(Confusedyea...they're baaaaack - but now with their new friends from Homegoods! Jerkylips cranked up a thread about them in 2009, well...welcome to 2011)
 
WHY do we need to be inspired to go broke at the mall by a bunch of dancing credit-card abusers?
This is just terrible.

Now, that's gay.  And I mean that in every sense of the word.

I have to say, I love the Holy Trinity (TJMaxx, Marshalls, and Ross. My family calls them that because in the nearby city all three are on the same road). They have amazing prices, and I always find something nice there, be it clothing, jewelry, or housegoods (Or even guilty pleasure splurges, like LEGO sets more than 50% off their regular prices).
 
That said, this T.J.Maxx/Marshalls commercials are just terrible. Not as obnoxious as Burlington Coat Factory's (also pretty good, but hit and miss because some are well organised, some look like an over-priced ghetto Goodwill), but still they really upset me for being so terrible and associated with my favourite stores.
 
But there is one good thing. At least it's a break from the dumb women going 'I'm not a fashionista, I'm a Maxxinista"

This commercial just grates on the nerves.  Maybe it's because I'm a guy, but I can't fathom anything less appealing to me then being in that building around all those singing idiots.  And I've considered, bone marrow transplant among other things.

Being in a mall is bad.  Being in a mall at Christmastime is worse.  Being in a mall at Christmastime with Glee running around being gleeful would be---well, I might have to kill them.

OK, the worst part of these commercials is that NONE - not one - of these people are even trying to lip synch correctly. Not sure if it's lazy editing, stupid dancers, or what.

Let's put it this way. If I was in a mall and a bunch of morons started dancing and singing like that I'd hit the sporting goods store, buy a hunting rifle and solve the problem myself.

Good idea. And after they're down from that hit them again in the throat. Either you kill them outright or sever their vocal chords. Either way they'll never be able to subject others to the agony that is their singing again. Might also wanna break their legs so they can't dance around like a frog having a siezure anymore as well.

"GLEE-full" is right...they're singing in that pseudo high pitched little girly voice that is supposed to be cute...but it isn't.

I call them the axis of retail evil because of their sh***y commercials. Maxinista? Puleeze. And now these a-holes took one of the worst songs ever hoisted on us and adopted it to proclaim working their employees like the kids in Kathy Lee's sweatshops. And like Target opening at midnight on Thanksgiving night is an exercise in stupidity, waste of energy and spoiling their unfortunate employees holiday.

I'll tell you what really grates me. This:

...quick, quick, quick,
Pay far less for the same great deal


Does anyone here think "quick" and "deal" rhyme? Here's the original song:

Up on the rooftop, click, click, click
Down through the chimney with good St. Nick

Now, musician though I am not, I think "click" and "nick" rhyme. I actually like TJ Maxx/Marshall's/Homegoods. Why the bad commercial? Why ruin the song? Why, if you're going to make the commercial and ruin the song, would you at least not use words that RHYME? It's so jarring and awkward, even more so than the rest of this piece of crap.

Every time I hear the commercial, my brain wants to rhyme "sh*t" at the spot you're talking about.

I think the song's rhyme scheme and the jarring feeling this line causes, were actually to get people like me to notice.
Lmao, I don't know if it's just because I'm weird, but to be honest I think more people than you'd probably think do the same thing.

♪"SAME GREEEAAAAT ....    sh*t!"♫

Yea. I love the holidays.

That one gent in the plaid scarf looks like he's thoroughly enjoying his skip. It's like he's putting everything he's got into getting that leg up high.
 
The singing blonde has a huge pie hole, too. I want to stuff a fruitcake into it to shut her up.

I thought it was the black guy with the fauxhawk who seemed to be in all his glory...especially at 14 seconds in.

Thor, I went back and looked - yes, he does look Peter Pan-ish flying around. But at .06 the white dude with the plaid scarf really gets into it, too.
 
fauxhawk - LMAO!

ARGH I CAN'T STAND THIS COMMERCIAL.

Not only raping a Christmas classic but singing it wrong too. They're singing way too high a pitch to be tolerable. AHHH!!!!

Someone take their vocal cords away so they can stop singing!!!!!Angry

I don't mind high-pitched voices. A few singers I love have them; however, I HATE when the pitch of a voice is totally fake, which really seems to be the case here.

 
The choreography really is awful. I find it hilarious that Petite Japanese actresses in Takarazuka play male characters far more masculine than these guys are. I think whoever choreographed this didn't realise there'd be men in it.
