Target Ads
« on: May 23, 2010, 10:46:40 PM »
I love the Target ads.
I love the keyboard ad and the smoke alarm ad the most.

I've decided the episodes rate a 10 based on the ads alone, the rest is insanely awesome.

They are fun ads. :) These commercials probably cost a LOT more than a "regular" commercial, so they have to make them good.

The Target ads were awesome !  I don't know when they started but I realized when I saw the keyboard one and paid attention from then on..  Have to go back and rewatch to see if there were others before that.

I heard that ABC was charging $900,000 for 30 seconds.

You need to see the Target ads. I think there were three: The boar/BBQ Sauce, The Swan Computer/Keyboard, The Smoke Monster/Smoke alarm.

Target ads were cute, but overall there were too many damned ads!

Agree--waaayyy too many ads last night. I feel the extra 30 minutes they gave up was actually all ad time! No matter---I loved the finale anyway!

I loved the Target ads -- thought they were hilarious.  If we HAD to have ads, at least these were fun and "Lost"-related.

I also liked the way they handled the (completely ridiculous) idea of the fans "last messages" that they put into the retrospective episode.  It made the whole thing a bit less painfully corny, by at least inserting them into fun flashbacks that brought back some good memories.  I liked the one that had Locke looking into the camera with a confused look on his face after he read it -- LOL!  The one with Juliet's message board reminded me of Mango Bingo!   :D

I thought the Target ads were genius and will increase my Target shopping accordingly... if that is even possible?

The Target ads were cute the first 3 times they showed each...but the Verizon ads....  It was very whorish and a waste of time.
