Upstart blog Fucked in Park Slope thinks the Atlantic Avenue Target is a little underwhelming. Or, as they put it: "You're supposed to walk into Target, anywhere, and know exactly what you're getting. This place always looks like downtown Baghdad post Bush/Cheney special sauce bombz."

The video above is part one in a four-part series—stay tuned for more.
