I have never laughed this hard. When he kind of bugs his eyes out one point in the video, I absolutely doubled over. With over five million hits, no flea market in Alabama has ever gotten so much attention. Needless to say this guy needs to be hired for a whole lot more advertising. Maybe he could find a way to bring back nearby Normandale Shopping Center in the process.
View of Montgomery Flea Market and Capitol Plaza Shopping Center from Google Street View. It's just like a mini mall!
Montgomery has an interesting and largely depressing retail history, so it was great to see a positive light cast on a largely faded retail corridor on the southeast side of the city. Of course, the popularity of this video was obviously a perfect fit for a parody. Family Guy spinoff "The Cleveland Show" had to get in on the action, having character Cleveland advertise for a flea market in fictional Steuben. This version was pretty funny itself.
