I was driving through Downtown Las Vegas when I passed this. It was one of those double-take moments. To me, furniture stores are synonymous with eye-catching advertisements and displays, but this was a new one. No need to hire real people to flip signs anymore; you can sex up a mechanical mannequin and have it do the dirty work for you. Of course, bikini models aren’t the only ones who can sell love seats. There were a couple of mannequins dressed in full business attire, too.
