slightly fun. doesn't really fit jcp at all. im happy jcp is trying to up it's image a bit. but when kids think fashion they don't think jcp. will this spot change that? there is a slim chance but i doubt it.

Please don't kill me because I don't remember the titles of the spots, but their previous spots like "Magician" and "Aviator" were FAR more superior to this piece. They were very imaginative, emotional and conceptual.

And I do agree (to some extent) with the above commentor who said this spot displays "wrong values" for the audience (although it's targeted towards adult parents.) The message does feel somewhat irresponsible especially coming from a big-name brand like JCP.

It's neither entertaining nor memorable.

Yep, and that's exactly my point!

I rest my case.

I really hope Penney won't have to pull this spot off the air...

Seriously? If we start thinking this is too risque, I fear for the future of advertising. This spot was fun and gives me new perspective on JCP. I'd consider going "back to school shopping" here after seeing this ad.
