Ad Critic Quote of the Week

Seth Stevenson, on the Black Eyed Peas' Target ad:

People, look at this commercial. Observe how eagerly—how incredibly naturally—the Peas embrace the role of discount store shill. Stop for a moment and ponder the fact that will.i.am has a giant Target logo on his hat.

A line must be drawn. I draw it here. I realize I'm not breaking news. I realize when the music's this bad it's sort of beyond the point. And I realize the "artists" in question couldn't care less. But I need to say it just the same: Black Eyed Peas, you're a bunch of sellouts.

Grade: F. Let's get some dignity up in here.

I don't care how many #1 singles the Peas have- I still think they suck.
