Sorry kiddos, here comes your first round of back to school campaigns. This new Target commercial uses a cover of Salt-n-Pepa’s Push It to get you all excited about new notebooks, pens and backpacks. (By the way, this is the second time a cover of Push It has appeared on our blog in a week. Salt-n-Pepa: so zeitgeisty!)
This time around the cover is done on some fun children”s instruments, and the resulting sound is pretty cool. It is also kind of familiar. If I were Jimmy Fallon and The Roots I might be a little annoyed at Target for biting my style…
But you know what they say: imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Unfortunately the cover from the Target commercial isn’t available for download. But you can still snag the original version of the song to get your Push It fix. Alternatively you could learn to play the melody on one of those children’s xylophones.
P.S. I miss DJ Spinderella.
