Summit Up 5-3-11: Where it looks like we’ve got Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in our garage

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that never stops being amazed by the marketing ingenuity of the American people. No matter how much crap is out there for us to buy, rest assured there are people busily thinking of new crap. If we had to guess, we’d say that, on any given day, more than 2,745 different new crap entities are being finalized for introduction to the marketplace. This could be anything from a new jet fighter engine (which we buy indirectly through the Pentagon and our federal income taxes) to things like Pajama Jeans and Snuggies, which we buy when we’re sitting on the couch, bored, and realize we have a little bit of extra room on our Visa card.

Anyway, the point is this: Don’t you think it’s time you got rid of that boooorrring white or tan or brown garage door and gussied it up with, say, a giant mural of a horse in a barn? As you can see from this photo here, some company at can give you a horse and pony for your garage – you just have to unroll them out of a box and stick ’em up there and WHAMMO! Everyone thinks you’ve got a horse. (Or, rather, everyone who’s intoxicated or clueless enough not to notice it’s, y’know, a big mural-ish thing.) If horses aren’t your thing, you can get one that makes it look like you’ve got a hot rod or even an aircraft in your garage (which you can now refer to as “the hangar”).

We think the Venn diagram to describe the market for this kind of thing would show an overlap with the kind of guys who buy those dangling Truck Nutz for their pickup trucks. But we could be wrong. Maybe you can also get a string quartet for the garage door, for the more erudite homeowner looking to spice things up.

So these things are $229 and up, depending on the size of your garage door, so you’ll have to weigh that against other pressing needs – such as the latest Shake Weights set or the Secret Glow Tanning Glove.

Or you can buy a new bike or something. It’s up to you.

We out.
