Pro wrestlers have a knack for destroying furniture, and that was enough for Billy Corgan: he combines wrestling with home decor in this bizarre local TV ad for Resistance Pro, the wrestling company he started, and the Chicago-area furniture maker Walter E. Smithe. The Smashing Pumpkins frontman plays a game of in-ring musical chairs that devolves into an all-out brawl. Corgan hangs ringside as a manager, but pauses the action before a precious Walter E. Smithe chair is ruined. It's not Rock Bottom, but it sure is a Stone Cold Stunner.
