Becky Queen of Carpets Goes Out of Business, But Her Cray-Cray Commercials Will Live On

Posted By on Tue, Jun 12, 2012 at 9:00 AM

After 58 years in business, Becky "Queen of Carpets" Rothman has abruptly called it quits (KSDK Channel 5 broke the news Monday night). While Daily RFT tries to find out why, we'll tide you over with some of her awesomely horrible commercials from the 90s. (Want more? Check out her YouTube channel, or our recent feature on other schlocky old ads by Schweig Engel, Steve Mizerany, Slyman Bros. and Uncle Leonard).
