We all love us our Tar-jay, right? Well, it seems Target isn't so fond of us bloggers, but it does lurve using our crotches as ad fodder (tip MY hat to Laurel).
I thought this ad was odd at first glance, but it didn't raise my hackles. A little bit of investigation finds that it was part of an winter ad campaign with models interacting with the Target logo in a variety of ways...this one is supposed to be making a snow angel. Okay, whatever. Hey, she's clothed, right? But at least one consumer advocate group was concerned enough to write Target. Here was their response:
“Good Morning Amy,
Thank you for contacting Target; unfortunately we are unable to respond to your inquiry because Target does not participate with non-traditional media outlets. This practice is in place to allow us to focus on publications that reach our core guest.
Once again thank you for your interest, and have a nice day.”
Oh, no they di'in't!
The bitter taste of unrequited love. If I'm not Target's core guest, who the dilly-o is?
