When I make a run to The Home Depot, it’s usually because I need some 2x4s, drywall compound, or drill bits. So go figure that while I was shopping on their website for some completely unrelated hardware, this thing popped up on my Facebook page later in the day.
I’m not sure what it was about my shopping for PVC deck parts that made Home Depot’s ad retargeting vendor recommend this Elvis-inspired squirrel, but now I must have one for my yard. So I guess the technology is working properly. Somehow the algorithm knew that I would want one of these. Not only that, it must have known that I edit a website filled with strange and wonderful products, and would tell all of my readers about it.
Now you know an Elvis Squirrel exists too, and you want one too. For what I can only assume is the fear of the Presley estate’s lawyers, this thing is actually called “Elmer the Rock and Roll Squirrel,” but I think it’s pretty obvious from the haircut and sparkly jumpsuit who this is supposed to be. Elmer Prusbley, naturally.
You can get your hands on the king of rock and roll squirrels over at The Home Depot for $23.98.
