Target is at it again - creating another stylishly fun spot that I just love. I saw it for the first time when the minute long version aired the Grammys last Sunday. Twitter immediately blew up with praise for the commercial. And for good reason!
The spot touts color for the new spring fashions and features a hot air balloon landing in a downtown area. Immediately, in clown car fashion, way more people start flipping out of the balloon's basket than ever could have fit in there. Each guy is outfitted in colorful suits befitting of recent productions of Guys and Dolls. The women are outfitted in the same colors, only in dresses. We follow these colorful people as they gymnastic their way through the city and homes, magically transforming everything with colorful products you can get at Target.
The only audio is a very playful version of the French song we learned as kids, "Alouette." It's perfect for the dreary days of mid-winter to think of fun and adding color. At the end they all flip back into the basket and we see the super: "Color changes everything." Even adding in the Target logo is fun, with an overhead shot of the balloon, showing the logo on top of it.
Target - Color Changes Everything
