LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:
By Jack Crowe
An Alabama roofing company announced their plan to throw in a free AR-15 with the purchase of a new roof in a ridiculous new Facebook ad featuring short shorts, Budweiser and whiskey.
In the Ad posted on July 4, Digital Roofing Innovations co-owner Zach Blenkinsopp calls recycling “stupid” after chugging foam from a shaken can of Budweiser. He then references President Donald Trump’s campaign slogan and explains he is providing the free rifle so that homeowners can protect their newly roofed homes.
“You’re gonna get you a free AR-15 rifle after we complete the roof. How’s that sound?” he says. “Donald Trump says, ‘make America great again.’ I say, ‘make America gun again.’”
The self-proclaimed Navy veteran may have been inspired by a Denver based roofing company that offered customers a similar deal in May.
In both cases the promotion is totally legal, as the businesses offer customers a voucher for the free weapon that can be cashed in once the customer passes the state mandated background check.
