We came across a press release in our mailbox this morning that intrigued us to the point of actually checking out the site. It's for a company named GGBailey, and they've got a site allowing you to create custom floor mats for your car. Sounds simple enough, and the concept of being able to make our own mat wasn't the worst idea on earth — until we found out the company's also the home to the "official floor mat" for MTV's "Pimp My Ride." We didn't just move on to a new web page, we actually closed the web browser just to make sure none of the filth touched us. But, we did make a screen capture in order to allow you to make fun of them with reckless abandon. Full press release after the jump.
A Gift to be Enjoyed Every Time You Drive
NEW YORK, May 31 / — The latest in automotive accessories this year are specialty car mats that you design exclusively from
There are over 240 million vehicles on the road in the U.S. and every car needs mats. You can design your own luxury-weight custom car and trunk mats from any combination of carpet, edging, heelpads, embroidery and logo styles and colors.
GG Bailey car mats are a custom-fit for your vehicle. You can design complementary car mat colors for your interior or bright vibrant colors that make a statement, like leopard or pink car mats.
