Most people have yet to pick out their Halloween costumes, much less think about their grocery list for Thanksgiving. Yet Kmart has already rolled out its first commercial for Christmas.
“Don’t let the holidays sneak up on you," the voiceover says in the ad, which features an overgrown gingerbread man sneaking up on a woman in an office. “Get in, get more Christmas."

The commercial promotes the retailer's free layaway program, but it put Hoda in a less-than-jolly mood Thursday.

“It’s genius,” KLG declared.
