This is a commercial you cannot unsee

FILE - In this Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001 file photo, plumes of smoke rise from the World Trade Center buildings in New York. The Empire State building is seen in the foreground. For years, a handful of current and former American officials have been urging President Barrack Obama to release secret files that they believe document links between the government of Saudi Arabia and the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Other officials, including the executive director of the 9-11 commission, have said the classified documents don’t prove that the Saudi government knew about or financed the attacks_and that making them public would fuel bogus conspiracy theories.

SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS (NEWS10) – A mattress store ad is shocking the entire country.

Miracle Mattress in San Antonio is receiving backlash for their ad that promotes their 9/11 day sale.

In the commercial, mattresses are stacked up in the background, to resemble the World Trade Center buildings. Then two men knock them down as the woman in front screams.

She finishes the ad by saying “We’ll never forget,” in a sarcastic tone.

See it for yourself:

The mattress store is now apologizing for the ad.

The owner claims it was “tasteless and an affront to the men and women who lost their lives on 9/11.”
