La-Z-Boy's "Who Am I"
In "Who Am I?"�one of seven spots in a campaign--a garishly dressed man, replete with loud shirt and a giant medallion hanging from an ostentatious gold chain, walks into a La-Z-Boy furniture gallery. He is holding a silver motorcycle helmet. A female employee greets the prospective customer who is bewildered and confesses, "I don't know who I am anymore." She counters by inviting him to "try being yourself over here." The "over here" is a large red Laz-Z-Boy sofa. His disoriented state disappears once he sits down. He lets out a satisfied sigh, and says "hello old friend" to the couch. He then extends a slightly different greeting to the La-Z-Boy employee as if he's just noticed her for the first time. "Well, hello new friend," he says in a bit of a cheesy tone and a flirtatious manner. The tagline: "Comfort, it's what we do."
