    I find this slightly unsettling yet fascinating. I'd like to get inside the mind of the person who thought this would make the stand more alluring.

    Looks like the pic was taken when the mic stand was attending a tea party.

    If only they'd put a cymbal on there...it could've been "crash on my couch".

    Where else is a drummer going to display his wares? Mom's basement is a little too sparse.

    lol...exactly.

    I'm imagining that the seller has anthropomorphized the stand, treating it like a child up for adoption:

    "Hey little guy, hold still while I set you gently on the couch. I know it's a bit higher-up than you're used to, but don't worry...I'm right here ready to catch you if you topple over.

    Wait a doggone minute! Did I see you peek in that mirror, you silly, vain stand. I'm tempted to tell whoever adopts you that you're more concerned with your own appearance than with holding cymbals securely."

    Well, I can appreciate that they want to show the mic stand in it's best light, lol. Some CL pic's are horrible.

    If I could have seen the reflection of the stand in the mirror, I'd have wanted it.

    Should have been captioned as "stand in front of mirror".

    On second thought, I think that picture might be indicative of something more sinister.

    I'm now imagining a very twisted, sadistic man who bought that couch and mirror and all the accoutrements specifically for the cymbal stand, and terrorizes his wife and kids if they try to sit on it.

    "Don't even THINK about sitting on Stand's couch! Don't even LOOK at it! It belongs to Stand!"

    Looks like someone's mother is selling off his stuff.

    What is the purplish thing, off to the left?

    And why is the mirror seemingly positioned there?

    ...or by the pool, with the tag line "buy this stand, and make a splash"

    It's like those Magic Eye images. If you don't see it pretty quickly, you probably never will.

    At least there's no one nude reflected in the mirror.
