    Has anyone seen the Target commercial with the 2 girls texting and the people singing over their shoulders? It is so annoying! I would give that the current title of worst commercial!

    Are they singing really obnoxiously? If that's the one, I've heard it and glanced at it to see whose annoying commercial it is. First time I've ever hated a Target commercial. Usually they have interesting and creative commercials that I enjoy. Not this one!

    I actually loved the target ones from last year with the woman in the red track suit running in heels and a parachute, warming up for BF.

    I miss their commercials with the frantic woman preparing for their two-day sale. :thumbsup2 I don't know who came up with this new campaign, but it's annoying and dumb.

    I hardly think those 2 16 year olds are the target audience they need to reach for Black Friday.... annoying and pointless commercial.

    Its beyond annoying. It's cringeworthy and that "whatever" at the end makes me want to throw something at the tv!

    Makes me happy to not have regular t.v. I do not miss seeing commercials.

    I agree. Who in their right mind would let their 16 year old out for door busters?!?

    It is beyond 5 seconds to long. I looked up once and saw it was a Target ad and a few seconds later, I realized it was still on. Beyond tacky.

    Maybe I'm just getting old (well, no maybe about it!), but I think commercials are getting dumber and dumber every year.

    I, too, find the Target commercial annoying; I much preferred the lady in the red track suit.

    I can't stand the Geico commercials with Gallagher smashing watermelons, with the Slinky going down the escalator, and the two guys playing guitar and talking about how happy Geico customers are.

    Another one that drives me crazy is for a product called Jingos, I can't remember who makes the snack chips, but when the customer comes into the convenience shop asking directions and to buy a map, the clerk starts SCREAMING the answers! I don't understand the premise of this, but I can guarantee that I'll never buy Jingos!

    I think the ad agencies that came uo with these loser commercials should get into another line of work!

    To even things out, my favorite Christmas commercial is the red- green- and silver-wrapped Hershey Kisses ringing out "We Wish You A Merry Christmas."

    HATE IT. I want the Crazy Target Lady back (there's even a page on FB, "Bring Back the Crazy Target Lady")!

    Ugh!!! I HATE that commercial!!!! Almost.....Almost as much as I hated the obnoxious lady from last year.

    We have a local furniture store that is advertising it's $199 mattress sale. The whole commercial is this guy in a monotone voice saying "199" in front of every mattress in the store. I counted and he says "199" 9 times!! That commercial alone makes me want to never shop at that store!!

    I agree -- it really is a terrible commercial. What were they thinking?

    That's annoying but I dislike Kmart's worse where they are saying the lights 500 times :confused3

    Lately I've been finding allot of the commercials annoying. The stupid boom lady with her shopping list. The idiot who is so pleasant to the cop even though he shot out her tires, shall I go on? I usually mute the tv or go out of the room until the commercials are over.

    I am not an overly religious person, but what bothers me the most about these commercials are the songs that Target has written their sales pitch to are religious Christmas carols (at least most of them -- I think I saw 3 of these obnoxious ads last night). Really?
