I must be hormonal because this is one of the most annoying commercials lately! I won't shop there (not that I really did before!) because it's so annoying. Why the hell are they singing about lights???????? Ugh!

So, it's about the lights for Christmas?????????? It's the most stupid thing ever, but then again I think they're making commercials EXTRA annoying so that we pay attention. Little do they know, if their commericals irk me, I scratch them off of my shopping list. Idiots!

No, it's not hormones. LOL! It's not just you. I think DH almost threw the remote at the tv this morning. And he's probably the most mellow, tolerant person I know.

WORST. COMMERCIAL. EVER.

Your not hormonal, it IS THE most annyoing commercial! I want to put my fist through the tv when it is on. That one and the Apples to Apples with the stupid bigfoot and Sexy Lincoln. The marketing people, for me at least, are not hitting the mark at all lately.

NOTHING is more annoying than 'Let's hum, hum, hum, hum!'

No. I will NOT hum.

Tiny cowboy hats would be worn only by tiny cowboys. And when 'Brown- Eyed Girl' would come up on the jukebox, all you would hear ... would be silence .... and 'Brown-Eyed Girl.'

I am surprised Kmart has commercials, they seem like a dying company.

PS - I don't watch tv, so we don't see commercials.

That's how it used to be for me when I lived on LI! It was so annoying!!

I wouldn't be AS irked with this K-Mart commercial if I knew what it was about, instead of hearing some dumbass sing. #1: I couldn't even UNDERSTAND that he was pronouncing the word "lights", and #2: It's so dumb!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There are so many annoying, stupid commercials out there. And for the record, I really don't even watch t.v.---DH does. I happen to hear it and get annoyed very easily. He usually knows enough to mute commercials.

Bloody hell...I just saw it! Bad enough to have Christmas commercials before Thanksgiving (won't beat that dead horse again) but geez louise, at least make it a GOOD commercial.
I have to admit, I kinda like the Target commercial with the dog trotting through the town with a bag of gifts in his mouth. And I always think of the Peas when I see it!! I don't know why, I just do!

i dont even use this website, ever. but i literally got so fed up with the stupid commercial coming on TWICE every time the commercials come on that i went through the trouble of making an account just to hopefully be 1 more person kmart sees writing about how stupid that commercial is. the next time that commercial comes on im jabbing the nearest object into my eyes and jumping out of a window. ill never shop there again just because of the commercial, as a matter of fact, im taking a crate of 500 white mice there and releasing them right now.

The new Target one is really awful too. It makes me want to throw things at the TV.

I am past the hormone stage and I ahve to tell you that I absolutely hate that commercial. It makes me cringe and by the time I grab the remote it is over but stuck in my head.

I will be the weirdo - I like that KMart commercial! But then again, I've only seen it 2 or 3 times. Maybe after the 15th or 20th time, I will have a change of heart.


The Target ones, though - what were THEY thinking?! THOSE are some annoying @$$ commercials. Borderline CREEPY.

Throwing my remote through the tv in agreement with all of you! So annoying that we just got done dealing with the horrible political ads, and now we have these to drive us nuts in their place.

Took me a damn week of watching it to even figure out who it was for. I wouldn't shop there now, if somebody paid me

I saw this commercial yesterday and I was all "THIS is what everyone was complaining about?!" I barely even noticed it until it was almost over and then it just clicked that that's what it was.

Maybe because I'm done with both PMS and menopause.

I don't mind the K-Mart commercial but the Target black Friday commercial is like fingernails grating on a chalk board to me. I am so over it.

You don't have to make an excuse for thinking something is annoying. People are allowed to get annoyed and don't feel bad about it. Especially when it comes to commercials. They are annoying! I haven't seen that commercial because we dvr most shows so we can skip commercials. But I agree that when I see a commercial, I usually think it's annoying too. At least the political ads are done. They drove me crazy. We usually have the news on live or the Today show, so I do get stuck listening to commercials sometimes. I don't like the new Target one at all. But I love Target!

I hate the layaway Kmart commercial they show on Nick Jr. (The only place I've seen it, actually) The one with the fainting woman and the one with the woman's "surprised" face really irks me...I don't know if it's the music they've used or the commercial as a whole. I mute it.

I do not think I can watch TV that is not on DVR until after 25 Dec, this commercial seems to come on ALL DAY LONG! I leave whatever USA marathon is on in the background and I am having to mute it CONSTANTLY because of that commercial.

And it is so stupid...the lights that light the lights!? WTF!?

Yeah, unfortunately I caught that commercial again last night! Don't they realize that you can't even UNDERSTAND that they're singing, "the lights". It sounds like it could be "the likes". How does this crap get past advertising??? It's a turn-off to me and I instantly respond by NOT shopping there. I tell DH that I feel like these loud, annoying, stupid commercials "rape my ears". (and before we go there, YES, I'm very sensitive to the word "rape," but having been actually raped I stick by my word). I wish there could be a button on the remote to mute commercials. DH is learning to mute the tv before he leaves a room or even a minute!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ughhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Wow, what a strong response to a commercial. It doesn't bother me at all and certainly doesn't "rape" my ears. FFS.

CrankyPea: Sorry!!

IHateKMartNow: I agree--what's up with showing a commercial twice in a row???? It's a bad marketing ploy!!!!

Hobbygirl: I abhor that layaway commercial too. I guess anything over the top, too loud, or too annoying just turns me right off. I won't even talk about car commercials that seem to be stuck on BAD '70's songs. Ugh!
