Who needs a couch when you have a Sumo?

No, I did not import a humongous wrestler from Japan to replace my couch... I'm talking about the Sumo Omni Chair I just got in the mail. These guys actually contacted me in early October and I really wanted to give them a plug back then, but I was too preoccupied with all of the Halloween madness. Now that it's over with and I have the chair in my possession, I can give 'em the attention that they really deserve.

You wanna have a pillow fight? BRING IT ON. I WILL DESTROY YOU.

We all love bean bag chairs right? Of course we do. They were the greatest places to plant your ass for a few hours back in the day, but what about when you get a lil' older? Yeah, those bean bag chairs somehow get quickly replaced by grown-up furniture from IKEA 'n what have you, but what fun is that? Sumo has thankfully come to the rescue with the "Porsche" of bean bag chairs in the form of the Omni. This thing is a massive bead-filled lounge chair/pillow, and as you can see, it can fit my entire body on it with room to spare. I'm a fairly tall guy at 6'3", so I'm definitely impressed that there's more than enough space on it for me - plus it can take on a variety of shapes for whatever position you want to sit in.

Now, if you're like me, you've destroyed quite a few bean bag chairs in your time whenever a "chair fight" broke out or you simply scraped it up against the edge of a table. That won't be the case with this thing though, because it's totally tear-proof, so feel free to beat the hell out of it. It's a chair, it's a pillow... it's even a punching bag. And the same goes for their little Otto seat, which also makes for a great foot rest when combined with the Omni.

The one thing I do have a problem with is that they chose the wrong person to model the Omni on their site. I'm clearly the better choice, don't you think?

I admit it, Rog is a better model than I am!


Want me to model your product? Talk to my agent, bitches.

No contest if you ask me.

I am also hereby making a formal declaration of WAR to the Newgrounds staff. You see, my chums over there also got some of these Sumo Omni chairs, and I can't think of a more television-broadcast-worthy event than our two sites duking it out in a no holds barred, every man for himself giant Sumo chair-pillow fight. It could be bloody, it could result in the deaths of a few, it could even be erotic... er wait, ignore that last part. What I do know is that it would make for some damned good TV. I've got my Sumo Omni and Otto... and I'm ready for WAR. They say these things are stain proof, but I wanna put it to the test when the blood of every Newgrounds staff member is splattered upon my Omni. Lock the doors to your office if you like, Newgrounds, they won't be able to withstand the brute force of the Sumo Omni when it comes crashing down upon them! And while I'm destroying them with my bean-filled might, I'll make sure that the radio is blasting Billy Idol's new "Happy Holidays" album so that's the last thing they ever hear.

All I need is a plane ticket to Philadelphia and this will happen. Somebody please make this happen. Now.

Thanks again to Sumo for my new chair / weapon of choice. If you're interested in purchasing one of these, they're having a Christmas sale right now, so I suggest getting 'em when you can save an extra 20 bux off the normal price.

You're too heavily clothed to be a fitting "model", my friend.

Not that I would wanna see you wearing fewer clothes... because I wouldn't... you know, that's just not right.

Ahhh, shit.

*twitch* I hate awesome things that are way out of my price range. Like the PS3. Or electricity. :p

That was perhaps the most amusing blog I've read (Well, besides the Billy Idol one. And at least 5-6 others that can't come to mind.).

If I wasn't getting my car fixed and had a higher-paying job, I'd buy two of 'em.


Aks (Guest) on 11/28/2006 6:41 pm

Dude holy crap. I want one of these things. But the big question is.. Is it really friggin comfy or no? Oh yeah, nice beard Rog.


Mikel (Guest) on 11/28/2006 7:14 pm

They must be giving out Sumo Omni chairs to every notable webmaster in exchange for a plug, because I've seen quite a few sites plugging them.


Shayna (Guest) on 11/28/2006 7:38 pm

Damn, if only I wasn't a poor college student...ARGH! (Pust that chair on 'list of things to get when I get a real job')


Doctor dumbass (Guest) on 11/28/2006 9:39 pm

Good Luck, -ROG-! PS: I recently read the "About Us" section and found a game called Abodo's Big Adventure. It was really fun to play and I was just wondering why it wasn't in the Games section.


James (Guest) on 11/28/2006 10:01 pm

Go get em' ROG!

Hit below the belt!


Steve (Guest) on 11/28/2006 10:15 pm

Lets see...

Its $682.20 round trip.

I'll do it.

If you want something better, try, same thing only these beanbags have BEDS inside them. They are small or huge and very comfortable. Plus, its a friggen BED!


Guy (Guest) on 11/29/2006 11:20 am

God DAMN that looks COMFY!

Awfully expensive though...Hmm...

If I can shoplift one of those, I shall become the shoplifting God. All I have to do is figure out how to hide one of those under a t-shirt. And find a physical store selling them. And get it home using only a bicycle.


Steve (Guest) on 11/29/2006 9:26 pm

I gotta take the train to Philly and watch this battle royal.
You could sell tickets to this madness.


Bradley (Guest) on 11/30/2006 5:09 am

Holy crap, you're 6'3?! I figured you'd be shorter for some reason, I guess. I'm 5'9 or so. Then again, my big head makes me look like a mascot.


Angryhydralisk (Guest) on 11/30/2006 8:24 am

Apparently, stupid kids are breaking windows and tvs with their Wii Nunchuck controllers as said by Yahoo! News.

A most excellent prediction you made, -RoG-! (Air guitar)
