Target Ain’t People: A Musical Protest

Posted in Arts and Entertainment, Humor, News by Bob Higgins on September 24, 2010

When Target spent $150,000 to support a Minnesota politician who favors anti-gay legislation, thousands of people decided to boycott the big-box chain. But instead of simply shopping elsewhere, these activists turned to the popular musical-style TV show, GLEE, for inspiration. With choreography, a catchy tune, and Target accessories as props, they took shoppers and employees by surprise.  From Yes Magazine.

Target Ain’t People

I read about the Target campaign contributions and resulting boycott a couple weeks ago but I missed this wonderful video.

I’ve always admired agit-prop protests and considered them to be among the most attention getting and effective ways to point out the truth about official or private wrong doing.
