Black Friday may be less than two days away, but for the last several weeks, commercials for retail's biggest day have been dominating the TV, YouTube channels and beyond.

From Justin Bieber making grown men scream at Macy's to Kohl's rendition of Rebecca Black's Friday, this year's Black Friday ads are quite impressive.

Since Nov. 15, the Bieber-Macy ad has been viewed by more than 1.3 million people on Macy's YouTube channel. Target's Christmas Champ -- back in her Target red tracksuit and pearls -- has gained more than 46,000 views.

While the Black Friday commercials are not up to Superbowl standards, it's obvious that major retail companies have spent countless hours (and probably millions of dollars) creating these 30-second gems.

Here are the five best ads of Black Friday 2011.

Justin Bieber, Macy's

Yo I'm going to Macy's Black Friday sale, Bieber says to his driver, unleashing the familiar scream of a fangirl. Except, the scream is coming from his driver -- a grown man. The 30-second scream fest is has its comedic moments, and reminds buyers that proceeds from his perfume line Someday will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Cue more screams.

Christmas Champ, Target

You know what happens when you're a champion? Endorsements. Right now I'm in commercials for the Target 2-Day Sale. I'm still waiting for my shoe deal, according to the Target Christmas Champ's official Twitter profile. With more than 13,000 followers on Twitter, the popularity of Christmas Champ is no joke. This year, the Target Mascot is back, complete with her pearls, red tracksuit, and all the training in the world.

Rebecca Black Friday, Kohl's

As if the original Rebecca Black Friday song wasn't enough, Kohl's has jumped on the Friday bandwagon and created a rendition of the YouTube hit.

Name the Aisle, Walmart

Knowing your aisles is an important feature to have on Black Friday, according to this couple seen training in their car.

Peace on Earth, QVC

The stress and chaos of Black Friday are nowhere to be found in this smooth (and adorable) Black Friday commercial from QVC.

Happy Thanksgiving! And Happy Black Friday.
