On Demand Video: Mall Commercial So Bad, It's Good!

First off, this spot is for EAST HILLS MALL in Missouri, not the mall here on Transit Rd.  We're betting they invited regular shoppers to step up to the mic and sing/show what they bought (or even store workers to do it), in hopes of saving money and not paying for a slick commercial.  In our mind, it worked!  This is so bad, it's memorable, and likeable!
