You know the one, with all the babies and what sounds like Shakira(not sure it's her though) singing "If you're happy and you know it" in English & Spanish. Anyway, have you been on the Target Facebook page? People are actually complaining about it, saying "WE'RE IN AMERICA! ENGLISH ONLY POR FAVOR!" Ok, maybe not the last part, but you get the drift. 

What do you think of the commercial? Do you hate it? Does hearing some Spanish on American TV make you loco??

ETA: Here's the commerical, btw.

For me, it's one thing if it's on the SPANISH channel but if it is on regular cable GTFO! I don't even let my kids watch Dora lol They need like a "Helga" show for the Spanish channel, teach them to learn ENGLISH! I am not sorry if this offends anyone because if I moved to France, guess what? I'd have to learn French right? I wouldn't expect them to make a "press 2 for French" selection for their phone calls or whatever....so stupid.

tsk tsk

 Since America has no official language, I don't see how it even matters.

I don't feel one way or the other about it. I don't pay much attention to commercials.

In America, a melting pot of different cultures and nationalities all mixed into one, which was established on the very principle of accepting and WELCOMING immigrants there is NO official language. So suck it up, butter-cup!

If you live in America, unless you are descended from Native Americans, your family came from fucking IMMIGRANTS.

I voted penis. Only because I'm ovulating and I get ahem, horny, when that happens.
So. Penis it is.

I think people are stupid when they complain about stupid things like some Spanish on a commercial.
I teach my children to embrace learning more than one language :)

I haven't seen it, but I doubt it would bother me. Even if we live in a mainly English speaking country, wth does it hurt to understand other languages?
