Beyonce Flash Mob Will Make You Stop Hating Target For About Four Minutes

Target is the devil et cetera et cetera, but damn if we don’t love the racial diversity and hip-hop dance in their flash mob video hyping Beyonce’s “End Of Time.” They should ask the male Chinese cheerleader to join in the next one.

      Is that the former American Idol contestant who was arrested for huffing paint on Hollywood Blvd? Good to see he’s in recovery.

      Todrick Hall (child scamming douchenozzle) and the music of Beyonce (overrated hack) combined?

      See now that actually makes me want to boycott Target.

      Honestly? Lighten up people.

      Yes, flash mobs commandeered by advertising firms is a bit cloying and annoying- but to me it’s only reprehensible when they try to make it look like it’s not. This didn’t really try to be anything but a very, VERY obvious ad campaign.

      And regardless of whether you like the director or Beyonce (and I don’t blame you for disliking either)- those people looked like they were having a blast. And if I were one of those dancers I’d be thrilled to be doing this- if for no better reason than having the opportunity to get exposure and money for doing something I love.

      To each their own though.

      The only thing more obnoxious than a fake flash mob is a bunch of queens staring in a fake flash mob for a bigoted company.

      Aww… I went to high school with that guy. Good ol’ James Bowie High. Enough about that! Why is Todrick mouthing the words?!? If he planned on do that, then he should of just did it in drag! It takes my focus off the actual dancing…Distracting! And…! This “flash mob” looks like an actual music video with a flash mob in it. (Good quality but still crappy enough to be a Ke$ha video.) Too bad it wasn’t filmed with an actual element of surprise. I just think Todrick really wants to get some “more” publicity after his American Idol boot since he really wasn’t talked about right after that. However, great choreography! Don’t care much for the song, but I thought this was a nice “dance video”. Too bad I didn’t get those flash mob goosebumps I was expecting. Tear…

      Ugh…Todrick Hall. What kind of person does COSTUME CHANGES during a flash mob? Someone who’s desperate for attention. This wasn’t even a proper flash mob, it wasn’t about the mob at all, it was about HIM.

      FAKE FAKE FAKE!

      Five Small Reasons:

      1) Security, anyone? Target employees continue on their normal business while this goes down, even announcing their closure times — which a “flah mob” would be in danger of disturbing.
      2) Heavy duty camera at approx 2:10… which is odd considering its vantage point isn’t used much in the final product. You’d think the best camera would be used as the primary, instead of some faux mobile shot, huh?
      3) End Credits? You’re doing it wrong.
      4) How many racially diverse attractive 18-24yo people can you get into one “flash mob?”

      And the BIG reasons:

      1) Why is EVERYONE wearing Target Red? Not a single person is wearing a noticeable brand-name shirt, red or not.
      2) The I (heart) shirts on display? Yeah, you can get those at Target.
      3) Why a new Beyonce song? Because Beyonce very recently signed a big-time partnership deal with… wait for it… Target.

      Fake-ity Fake Fake.

      STOPPING FLASH MOB

      If you listen to me “Flash Mobs” will be stopped and or deterred! First make it illegal for any store to operate without video cameras. From the mom and pop to the big big stores! FIRST:

      1. If a cop capture any one of the participants. That person will be charge a thousand dollars for each of the other participants and his or herself!
      2. The only way the person capture can reduce their fine is by identifying other participant in the “Flash Mob“..

      3. The videotape off the “Flash Mob be should daily on every news channel!

      4. If someone from the public identify a “Flash Mob” participant. That person would be paid two thousand dollar by the person her or she identify!
      5. NO jail time if the Flash Mob” participant DOES NOT have a weapon…Instead the participant if not in school must get a high school diploma. If her or she has one they must get a college degree two or four year degree. Then paid their fines!
      6 If they drop out there fine must be paid in 6 months…..if not paid….. 30 days in jail then another 6 month to paid and another $1,000…repeat until paid!

      NOTE” Law Enforcement must learn that jail and prison is not a solution to all criminal acts! Matter of fact in my opinion jail and prison create a better criminal and the public pays many times over! First the public pays by the crime…Then by placing the criminal in jail or prison.. The public pay with there taxes! Then by having a criminal record the criminal can’t get a job…So the public taxes pay by way of welfare!

      STOPPING FLASH MOB & GROUP ATTACKS.

      If you listen to me “Flash Mobs”OR Group Attacks will be stopped and or deterred! First make it illegal for any store to operate without video cameras. From the mom & pop to the big big stores! FIRST:

      1. If a cop capture any one of the participants in the Flash Mob 0r Group Attackers). That person will be charge a thousand dollars for each of the other participants plus his or herself!

      2. The only way the person capture can reduce their fine is by identifying other participant in the “Flash Mob“..or Group Attackers!

      3. The videotape of the “Flash Mob be shown daily on every news channel until all are capture!

      4. If someone from the public identify a “Flash Mob” participant. That person would be paid two thousand dollar by the person he or she identify! Plus a $1,000 to the store violated!

      5. NO jail time if the Flash Mob” “or Group Attackers participant DO NOT have a weapon…Instead the participant if not in school must get a high school diploma. If he or she has one they must get a college degree two or four year degree. Then paid their fines!

      7. Any violation during sentence will result in repeating sentence and double fines!

      NOTE” Create a web page and publish the partcipants picture and their static…Whether they been capture or still at large! The Department of Correction must create a uniform program. Where Flash Mob & Group Attackers are sentence to wear a yellow uniform for the amount of time sentence or until fines are paid. These uniform will be wore everyday! The uniform will state the crime the participant is sentence to! It would also have the inmates number. Law Enforcement must learn that jail and prison is not a solution to all criminal acts! Matter of fact in my opinion jail and prison create a better criminal and the public pays many times over! First the public pays by the crime…Then by placing the criminal in jail or prison.. The public pay with there taxes! Then by having a criminal record the criminal can’t get a job…So the public taxes pay by way of welfare or more criminal activity! Politician must draft laws that protect Americans citizen.

      WHAT A LIE ABOUT AMERICA BEING A MORE RESPECTFUL COUNTRY….THEN

      I written many times about the abuse of authority in America! I also have stated before how American can see evil in other countries and paticipate in the same evil in America. Case in point: In WACO Texas the American Federal Government murder 74 human being in America some as young as a day old! Yet we condemn Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and attack his country become of his horrible treatment of his citizen in Iraq! There are allot of American Saddam Hussein in the form of American police officers. In America, now officially a police state, you will be tasered in your own home if you lip off to the police.
      Senior citizen Peter McFarland of Marin County, California, discovered this after he fell down the stairs outside his home last year. On June 29, 2009, McFarland tumbled down the stairs and after his wife called paramedics the cops showed up. They entered McFarland’s home and tasered him because they claimed he was suicidal.
      “We want to take you to the hospital for an evaluation, you said if you had a gun, you’d shoot yourself in the head,” a deputy can be heard saying on a video of the incident captured on a taser mounted camera. McFarland said the comment was hyperbole made because he was in pain.
      “Stand up, put your hands behind your back or you’re going to be tased,” the deputy commanded. McFarland refused, told the police in no uncertain terms to get out of his house, so the cop tased him not once, but three times, as his wife looked on in horror and pleaded with the cops to stop because her husband has a heart condition.
      McFarland’s lawyer, John Scott, said the cops did not have a search warrant or any reason to enter the McFarland residence. Scott told KGO-TV in San Francisco his client was arrested, jailed and charged with resisting arrest. A judge later dismissed the charge. McFarland has filed suit against the Marin County Sheriff’s Department. This didn’t happen in Iraq or Afganistan ….this happen in America! What a lie that America is a more respectful country then other third world undevelop countries! Authority in America not monitor always leads to abuse of authority!!!!!
      Mr.McFarland needed medical help what he got was a abusive and disrespectful American police officer. That could careless!

      A white volunteer community watch captain who shot an unarmed Florida teenager to death last month had been the subject of complaints by neighbors in his gated community for aggressive tactics, a homeowner said. George Zimmerman has not been charged in the Feb. 26 shooting of Trayvon Martin, 17, who was walking back from a store in his family neighborhood. The shooting of Trayvon Martin is in line with how America see young black men. It is also understandable! There is usually nothing done to a cop that murders unarmed black males. The American court system give the cops a past. Black people are seen as less then human and criminals! So this shooting of Trayvon was going to happen. White people see that the court system cares nothing for justice for black people. America is being train to think less of a black person life! This so-call white “Watch Captain” have witness many many white cops shoot unarmed black males! The cop is back to work before the body is in the ground!

      Ones again there will be another black family crying. Ones again a press conference with the family and Rev. Sharpton . Then a marching then chanting “No justice no peace”! Then waiting for the next black unarmed person to be murder! Nothing will change! Trayvon will be added to the group of unarmed black people murder! Not one politician will say anything. Now saggy pant that such a evil some politician have gotten law past against saggy pants. But the murder of unarmed American citizen NOTHING!

      While black men and women are fighting and dying for their country in Afghanistan. Back in their country white cops and white citizen are murdering unarmed black men and women. You won’t hear nothing from Nancy Grace. She only cover white people! She nor any white pundit will openly condemn the shooting of a unarmed black American citizen. That happen to be black! Dr.Phil won’t be covering the story either…No whites on TV go with the stereotype too!
