“ This Target ad is senselessly subversive on so many levels that it begs pointing out this article in the U.K. Telegraph headlined, Girls Being Brainwashed to Be Promiscuous featuring Carol Platt Liebau’s new book about how our sex-obsessed culture damages girls.”
“ Unfortunately we are unable to respond to your inquiry because Target does not participate with nontraditional media outlets. This practice is in place to allow us to focus on publications that reach our core guest.”

The tie in
Tie In: Mentos and Diet Coke Photos by Robert Price and Gizmodo http://www.eepybird.com/dcm1.html
“ Who would have guessed that Mentos sales would go up 15 to 20%, that traffic to Coke.com would double, and that we'd be doing Diet Coke & Mentos twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week! Now the friendly folks at Coke and Mentos provide us with the soda and candy for our new projects, which is great since we've been through almost 4,000 bottles of Diet Coke and over 24,000 Mentos so far.” – Eppy Bird
