Oh my, too awesome. But have you seen the SkyMaul?

What a great video. Boy did you hit the nail on the head.

I must say, as a copywriter you have to enjoy the copy written for each of those thingies...

The copywriters for that catalog must be red hot.

Anyway, great video. You said what many people think. :-)

so I'm not alone in keeping every copy of sky mall? Seriously if you want some fucked up inspiration by way of random shit designed for the monetarily endowed, this is the best thing in the world, and also one of the few "free" things left for us fliers to enjoy.

I bought a pair of bonsai trees/
I bought a big fake rock/
where I can hide my keys/
from everyone/
