- "Twin towers" of twin mattresses. Get it?!
On Thursday, someone on Facebook shared this video with local TV station Kens5 showing what appears to be an advertisement from a Miracle Mattress store near Leon Valley announcing their "Twin Tower Sale." Buy any size mattress on 9/11, the ad says, and get a twin-mattress price. At the end of the ad, two guys tumble into and knock down twin towers comprised of twin mattresses just to underscore the point.
But the local Miracle Mattress ad might be the first time someone thought it would be a good idea to joke about 9/11 to move some product. Earlier this morning, after the first hints of what will likely be a wave of social media backlash over the stunt, the company took down the ad and issued an apology on its Facebook page.
