There’s now a long tradition of fun and well-made singing-and-dancing holiday ads for the Gap, and this latest cheerleading incarnation doesn’t disappoint. The one with the little girls is equally enjoyable. Yes, that’s right. My cynical outer shell has been cracked by little girls chanting “How cute are these boots?”
I can’t really complain about the look of this commercial, but other aspects of it rub me the wrong way. The girl, while cute, comes off as being privileged and smug. Also, Queen Latifah? Why? What? At least we don’t have to endure the abridged “Yes, Virginia” as recited by Jessica Simpson and Donald Trump this year.
