I figure these ads will be right before the After Thanksgiving sales for Friday & Saturday, as a new approach for potential customers.

You guys are too much. You're on the internet, and yet you can't look around the Web site (http://target.com/target_group/stores_services/wake_up.jhtml?_requestid=3437659) that explains this to see what it's about.

Yes, if you shop at Target during the Nov. 26-27 sale, then you'll get a free wake-up call from one of these choices. It's probably a promo for some new service they're trying to get into -- automated "celebrity" voiced wake-up calls.

They're just trying to be fun and silly... the direct opposite of Wal*Mart (aka not fun and dreary.) I saw Cheech Marin there, he's my choice.

I like the new one with Ice-T and Vader.

"Hey Vader, man, you're gonna get us in trouble with that heavy breathing!" :crazed:

I got my call a few minutes ago. Vader was breathing in the background, but a stormtrooper was talking.

"This is stormtroper _____ (forget the number). Lord Vader commands you to wake up for the Target 2-Day Sale. An Imperial Shuttle will be waiting in the parking lot."

Yeah,I thought it was going to be Vaders voice(Couldnt go get the voice changer?:D)

It just sounded like a typical geek leaving a message for a toy run.Imperial Shuttle = code for mom's car ;) Interesting little promotion anyways,it got a lot of media attention.

The TV commerical also showed a Stormtrooper but I don't see that option.
