Furniture Fix DR Spot With "Sumo Wrestlers" - LOLZ

As some of you might know I am somewhat obsessed with the "Creative" assets of TV dr spots.   I mean these spots are usually so epically priceless in their snake oil salesmanship that I kinda can't stop being amused.

The last one I focused on was Pajama Jeans.  The name says it all.    But now I have a new one that is making me giggle.   FURNITURE FIX!

FURNITURE FIX! FURNITURE FIX!

So what do I love about this products DR spots?  Fake Sumo Wrestlers.   lolz.   Check it out.   


I just wish I was a fly on the wall for this shoot.

DIRECTOR
"Ok ok ok lets get sumo wrestlers to show how tough our product is!"

PRODUCER
"Great idea bob but we would have to fly them in from japan and thats expensive!"

DIRECTOR
"Ok well what if we got 2 fat guys and told people they were sumo wrestlers"

PRODUCER
"Great idea bob but will they be believable as sumo wrestlers?!??"

DIRECTOR
"Fair point lets put on eye liner so they have eyes that are squinty looking to make them appear asian and give them the sumo hair buns"

PRODUCER
"GREAT IDEA!   One of the guys is black but with that eye liner I can't tell anymore!"



haha God Bless Furniture Fix and their Sumo Wrestlers.  PRICELESS!

FURNITURE FIX FURNITURE FIX FURNITURE FIX!

  1. Actually I'm pretty sure they are both real sumo wrestlers and they are Americans. One is Musashimaru (http://photosumo.blogspot.com/2011/01/musashimaru-koyo-photo-pic.html) and the other looks like Manny Yarborough (http://wiki.ask.com/Emmanuel_Yarborough).

    I was trying to confirm that when I found your blog. I couldn't find any info anywhere. It seems that neither of them want to take credit for doing the ad. ;)
