I never payed close enough attention to realize what this commercial was even saying but I noticed it a bunch of times. I would say for that reason it is an ineffective commercial.
The only Target commercial I've seen for back to school is the glitter one last year, which I enjoyed. Not sure why we don't see more...

Sad to say, I would totally sing that to my students. I came up with a class version of "All Star" and I have made a version "I Love Rock 'n' Roll" for my room this year. (My theme is Rock Stars.)
He's super creepy!
It's not back to school, but the commercial that I can't stand is the Little Caesars one
I hate her pants much more than I hate the song!
Do all 80's songs need creepy music videos. Some of the music videos from the 80's used to give me nightmares and this commercial reminds me of those videos.
I like the creepy music man. Haha
Love this one too. DH was stay at home dad, and he had a smiley face on the calendar for the first day of school - our kids hated that, and the ad! He loved the ad.:lol:
Is he supposed to remind us of Neil Sadaka? (spelling?) I like this one much better than the notebooks and jeans one.
I hadn't seen the Target ads until tonite when I went to the youtube links. Maybe it depends on the market in which you live?

Maybe, I have seen science teacher, notebooks and jeans, and music teacher all during a 1 hour tv show. But there are 5 Targets that are within a 30 minute drive from me, so this is a big market for them.
I loved the notebooks and jeans commercial. Sorry. lol. But I have only seen it a couple times. If it's on repeatedly, any commercial will drive me nuts.
I don't mind the notebooks and jeans commercial. I agree with other posters, though, and can't stand the music teacher ones.
Yeah, that commercial drove me absolutely crazy the first time I saw it.

I like all the target commercials for back to school this year. I think it's creative.
I will say, however, that the notebooks and jeans teacher's pants also bother me!
