Can't find the video for it, but the Target 2013 BTS commercial with the recorders playing "Push It" makes my ears bleed every time I hear/see it. Does this commercial do the same to anyone else?

I'm not sure if I've seen that particular one, but I'm sick of all the Target back to school ads that are set to music that is supposed to sound like a slightly off key junior high school band playing familiar pop songs, but actually sounds like professional musicians trying to sound like a slightly off key junior high school band playing familiar pop songs, but not quite pulling it off.

Yeah, that's one of those commercials. If there are more than "Push It" I will probably smash my TV if I see one of another song.

There's one that uses "Another One Bites The Dust" also.

This whole ad campaign is all kinds of fail. Just like all the others from Target over the years. Thumbs Down

I agree. My youngest Granddaughter's junior high/middle school band sounds better than this.

I saw two of these commercials tonight and they were "playing" Queen songs. They're not my favorite commercials but I don't HATE them, unlike last year's back-to-school atrocity with those teachers singing about school supplies.

I remember playing the recorder in the 5th or 6th grade...haven't seen one of those blasted things since then until this Target spot started playing. :-/

I'm not sure if this is the right commercial for this topic, because I don't recognize the tune. But it's a girl playing either a recorder or a flutophone. This time there are no other instruments. I thought the other ones were cute, but this one is just annoying!

I too am curious about this song.

I'm not up much on today's music, but it sounds like Beyonce's "Put a ring on it."
