Blast From The Past

Remember those old Samsonite luggage commercials where they’d show their stuff getting horribly abused and talk about how it could take the worst kind of pounding?

Well, I was browsing around on YouTube recently and ran across something that reminded me of them. It’s a clip of baggage handlers at O’hare airport loading luggage onto a plane. If you’ve ever wondered why it is that your luggage looks the way it does after flying somewhere then you really need to take a look at this video clip.

Seems that there was a really good reason for Samsonite to go to all that trouble to make sure their luggage could take a major pounding! Honestly, I think the folks at Samsonite could use a clip like this in a new commercial just to show that “luggage abuse” really does happen!
