Robert Dyas is trending because of this 👇Everyone’s getting affronted about a resurfaced spoof from a few years ago. Shocked RD don’t sell drills specifically for bisexuals tho 🤣🤣🤣🤣 https://t.co/48I1ItvJv0
The comedy duo Rhett and Link harmonise in the background of the clip (an element missing from the Robert Dyas ad) while various staff members talk to the camera about their own racial identity. And their love of furniture.
One man says: “Hi I’m Richard, aka Big Head. I work at the Red House and I’m Black.
“I like pumping iron and pumping furniture into people’s homes.”
His colleague then adds: “I’m Johnny, aka T-engage. I work at the Red House and I’m white.”
It goes on like this, with random customers confirming their own race and explaining how much they love the furniture shop while occasionally shaking Richard or Johnny’s hand.
Oh, and don’t forget Richard’s great line: “Look at this sofa. It’s perfect for a Black person. Or a white person.”
This line was then replicated in Robert Dyas’ ad, when one employee says: “Look at this Christmas tree. It’s perfect for a gay person or a straight person.”
Richard and Johnny even point out at the end that “Hispanic people” and “all people” buy furniture from their store, too.
It remains unclear why Robert Dyas decided to do their own take on the clip six years later, but it appears to have turned into a joke that doesn’t get old.
