Love it or hate it, you can’t deny a new Kmart commercial definitely gets your attention.

The commercial starts with a shot of six men standing behind a curtain while ringing bells. It’s what happens after the curtain is pulled back that people are talking about.

The men, wearing tuxedo tops with boxer bottoms, squat down and begin shaking their booties to the song “Jingle Bells.”

People flooded the Kmart Facebook page with compliments and complaints about the ad.

“I think the boxer commercial is AWESOME! Well done for thinking out of the box(ers)!” wrote one person.

Another disagreed. “I think Kmart needs to rethink this ad. For those of us who view Christmas as a Holy Day, this ad reduces the season to cheapness. I will avoid Kmart shopping this season.”

  • Secret

    This commercial is just a silly commercial for he holidays that people are taking too serious. & if you say it’s about Christmas, when did jingle bells go with Christmas. & if you say think about the children, stop trying to hide your children from society and what really goes on and teach them on your own that it’s wrong. Next time you take them to the mall or anywhere and you see someone in a skimpy outfit make sure you hide them from it since you don’t want then to know. & if your children aren’t mature enough to see this commercial & realize it’s a joke, they shouldn’t be allowed to watch tv.
