Their latest features one of the many reasons why a couch might need to be replaced and showcases the low prices they have for items such as lamps for $9.95, desks for $29.95 and, of course, couches for $79.95. As with previous commercials, the company aims for the viewer's funny-bone and features an elegant, if misbehaved, canine.
