Apparently The New Yorker is publishing an issue that features advertisements from just one entity: Target.
That just doesn’t feel right. The ads are elaborate and, I must say, quite arresting. But that doesn’t change the fact that they’re celebrating a store that’s just a few notches down from Wal-Mart.
And there’s something else not quite right about it. I echo one of the comments posted on this page (which features several of the ads): Isn’t it a bit strange for The New Yorker to have an issue featuring artwork in which targets are painted all over New York buildings?
