Targeting consumers


I’ve walked by this on the way into Target at least 20 times I’m sure. I actually like the art direction here, all things considered. It’s pleasing to look at from a distance. Does anyone remember Target Video? They sent us a videotape in the 80’s, some random punk performance, I can’t remember who. I believe their entire catalog was early videotapes of live punk shows in and around San Francisco. They were the ones that recorded the Cramps at a state mental institution. I don’t recall if any money changed hands or not, although I have a vague recollection of actually placing a Target Video advert in an S&A print zine, so maybe they pay us. Target Video still has a blog going, I wonder what they’re up to.




A couple random Target Video clips. Looks like they don’t have their own YouTube channel, and a couple past vids have been yanked when posted by others, so enjoy while you can.

    yeah the target videos were always black and white weren;t they? and shot with one camera, normally pretty badly. Still, a pretty seminal record of an amazing musical time.
