Everything about this Is amazing. Thanks for sharing it.
Amazing video ! The idea with those mop-slippers is hilarious, I would like to use a pair of those myself. Even the dog had them on. You made my day with this post. Thank you very much.

What a happnin’ little video. I am very familiar, (almost to the point of obsession at one point), with ‘American Look’. What a great tribute. Love the song too. I’ll be putting that one on the I-pod ASAP. Can’t wai to show this to my wife.
Can anyone identify the chair and ottoman in the picture? I have the ottoman, but it has no label and have been trying to track it down for ages
The classic cobra phone is a great mid-century detail! So glad they included it in the video.
An observation I made some time ago myself :-)
