rocking chair marketing

My wife wants a rocking chair/glider, so naturally I was looking for fine furniture on Wal-Mart’s website when I came across this picture:

Let that sink in for a minute. This is the picture Wal-Mart (or the manufacturer of the chair) staged in an attempt to sell us this chair. And I will say this: the guy looks genuinely comfortable and happy, so we should be able to overlook his dirty shoes and his excessive jewelry and hisĀ absolutely bizarre marionette-glove thing.

(The second picture on Wal-Mart’s site tells the full tale, but I prefer the first one.)
