Do you ever wake up in a groggy haze, unsure of your surroundings and wishing a loaded shotgun were within easy reach? Well then, call now to order The Back-Up, a shotgun rack for the side of your bed. The instant-classic TV spot, above, promises, “It’s the smartest money you’ll spend in your life.” I’m not sure that opinion would be shared by my pregnant wife, who often wakes up for a snack or a bathroom break. For some reason, I’ve also found myself imagining The Back-Up being added to other commercials. It would sure put a different spin on this golden oldie by Folgers. Alas, it’s “not intended for use in homes with children.” Via Consumerist.
