The Gap's celebrity holiday ads are almost as much of a cold-weather tradition as spiking your egg nog, and/or returning that sweater that same clueless family member got you yet again. This year, celebs like Jennifer Hudson, futuro-Billie Holiday singer Janelle Monae (shown below with Napoleon Dynamite's Jon Heder) plus Flo Rida, The Dixie Chicks, Ashanti, and Trey Songz, and actors... including Saturday Night Live cast members AND Twilight's Cam Gigandet... are starring in print ads and in online videos featuring jingles, remixed carols, and lots of knitwear. Trust me, your friends will be bombarding your inbox with these Flash-heavy vignettes as soon as the puppy cam gets old.
Now doesn't that make you wanna go buy a holiday sweater (by the way, "Holiday Sweater" by Pas/ Cal is such a great song) or at least some socks? No? Too much crass commercialism for you? 'Kay. Watch Weezer's "Undone (The Sweater Song)," you big Grinch! And thanks for RUINING CHRISTMAS!
