Because exploiting people’s fear of a crushing death is a great way to sell products, a Japanese furniture manufacturer is introducing this $5,600 earthquake-proof ‘Wood Luck’ bed. It has a specially treated cedar frame that can support up to 65 tons of pressure and keep you alive long enough to starve to death provided the earthquake happens in your sleep. If it happens in the shower you’re f***ed. Man, these people have got it all figured out. Because if the bed turns out to not actually be earthquake-proof guess who’s not gonna be around to complain? My God they must have gone to a good business school.
Hit the jump for a video of the bed just sitting there not supporting shit. I DEMAND PROOF.
