KMART COMMERCIAL CONTROVERSY

Yet another K-mart ad is creating a stir online.

The ad is called Show Your Joes, and advertises Joe Boxer boxer shorts.

It starts with six guys in tuxedo tops behind a curtain — but Kmart is taking heat for what happens next.


WATCH THE ENTIRE AD BELOW:

Shoppers are taking issue with the men’s dance moves paired with the song “Jingle Bells.”

Some are calling the ad disgusting and distasteful on the store’s Facebook page. Some think it’s marketing gold. A company spokesperson says the ad was intended to be playful — not offensive.


FOOT LOCKER’S PERFECT WORLD

Another clever ad pairs sports superstars imagining a perfect world.

NBA superstar Kyrie Irving stars alongside Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, Brett Farve, Craig Sager and Dennis Rodman in the Foot Locker ad.

The commericial is promoting Foot Locker’s “Week of Greatness.”
