Kmart's latest Internet ad is gaining a lot of attention.

The ad, dubbed "Show Your Joe," begins with six men in a bell choir performing a Christmas song. The men then break out in a rendition of Jingle Bells, minus the bells.

Let's just say their Joe Boxer shorts are about the only thing that keeps the ad PG. Well, maybe PG-13.

Not everyone, however, is laughing at the spot. The Huffington Post reports the commercial has resulted in numerous critiques from fans on Kmart's Facebook page. Words like "disgusting" and "distasteful" are splattered on the comment section.
