"Target has been totally played by an offline troll," reports AdWeek. "Jeff Wysaski, a comedian known for his work on Pleated Jeans and Obvious Plant, this week put his design skills to work and created a slew of Black Friday fliers, placing the poster-style ads at a local Target. (It's unclear which location had the honor of housing Wysaski's handiwork.)"

More of his wackiness can be seen at his Pleated Jeans Twitter feed and at the Obvious Plant page at Facebook.
My favorite faux Target item has got to be the "Chewbacca toilet scrub brush." The brushy part of the item looks like the Star Wars character Chewbacca. It's one of three items on a full page of "exclusive Star Wars toys," and the scrub brush promises to "trick the kids into doing their chores!"
But there's the falcon, which I also love. No, not the Millennium Falcon of Star Wars, an actual real falcon. A bird, not a space ship. An actual spoof-by-troll falcon, actually, that Wysaski said would be given away free on Friday only to shoppers who spend $75 or more.
