Lost-themed Target commercials

If you were among of the millions of Lost fans who watched the series finale last night (as I was) you probably caught one of the three tribute commercials by Target. This one spoofed the hatch alarm by pitching computer keyboards. I thought the commercials were awesome, and it was brilliant of Target to tie popular themes of the show (the hatch, the wild boar, and the smoke monster) to their ad spots during the final episode.

Thanks to my DVR, we fast forwarded thru all of these commercials! Thanks for sharing this. That ending still has me scratching my head. Sad that the show is over.

They were brilliant and brought a smile to my face while the show made me cry!

Those were terrific. Nice job, Target.

Target is just cool, plain and simple! Their other adds are so well done and eye candy in HD!

They were the best part of the god awful, pulled out of the butt, answer avoiding, deus ex machina ending of a show that clearly never had any idea of where it was going... Good commercials, lame finale.

LOL....Critifur, we should have an offline discussion about our frustrations with the finale! In the meantime, check out this hilarious video about all the unanswered LOST questions:

Thank you Target-Addict! That was great, and exactly how I think... I am not that mad about it because I came to the realization 4 years ago that it was gonna end badly, and it was all a long con. The best finale for any show ever had to be Six Feet Under.
