The tyrant’s choice

I’m not sure why Tyrant is still a thing. The show runs in circles for a while now, even though several key characters have (possibly) died over the last few episodes alone, and there seems to be no real development in terms of character building or story. It’s astounding how the same people could create shows like Hatufim or Homeland and then produce such garbage without ever thinking “no, wait, this ist just awful”.

I spotted this little curiosity in episode 4 of the current third season. As you might have imagined even without watching the show (and trust me, you aren’t missing much!), it’s about the ruling family of fictional Arabic country Abbuddin. Of course, this family lives in a palace, and when it comes to the interior design, there’s nothing cheap here:

Yeah, it’s just as one would expect: expensive carpets, heavy furniture, tasteful interior design all around the palace. You know, these guys don’t just shop their furniture at IKEA!

Hey, wait a second! That thing feels quite out of place here .. I wonder …

Yep, exactly: that’s DOKUMENT, a waste paper basket I happen to own myself.

At just $4.99 (or $3.99 for IKEA Family members) this basket is the obvious choice for every home, no matter if it’s just a single room appartment or a 300 room palace!
