‘Big Lebowski’ Rug Totally Ties the Room Together
Looking for the perfect gift for 'The Big Lebowski' fan in your life who already owns a lovingly ratty robe and a lifetime supply of White Russians? How about a rug featuring the smiling, blissed-out face of the Dude?
Etsy seller OldTymeNotions is selling a "one-of-a-kind" (their words), 36"-by-30" colorful rug for $800. Not exactly cheap, but considering everything the Dude and his pals went though in the movie, it really is kind of a steal.
According to OldTymeNotions, the rug (yes, as a sales pitch, they quote the Dude's famous line, "That rug really tied the room together," from the 1998 movie) is an "original design . . . and 19 colors of acrylic yarn give the Dude the depth of a photograph."
Also, more impressively, more than "220 hours were put into its creation."
There are a couple other photos of the rug over on the seller's site, if you'd like to take a closer look at this piece of awesome. There's even one featuring somebody standing on it, just to give you perspective of its size. Because, like the Dude, there's no way we'd be able to figure out what 36"-by-30" is, man.
