Let’s get something out of the way real quick: If this mattress were being promoted by some stock photo of two dudes snuggling up in a bed I wouldn’t give it a second look. Whatever, who cares? This isn’t that, though. This is a cartoon of two clearly naked, older, gay koalas, both of which are potentially magicians based on their absurd mustaches, and who genuinely look like they spent the night fucking each others’ tiny, grooveless brains out. You can’t tell me the one on the right doesn’t look like he had an orgasm in the last five minutes. All that’s covering his junk is a slim piece of bed sheet and, judging by the way he’s lounging and swilling that wine, he’s clearly extremely satisfied. And Dear God, the chest hair. Why!?!? WHAT IS THIS DRAWING!?! This looks like a storyboard panel for a Disney adaptation of Lemonparty.org.
The drawing is from an advertisement that Casper Mattresses sent out in an email blast, and, based on a cursory investigation of their website, these types of oddball drawings are standard marketing for them. Check out this one with Dracula, among other people.
Again, it’s not that this advertisement is showing two gay men (bears? (symbolism?)) sharing a mattress. It’s that it’s showing two obviously post-coital, gay, sentient koalas, who look like Pixar representations of Rollie Fingers and a physically fit Rip Taylor that just spent the night making love like Will Ferrell and Rachel Dratch in those SNL “LOV-UH” sketches. The artist who drew this is a weird, goofy, hilarious bastard. I’m still laughing every time I look at the drawing. Way to stand out, Casper Mattresses.
Anyway, enjoy the most hilariously weird thing you’ll see today..
