Value City Furniture Commercials -- When You Can't Get Any Other Job

I don't know how big a chain Value City Furniture is, but if you're in the DC area you've probably seen the ads for this company -- dorky white guys dancing dorkily to dorky early '90s dance music. The most recent commercial, which is eye-bleeding bad, isn't on YouTube, but I found one from New Years.

(WARNING: Turn down the volume.)



And here's an extended version of their President's Day commercial:



And finally, here's an older one that's actually kinda funny:



But I have to wonder, how desperate does an actor need to be to do one of these commercials?

I didn't realize that Value City had gone out of business two years ago. The furniture store, for some reason, still lives.

They aren't as bad as the Senate Insurance DC area commercials.
