Inflatable Handsome

Okay, back to the Sunset House '69 catalog gift ideas. The previous posts were all about me, now it's time to find some gifts for YOU! And who among you, ladies, isn't just dying for a handsome inflatable man to take with you on your endless excursions along the open highways and bi-ways? He's so real looking that for safety sake he will most certainly scare away the baddies. ALSO: He will go practically ANYWHERE you want him to go will zero lip-- he's a GREAT listener-- doesn't eat much-- has that "new raft" smell that everyone loves so much, --and you know he's TONS of fun to blow-up! Look at that smile... spruce up those miles with an inflatable dude this xmas, NOW!

Text slyly informs you he doesn't come with a hat. I expect they also avoided mentioning the other important parts he's missing for the ladies on the go, and it's something you probably can't just "pop on!"

I'd love to see this in real life -- I suspect it's probably as disappointing as everything else in these ads. No real arms, cylindrical, no legs, and absolutely not fooling anybody, at any speed, and at any distance, hat, or no hat.

Brian, I sense from your own sly text comment that you maybe have had a blow-up doll experience in the past? Please do NOT share any additional details-- thank whew!

...but hey, he's flesh-colored! So he literally matches every single person on Earth (well, not counting burn victims). And I have my suspicions about how he's supposed to be used as such a great gag, too. I guess "life-like" could be interpreted as a euphemism for "anatomically correct"?

I guess we'll just have to wait for a lady to chime in on this one...

I heard huge dead stocks of these were bought by various airlines in the late 70's to be used as automatic pilots after some basic training.

I recall seeing something like this on TV ten years ago, basically it was about a type of mannequin that you put in your house and seat in a chair, so if a burglar looked in they are tricked into seeing someone at home and not rob the house (this was before home invasions made the news.) One police department dressed one up as a police officer and placed it in a police car near a busy intersection. The sight of a patrolman in a car caused drivers to obey the speed limit, not make illegal turns, run red lights, etc.

The future version would be a 3-D hologram of a guy or gal riding with you (or a supermodel or batman or superman or spiderman or Jason or Frddie Kruger etc. as a riding companion for Halloween.)

Considering the odd "TONS of fun to blow up!" line, I think that the blow-up nozzle was in an "interesting" place!

You know it!
