New Walmart Clown Commercial Goes Beyond Low Prices

Walmart is going out on a limb with a new clown commercial (featured above) that aired during the NFL conference finals. In the recent past, Walmart’s marketing strategy was relatively simple: Stream in-store ads and de-clutter stores. But the Walmart clown ad above is actually edgy, a new move for the traditionally mellow advertiser.

Did the commercial endear the company to the NFL-watching demographic? You bet.
