Target's Two Day Sale Will Make You Insane

target_two_day_sale.jpg

If ever there was a perfect example of our obsession with materialism, it would be this Target campaign with comedian Maria Bamford touting the retailer's upcoming two day sale, apparently, if the campaign is to be believed, one of the year's most frenzied shopping events.

With eight commercials, Bamford shows us just how insane we can get when it comes to Christmas shopping. And it isn't a pretty site. We think we'll stay home with The Adrants Interns. They're much less stressful to be around.

Consumer Reports Makes Naughty and Nice List

trish-stratus-naughty-nice.jpg

Just in time for the holidays, Consumer Reports has created a Naughty and Nice list. On the list are brands which have nice customer service policies and brands with not so nice customer service policies. Take a look.

Nice:

1 Southwest. Two pieces of checked luggage, no charge. And that includes bulky freight such as golf clubs and skis.

2 L.L.Bean. 100 percent product satisfaction guarantee. Return anything at any time for any reason.

3 Zappos.com. Free shipping and free returns, including prepaid return label.

4 Costco. Open-ended return policy for virtually everything the warehouse retailer sells minus some home electronics, which come with a still-generous 90-day return period.

5 U.S. Cellular. While the FCC is proposing that cell carriers alert consumers who are about to exceed their plans' monthly minutes allotment, which could lead to significant overage charges, this company is already practicing due diligence and giving its customers a heads up.

Just Because She's Drunk Doesn't Mean She Wants It

drunk_sex_poster.jpg

With the realization over half of all sexual assaults are alcohol-related, SAVE, a collection of cause groups fighting sexual assault, has launched the Don't Be That Guy campaign. Targeting 18-24 year old men, the poster campaign carries straight forward messaging that includes the headlines, "Just because you help her home ... doesn't mean you get to help yourself and "Just because she isn't saying no ... doesn't mean she's saying yes." A third, to be placed above urinals in men's rooms, will carry the headline, "Just because she's drunk doesn't mean she wants to f***."
