Still More Black Friday Crap
As we're coming out the other side of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, here is yet another annoying Target Black Friday commercial, this one from last year:
I'm sure Maria Bamford is a smart cookie. But does she really want to bank her future career on continuing to be the psychotic Target Lady, hawking the message that the holidays are all about obsessively crazy shopping? It would be different if there was a modicum of tangible irony here, but given Target's larger mission, that particular undercurrent seems lost.
