(Newser) – Last night's Lost series finale left a lot of critics unhappy, but one thing most viewers agreed on was the cleverness of the Target ads that incorporated the show's mythology. "Can we have more of these, please?" asks New York's Vulture blog. "How about one for Dramamine showing the crash of Flight 815?" For now, we'll have to settle for the smoke monster selling smoke detectors, "The Numbers" in a pitch for keyboards, and barbecue sauce for the Island's wild boars. Maybe it works on polar bears, too. See the spots above.
