9/11-Themed Commercial Forces SA Company To Close

 Miracle Mattress in San Antonio has closed its doors indefinitely after a commercial they posted on Facebook went viral. The commercial’s gotten a lot of attention, and not the good kind.

The commercial promotes a Twin Tower sale for all mattresses being sold for the price of twins. Two men fall backward, yelling, into two tall piles of twin mattresses, and a woman screams and says, “We’ll never forget.”

Owner Mike Bonanno said in a written statement “We will be silent through the 9/11 Anniversary to avoid any further distractions from a day of recognition and remembrance for the victims and their families.  We take full responsibility for our actions and sincerely regret the hurt and pain caused by this disrespectful advertising campaign.”
