On the face of it, it may sound like an odd trend, but these days it’s not unfamiliar for a supermarket chair to go viral.
That’s right, somehow the British supermarkets keep producing knock-out chairs that shoppers can’t get enough of. First there was Aldi’s pink velvet scalloped armchair (which still sells out every time it comes back into stock), then there was the brand’s hanging egg chair, which shoppers continue to go crazy for.
And now, Asda has come up trumps with its £12 Moon Chairs, which are big, round inflatable chairs suitable for outdoor use.
TikToker @katie.ann.l shared a video of the purple version of the Asda moon chair a couple weeks ago, in which she wrote: ‘This is everyone’s sign to go to Asda and get the £12 inflatable outdoor moon chairs. Life changing!!’
The video quickly accumulated a huge 2.5 million views and over 327k likes, which caused the Asda moon chair to completely sell out in all three colours – purple, red and blue.
Thankfully, due to popular demand, Asda has brought the moon chairs back into stock and all three colours are available to buy online again right now. However, considering 2.5 million people have shown interest in the chairs already, we wouldn’t hang about if you want to get one (or several) for yourself!
Katie put out a follow up video to answer some of the questions she was getting about the chair, which included her revealing that it does not come with a pump (so you will need to get one of these separately to blow it up if you don’t already have one) and that feels like ‘crushed velvet’ to touch.
An Asda spokesperson said: ‘For those who have been eagerly anticipating the re-launch of our infamous moon chair, we’re delighted that customers will be able to snap up the popular product from Monday. Whether it’s an occasion to relax indoors or out, this TikTok hit is the perfect addition to switch off, unwind, and enjoy the summer sunshine…all for just £12!’
