A classic commercial from 1983, this honest, fun video finished with a bit of charming silliness. Speaking with a sincere acknowledgement of the facts, the Empire Man states that even their carpeting doesn’t last forever. That’s not a sentiment often expressed in the world of commerce. It’s refreshing in its frankness. The message was simple: Just remember that Empire has quality carpeting at a fair price and delivers in three or four days. He finished with a warning to remember that “or the Boogieman will getcha!” That added light touch of fun underscored Empire’s policy of simple, honest, entertaining commercials.
