Raise your hand if you thought we were going to head into the weekend with WalMart receiving a PR boost? Okay, now slap yourself with it because you're a lying piece of shit. I don't know much about trying to profit off tragedy, but I do know that the best way to do it probably isn't to depict said tragedy with your product. I mean, these not-so-serta imperfect sleepers actually make WalMart's wholesale soda towers look like the most honorary of tributes simply because they weren't strewn about the floor during a (humorous? I think that's what they were going for) reenactment of a terrorist attack.
I think the most surprising thing about this video is that THREE people voluntarily decided to be in it. Chances are they all come from the same family tree (which clearly isn't getting enough oxygen), but you would think just one of them would be less than thrilled to participate. You simply can't fake the enthusiasm every last person exuded while starring in a commercial that attempted to monetize the death of thousand upon thousands of innocent Americans. Almost leads you to believe that we're lucky that they didn't pull this stunt prior to the last 14 anniversaries of 9/11. If we are going to look on the bright side then the lack of intelligence required to conjure this up is also responsible for them needing so long to do so. Still, I can't help but be concerned for the day that one of them has to arrange the other's funeral. The burial will probably a secondary attraction to the mattress grave-yardsale. Oh well, at least they'll be able to sleep tight. There will be plenty of inventory left over when their business inevitably goes the way of their discount mattresses.
