    It’s that time of year again – the post-Thanksgiving holiday shopping rush.

    Target stores, which will open at 6 a.m. on the Friday after Thanksgiving, is once again offering to help their shoppers get out of bed to get to their sales with a special wake-up call. Consumers can go to the Target Wake-up website and sign up for a free, pre-recorded wake-up call from celebrities – this year’s list of big name callers include Kermit the Frog (Steve Whitmire), model Carolyn Murphy, and country singer Brad Paisley.

    Along with signing up for a wake-up call from Kermit, you can visit the Target Wake-up website to watch the 5 delightfully entertaining “Target wake-up call” commercials that feature Kermit the Frog eating flies, playing banjo, and singing a lullaby (look in the “Watch the Films” section). You can also download an exclusive Quicktime video featuring Kermit singing himself to sleep in the “Download free stuff” section. Be sure to check them out, they are fun, entertaining, a real treat for Kermit fans.

    So surf over to the Target website and sign up for a call from Kermit (currently Kermit has had the most wake-up calls lined-up for with over 40% of the registered calls). The wake-up calls (which you can get for the one-day sale, or the two-day sale) are free and easy to do (just pick your caller – I recommend Kermit – and then enter your phone number and call time). So if you’re planning on shopping at Target (and even if you’re not), be sure to check out the website (and if you want, sign up for a call from Kermit).

    OMG those were hilarious!

    I especially love when Brad Paisley said "I got nothin'", then Kermit: "I didn't think so".

    Great stuff, signed up for my call from Kermit!

    Actually... Good to know who that was. Saw the commercial with Kermit playing banjo last night on the WB, not sure if it was in the commercials before or during Charmed.

    Neat little bit with da' frog on the banjo.

    Thanks GW. I loved them too. My favoirte as well as Ed's is the banjo one. That one cracks me up bad. My mom has seen some on the TV. Don't know which ones tho. But I love it. I wonder if you could get a plush kermit at Target?

    Thanks for the tip.... I actually do get up early on Friday for the shopping madness and nothing is better than Kermit calling you at 4 am.

    Hooray! I'm glad I saw this in time, because I gotta have Kermit wake me up. Last year I picked Darth Vader, but then some random Stormtrooper called me and told me that Vader wanted me to get up. I'm looking forward to actually hearing from the one and only Kermit the Frog!

    YAY! I got my call a few minutes ago. I won't go into detail so as not to ruin the fun, but it sure was coooool!

    Wish I could get a call like that every morning. That would be awesome!
