Yes, that's "Megan" from the Progressive commercials. Don't know her real name, but she's in quite a few commercials these days.

This woman is in so many stupid commercials, it's unbelievable.

It takes a "special" kind of person to embarrass themselves on national TV in tons of stupid commercials. LOL

Seems like all little girls want to perform these days (and to hell with actually learning music), but a music teacher isn't supposed to concern himself with that.  That's the job of the drama teacher (as if little girls even need to learn drama).

Some friends of mine had two boys before having their daughter.  They said that there was a world of difference.  They noted how, even in the 1st grade, their daughter had girls she "hated".
 
And women say that if they ran the world, there would be no wars.  LOL

I think her manager is probably trying to push her as the next Megan Mullally. A somewhat stocky bosom-y woman with an odd beauty (Megan had it, this bitch doesn't) whose quirkly and weird.
 
At least Megan wasn't in every single commercial in the world, and the ones she was in didn't suck target balls.

This one is the worst of this lot of droll Pablum. Target, fire your advertising agency already and do us all a favor. I can't believe drivel like this still gets airtime especially after the Penn State Jerry Sandusky molestation incident. That teacher looks like a prime candidate for the "Registry!"
I approve this message.

Literally all of these Target ads are about making 35-45 year old schmucks feel cool in their kids eyes. Why does literally EVERY back to school ad focus more on "you're going to be the cool mom if you get your kids this sh*t" instead of "hey back to school, save some money by buying your supplies here"? I don't get it. Stop concerning yourself with what your 10 year old thinks of you.
It's ok, I'm in marketing!

Parents at that age probably feel their own coolness slipping away and, so, try to be cool vicariously through their kids.  I know some mothers that age who just love Katy Perry and Justin Bieber and all that other bubblegum crap that's out there.  They seem to go out of their way to like what their kids like.  To me, it just seems to undermine their authority.  If my then-45 y/o parents got into the stuff I was listening to when I was 13 or 14, I'd have been a bit creeped out.

Anybody notice"teacher" has that Meagan Mullally thing going on? And she's just as annoying. Here's another thing.Why do they insist on ruining these 80's songs by jamming them into commercials every chance they get!!?
