I saw this “Back to School” Walmart commercial while watching the Olympics and really liked it:
“Smell that? Thatâ€™s the new school year approaching and you are ready for the challenge. At Walmart, we have everything you need to own the first day and every single day of the school year. With our low prices, there is nothing you canâ€™t have and nothing you canâ€™t do!”
I felt nostalgic for the Eighties withÂ Whitesnake’s “Here I Go Again” rocking in the background (and who can forget the music video with hottieÂ Tawny KitaenÂ on the hoods of twoÂ cars).
But mostly, I liked the fact that Walmart included an Asian American boy rocking to the song, with glimpses of his parents.
But the Walmart commercial doesn’t beat my all time favorite Target ad.
