This amusing K-Mart ad for Joe Boxer is causing some controversy but this isn't the first time – I actually find this ad from a few years ago even sexier!

O. No. Someone is wrong on the Internet!

Thanks to that, I find myself wondering just what it was about 1962. A person from Clare, Michigan, weighed in complaining about the ad and saying, "My children grew up at Kmart way before Wal-mart or Meijer's."

Only K-Mart, Walmart, and Meijer's all opened their doors under those names in 1962. Each tracks back earlier in the century, but the names all date to that year. (As Meijer Thrifty Acres on the last one.) Both K-Mart and Meijer started in Michigan, and Clare is 60 miles closer to Meijer's home town than to K-Mart's!

The Vaughn Lowery Joe Boxer Boogie ads look much older than a mere decade ago (well, okay, 11 years). I'll take the ringers' moves myself. :-)
