Say goodnight to the American shopping mall.

A mall in Missouri thought the best idea for a new commercial would be for shoppers to stand in front of a camera and sing the word of an item they had purchased.

According to Caroline Thalasinos, the mall's GM, the entire point of the video was to look as unprofessional and embarrassing as possible.

Well that's something to hang your hat on when the parking lot is empty in the not too distant future.
