Another promotion - called "BullseyeUniversity.com" - sounds like an online version of “Big Brother". From July 15-18, popular YouTube personalities will co-exist in dorm rooms (furnished with shoppable Target merchandise) and be broadcast live on YouTube. The roommates - chosen based on their online reach and appeal to college-aged students - include Chester See, a producer, actor, musician and entrepreneur; Meekakitty (Tessa Violet), a vlogger, guitar-player and music video maker; Magic of Rahat, YouTube’s premier magician and prankster; Brooke “Dodger” Leigh, a gamer and DIY “nerd-craft”-obsessive, and Clothes Encounters (Jenn Im), fashion vlogger of style musings, tutorials and lifestyle advice. Shoppers can interact with the roommates, who will be gathered in the communal lounge when not hanging out in their own rooms.
Target will also sponsor after-hours shopping events for incoming freshmen at select colleges and universities across the country. During August and September, about 90,000 students will be conveyed by bus from their campus to Target stores for entertainment, offers and shopping.
