A Navy veteran who owns a roofing company in Alabama is causing a mass liberal meltdown with a new ultra-patriotic commercial in which he has an epic offer for his new customers. Now, this beer-drinking, gun-toting, cigar-smoking, hard-working, American badass has sent thousands of snowflakes running for their safe-space as he reminds us that “it’s very cool to love your country.”
According to local news source KRON4, Zach Blenkinsopp of Decatur, Alabama, recently created a DIY commercial for his company Digital Roofing Innovations. The controversial video was the result of an advertising budget shortage but has quickly gone viral on social media. Take a look at why so many liberals are having a complete meltdown after Blenkinsopp makes his epic offer to customers.
“If you sign up for a new room with Digital Roofing Innovations you are going to get you a free AR-15 rifle after we complete the roof,” said Blenkinsopp in the 1-minute video ad that he and his co-owner Chris McGuire created that has the liberal world in a fit. That’s a pretty great deal. If you pay their company to do your roof — you can get a free AR-15 rifle.
Blenkinsopp, a Navy veteran, is already getting a barrage of negative feedback from his video ad, but he doesn’t care. The two co-owners of the roofing company want the video to be a bit “over-the-top” as they try to appeal to Alabama natives who tend to take a lot of pride in their right to bear arms.
The start-up roofing company was launched a year ago by Blenkinsopp and McGuire, and they decided to drum up more business during the 4th of July holiday with this patriotic ad, according to the Miami Herald. “We don’t have a huge budget right now for marketing, so what can we do that’s super cheap that might go viral and this was it,” McGuire said.
“I’m not here to talk to you about roofing…rifle… I’m here to talk to you about AR-15 rifles if you sign up for a new roof with digital roofing innovations, you are going to get you a free AR-15 rifle after we complete the roof,” Blenkinsopp tells customers in the video while shirtless and wearing American flag socks, shorts, and cowboy boots. Blenkinsopp wasn’t shy about explaining his secret to wardrobe success. “So I went to Walmart and found a women’s size 11 for those shorts and you know they had some cool little props,” he laughed.
For all the haters who immediately jumped the shark and tried to accuse the roofing company owners of doing something illegal; buying a roof and getting a free AR-15 is perfectly legal in Alabama. Once your roof is complete, you get a voucher to take down to the firearms store where you still undergo the same background check and process as anyone else buying a gun.
In a genius move, McGuire explains how he intentionally posted his ad to several liberal Facebook groups to make his ad go viral. “I posted this in extremely conservative Facebook groups and extremely liberal Facebook groups because I knew it would invoke emotion,” McGuire said. The responses were epic and included everything from liberal haters to patriot-loving single women telling Blenkinsopp that they are single.
Despite all of the hate that the ad received online, Blenkinsopp and his partner stood their ground. “People are very concern with us promoting violence, drinking with firearms…to kind of clear that up, nobody was drinking while shooting guns,” McGuire explained. “You get to choose what you believe in and if people don’t like it then we don’t care, we’re going to continue to do our business and take care of our customers,” Blenkinsopp added.
Since putting their patriotic ad out there, Blenkinsopp and McGuire have received calls from all over the country and as far away as Australia. Their small roofing start-up has now secured two commercial roofing opportunities and several residential contracts. What can I say? These two American patriots are living the dream and showing all the haters out there what hard work, creativity, and the 2nd Amendment are all about.
