This is the craziest furniture store commercial you've ever seen

Posted By on Wed, Jul 16, 2014 at 9:42 AM

Ridiculous local TV commercials are nothing new and, more often than not, provide an incredible amount of unintentional comedy. But now, Hotel Furniture Liquidators in New Orleans East has raised the bar for gonzo commercials with the mind-melting piece above.

The video stars Sparkle Johnson, an androgynous and racially ambiguous performer rapping about couches and lamps to the tune of Big Freedia's "Azz Everywhere" while the "White Girl Twerk Team" shake and jiggle to the beat. Somehow, it's even more ridiculous than how I just described it, thou it's apparently struck a chord and has been viewed over 30,000 times in under two weeks.

Even more mind-boggling is how the ridiculousness of the commercial contrasts with the store's generic website (though their Facebook page skews towards irreverent). However, this isn't Sparkle Johnson's first ad for the store and a quick YouTube search reveals a history of completely insane videos. This one, though, is the most popular by a mile and should see a quick induction in the Crazy Local Commercial Hall of Fame.
