Recently, Christian sent in a few Ubiquitous Plastic Stool Shot!s, both of which take the genre to new levels. I’m only sharing one today – I don’t think y’all could handle both in one post. Filed under If You Build A Better Mouse Trap, I can’t help but applaud some Thai inventor’s attempt to upgrade the Ubiquitous Plastic Stool experience – for a mere $3 no less. It would have been nice if Christian translated the sign, though the concept of personalizing your Ubiquitous Plastic Stool in and of itself makes this photo.
I’m guessing this made for sale on TV wonder product is either a massage pad like those woven wooden bead seat covers they used to sell for cars, or a cooling pad (just pop in your freezer before use and then enjoy hours off cool fun!). I’d thought it could also be a mini bug zapper to keep your Ubiquitous Plastic Stool experience mosquito free, but discarded that idea thinking that resting your back on an electrical product might not be very safe . . . silly me, this is Thailand where respect for the dangers of a live wire is for pussies. And farang.
Though it’s probably a close race, I’d venture to guess the Ubiquitous Plastic Stool population in Thailand still out numbers cell phones. There’s an untapped market out there just waiting for someone to make millions off of. Walk through the 4th floor of MBK and you’ll be amazed – or disturbed – by the number of products on sale to help you pimp your phone. Even in Thailand’s collectivist culture, personalization is a billion dollar industry. It wouldn’t take much to start a Pimp My Stool craze. Justin Bieber is coming to Bangkok and a shot of him above the fold on the Post, posing on a pimped out Ubiquitous Plastic Stool would do the trick. If it was a Bug Zapper Ubiquitous Plastic Stool, the world might even be relieved of one of its major pests.
