I’m sure you’ve seen this commercial from Kohl’s promoting it’s Black Friday sale….using Rebecca Black’s infamous “Friday” song.
If not, here it is:
Clearly this is an ad. Clearly this was intended to be a funny ad. I like it. It’s a great play on a very memorable song…in an ad that pokes fun at itself (“Can’t get this darn song out of my head!”)
You know what I REALLY like about this ad? The fact that Kohls didn’t STEAL the song and try to say it was a “parody” to try to avoid paying licensing fees. Read an article here; Rebecca was paid for her appearance in the commercial and use of the song.
Way to go Kohls!
