It's finally happened.
Old Navy's marketing department has finally broken my spirit. I actually enjoyed the last commercial I saw. It's a shame, I know. For years I've been saying that those ad guys need to be buried alive for subjecting America to their brand of so-perky-I-could-punch-it sense of humor. And yet, here I stand (or sit, as the case may be. I'm terribly lazy) admitting my defeat.
The collection of spots I'm referring to features a charming young bunch of holiday carolers. Only, this chipper group doesn't serenade us with beautiful verses of Lo How a Rose. Instead, through song, they remind a poor chap o' the week that he's behind on his holiday shopping for the 40 good friends in his life (ha!) and my, doesn't Old Navy have just the thing?
The voices clearly don't belong to the people pictured, but I still like it. You won, Old Navy. Now if you don't mind, I'm going to glue myself back to the tv to see if I can find the Hershey Kisses commercial I've enjoyed so much in years past. You know the one, 10 kisses in a pyramid, pretending they're handbells and chiming out We Wish You a Merry Christmas. Ah the holidays... :)
