Maria Bamford back on Target for “Black Friday” TV ad campaign

Thanksgiving is still a week away, but last night, I saw an amazing new ad for Target's "Black Friday" 2-day post-Turkey-Day sale that showed comedian Maria Bamford training and running all around the store. That spot's not online just yet, but others are.

Just like last year, it's nice to see Target making the most out of the Bammer, who like Target, is a Minnesota native.


Here's what's online so far. You can visit this page on Target to see the other clips as they become available.


And if you want to pull back the curtain and see why Target asked the Bammer back for 2010, then watch this calculated analysis on the company's 2009 ad campaign. Trade secrets! (Not really secret)
