We wrote about another Target Back to School commercial and a few of you commented you also liked the one with “the male teacher.” (Additionally, both Janice and Esther requested this one through our form. Thanks, ladies!) Here it is! This is a fun one, also by W+K ad agency. They’re really killing it lately with these back to school ads! The actor in the spot is Ben Falcone. You might recognize him as “Air Marshall John” from the movie Bridesmaids. Well, this time around he’s a zany teacher that likes to sing about school supplies and his words seemingly transform the room into something very modern and artistic, and then into denim. Neat!
The song is another parody/cover. The original is called “Word Up” and there are versions by both Cameo (the original) and Korn. To download the song by Cameo, click here:

Here are the lyrics in the commercial:
Get your backpacks, your hoodies, Harajuku
Turquoise, kinda purple, orangish, sorta blue
Backpacks, ow, to put their stuff in
Graphic tees and denim, denim, denim, denim
