The Verge: “Carly Rae Jepsen and Lil Yachty succeed in making me want to live at Target”


From The Verge:

Mike Will Made It Lil Yachty Carly Rae Jepsen It Takes Two Art1 8122822Last night’s Grammy Awards were 100 hours long and rife with injustice, including an all-too-predictable Album of the Year snub for Beyoncé’s Lemonade, a boy pop-punk duo taking off their pants in public, and an inexplicable zero nominations for Carly Rae Jepsen’s Emotion Side B.


However, there was one bright spot that nearly alleviated the sting of the other awful stuff: a Target commercial! Congratulations to capitalism, the real winner of the night. Carly Rae Jepsen and Lil Yachty starred in an elaborate musical ad choreographed by La La Land’s Mandy Moore, directed by Mozart in the Jungle creator Roman Coppola, and produced by hip-hop hitmaker Mike WiLL Made-It. They twirled around with dryer sheets and emoji pillows while performing a sticky sweet remix of Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock’s 1988 party song “It Takes Two.”


It is a treat in all ways. -Kaitlyn Tiffany
