Target Women: Story Time

In the latest episode of Target Women, Sarah Haskins takes a look at ads about magical cream cheese, ugly medusa hair, and every princess cliche you can think of. I think this might be my favorite one so far. “Milk will´╗┐ also bring sunshine to a land devastated by your period tears.” Sparkles!

Commercial Songs: Matt and Kim Sell Mojitos
