BEIJING, CHINA - JULY 06: Chinese shoppers sleep on a sofa in the showroom of the IKEA store on July 6, 2014 in Beijing, China. Of the world's ten biggest Ikea stores, 8 of them are in China to cater to the country's growing middle class. The stores are designed with extra room displays given the tendency for customers to make a visit an all-day affair. Store management does not discourage shoppers from sleeping on Ikea furniture, even marking them with signs inviting customers to try them out. (Photo by Kevin Frayer/Getty Images)

When it comes to local advertising, whether it be on television, social media, print, or even radio, it’s always seemed to me that the most creative and fun folks are the people in the car business and furniture salesmen. So when I stumbled across some of these videos for old furniture places having sales, I couldn’t resist sharing them with you.

I get it. Sales are a reason for excitement. You’re hoping tons of people come into your store that normally wouldn’t due to budgetary constraints. So it’s understandable that as a local owner of a furniture store with it’s own tight budget, you would try and get the most out of a commercial.

Lets just say these guys got the most bang for their buck when it came to their television ads. While I don’t know how the sales went, I would sure buy from all of them! Well almost almost all of them. In this case we have saved the worst for last. So awful is the last commercial on this list, I wouldn’t be shocked to find out it was just a gag in bad taste. Unfortunately, I don’t think it was.
