Passed on by Karen Chung on Facebook, a HuffPo piece (with video) about a Kmart ad with ostentatious taboo avoidance:
‘Ship My Pants’ Kmart Ad: For The 12-Year-Old In All Of Us
Looks like Kmart has finally said, “F it, we’re not Target and we’re not Walmart… we’re @#$%*! Kmart.”
Touting the fact that if you can’t find what you’re looking for in store you can find it online and then have it sent to your home, Kmart has introduced its “Ship My Pants” ad… which you will make you laugh despite your higher aspirations.
Not since Benny Bell’s immortal “Shaving Cream”, has the word shit not been said [repeatedly] with such glee.
We shall endeavor to ship our pants very soon. Thanks, Kmart!
