Tasteless Advertising in ‘Honor’ of 9/11

You see ads for local stores spark outrage and go viral for just that. Something offensive or just a little too off the cuff. So far we’ve only seen one make it viral for the 15th anniversary of 9/11. A mattress store in San Antonio, offering all mattresses at twin mattress prices. Check it out.


The store claims it wasn’t meant to cause a ruckus. But was their intention to get a little heat with it? Something that probably was airing on their local stations a handful of times and on their Facebook page. This is arguably exactly what they wanted to happen. We are all talking about it, one little ad. So long as their mattress business (I didn’t know these were still a thing) doesn’t go under do to boycotts. It’s getting an abundance of free advertising.
