The one I hate the most is where there are like 12 young kids dancing around, and singing random words. Half of it doesn't even make since, like "talk to the moose" or "Go, attire, officially retired" I also hate how they chose the most perfect looking children, with all of them having perfect teeth, bright blue eyes, and no fat. Its pretty much saying, if you shop here you children will be like that.

Sorta like "Stepford Kids". On the random words thing, maybe its the effect of the crack they gave the kids to make them that happy?Confused

The one little girl clenching her fists and screaming is the one that makes my hair hurt.

"I love my comfy sweater" and "How cute are these boots?" are the two lines that drive me crazy.

I bet the audio was recorded separately with a little bit older girls, like a group of top 13- or 14-year-old cheerleaders.

Each time I hear these commercials, I want to smash my television with dead kittens.

Me too.

I hate the "how cute are these boots" line, complete with sassy finger-pointing. Yay for glorifying vapid, spoiled little Paris-Hiltons-in-training brats.

Likely was, it does look like the girls are lip syncing. But those two lines drive me nuts as well, I remember talking about this in another thread about the GAP ads, but ones with the adults in it. Every time after this specific one plays, I have that "How cute are these boots" stuck in my head for an hour.

The worst like for me is "Listen mom & dad, we're not going to wear those girly dresses any more," or some such twaddle. Shaking their heads back and forth like a sassy black woman and shaking their fingers in our faces. Brats.

It's not only lip synched but badly; they aren't singing for much of the commercial, just mugging for the camera.

 ^  ^  ^  I bet she did the same thing after seeing the commercial 30 times in a half hour like the rest of us do.

Probably not, since she's out earning $$ making commercials and not parked in front of the TV.
