More holiday commercials are airing, and we’re still more than a month away from Christmas!

The latest one that is causing some stir is Kmart’s Joe Boxer Christmas. The 55-second commercial features a group of men in boxer shorts, shaking their bums to “Jingle Bells.”

The ad caused quite the controversy on the company’s Facebook page, where people used words like “offensive” and “disgusting” to describe it.  However, not everyone was upset.  One fan wrote, “DON’T YOU DARE take down the commercial of men jingling!…I think the Victoria’s Secret commercials with nearly NAKED women dressed as ANGELS is more offensive!!!!”
