This is a sponsored post with a COUPON at the end for CARPET. I was compensated for my time to participate in the parody video and to tell you about the hilarious day and my serious carpet envy. All opinions are my own.
Late this past summer, I received an email from Mohawk Flooring that I nearly deleted, thinking it was a gag. Would I be interested in participating in a parody video? No, nothing special to wear, they’ll provide choir robes.
Cautious-me would have asked a few more questions but impulsive-me said, “I love choir robes!” and replied, “Yes” in like a nano-second. I mean, I had just had a conversation with my BFF that I needed to do more video. This – I bemused – would qualify, right?
(If you’re not old enough to remember it, the 1976 hit Queen song that it’s based on is, “Somebody to Love.” To truly appreciate the fabulousness of the parody, watch Queen’s original version here.)
We must have been the talk of the neighborhood after spending quite some time literally hanging out of a moving mini van all A-Team style, fake yelling, while rocking burgundy choir robes and being chased by video cameras. It was like our own version of a suburban church reality show.
The day was filled with a LOT of laughter and it felt a little good-naughty to spill things all over the carpet for the sake of a great shot.
This hilarity all came about when the marketing minds from flooring giant Mohawk partnered up with the two geniuses behind Laughing Moms, Eden Morris and Alisha Merick to feature the launch of their newest carpet.
This dynamic duo is so creative when it comes to parody. Alisha writes the lyrics, Eden records the songs, and the result is pure genius. Plus they’re clearly the best of friends and they work really well together.
They even do much of their own editing. What a chore that must be with two – maybe more — full days of footage to sort through!
Maybe the funnest part of the day was getting to drop nasty stain-worthy messes all over the carpet – all so we could “showcase” the benefits of Mohawk Flooring’s SmartStrand Forever Clean carpet — the only carpet with built-in stain and soil resistance that never wears or washes off. Quite simply, it’s (drops voice an octave):
The toughest, easiest to clean carpet on the planet™
*Don’t try this at home.
What??? I don’t know about you, but I need to get me some of that. Our two-year old carpet is already making me regret it. But this… this I love.
SmartStrand Forever Clean carpet has Nanoloc spill protection (a new nanotechnology to protect the fiber) for quick and easy spill cleanup. It’s also environmentally friendly because it’s made in part from renewable resources.
I like that.
And… it’s pretty! Look at the carpet that went into this house!
