It’s hard to imagine anything more grotesque than running a “9/11 sale.” Unless of course it’s forming twin towers out of mattresses, the product being sold, and filming an ad of them being toppled in dramatic fashion.
According to the description on YouTube:
A San Antonio, TX mattress company aired a “Twin Tower Sale” commercial days before the 15th anniversary of the Islamic terror attack that killed nearly 3,000 people.
The Miracle Mattress commercial opens with three people standing in front of two stacks of mattresses, representing the twin towers.
A woman sends two men “flying” into the stacks of mattresses, causing them to yell as they fall over.
At the end of the video the woman is heard saying, “We will never forget.”
I very much doubt that I will either, though neither of the males clown in the video shouted “Allahu Akbar” as he plunged into the pile of mattresses, but maybe I shouldn’t be giving them ideas for next year.
Over at Hot Air, Allahpundit notes that the owner of the business, who apparently stars in the commercial, has taken to Facebookto to “beg for forgiveness”:
This may be the most tasteless exploitation of one of America’s darkest times, but it is not the first. Last September, an “artist” created a sculpture of twin towers that featured a burned Bible, Torah, and Quran for an art competition. Happily, the work was banned. Earlier last year, a cake designed by an Austrian baker that was meant to symbolize state of politics in his country borrowed on the 9/11 theme.
