A company called LevelUp is targeting a very specific demographic with its next product: namely, people who like Rock Band and ottomans.
While some may call this Rock Band-themed ottoman a sad indictment of gaming’s obsession with pointless accessories for E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G, others with closets bursting with fake plastic instruments will see it as a godsend.
Either way, it is what it is, and that is an ottoman deliberately designed to hold instruments used for the Rock Bands and Guitar Heros of this world. Such is the anticipated demand for this, LevelUp is releasing two versions: ‘Back in Black’ for $89.99 (plain black) and ‘Skulls and Snakes’ for $179.99 (as seen above).
Each edition will store two guitars under the lid using Velcro grips, while a dismantled drum kit can sit in the bottom, along with drumsticks and mikes (both of which also have dedicated compartments). Yeesh.
There are probably more cost-effective ways to keep your home clutter-free, but if you fancy either of these, you’ll find the ‘Snakes and Skulls’ version at JC Penney, and the ‘Back in Black’ number at Costco.
