San Antonio Mattress Store Airs Commercial Mocking 9/11

(Dallas News) – In the video posted to Facebook, Miracle Mattress manager Cherise Bonanno says that there’s no better way to remember the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks than the sale, which offers any size mattress for the price of a twin mattress. Two employees stand in front of a pair of towers of mattresses and an American flag.

At the end of the video, which has since been removed from the store’s Facebook page, Bonanno swings her arms and the employees tumble into the mattress towers, knocking them over.

Bonanno shrieks, then turns to the camera and says, “We’ll never forget.”


Its flat out mind bottling how something like this still gets made.  15 years later and its still too soon.

Someone thought up this idea, planned it all out, went through what I assume is multiple approvals up a chain of command, filmed it, edited and watched it then posted it to Facebook.  And at NO point during that entire process did a single person say, Hey maybe this isnt such a good idea?

Im all for a good joke, or a funny commercial, this was neither.  Almost every comedian will tell you that no subject is off limits for a joke.  Feel like 9/11 just might be that one exception to the rule.  Yet people still try things like this…..bananas.
