Air bag inflatable mannekin

In a hurry?

BUNGCO is well aware of inflatable mannikins; sleazy and otherwise. But it is hard to get one inflated in a hurry - much puffing, pumping or the like. What if you need one NOW?

For example, a guest is peeking into your medicine cabinet to see if you have any Viagra left, and you want Mr T to leap out and put a stop to all that. Your questionable associates are coming up the drive and you need it to appear that a policeman is in your house, questioning you. You are parked illegally while you run in to a business establishment and need it to seem that someone is behind the wheel. Someone formidable. Or you have been tasked with setting up a bachelor party and have discovered how expensive it is to hire a live person to jump out of a cake.

Throw down the air bag inflatable manikin and vwalla! - there appears a humanoid in the size and shape to fit your need. The airbag could also be triggered by a pull string (as in the medicine cabinet or mailbox model).

What, you may ask, becomes of the manikin after use? Some choose to keep them around as they gently deflate with time and age. But why go with a whimper when you can go with a bang? For only slightly more you can get the Booster: after a delay which you set or trigger manually, the manikin inflates beyond tolerance and explodes!

       [+] This fills a much-needed gap in the market.

       It will fill it very quickly.

       Reusable would indeed be a nice perk. After serving its function, a tiny vacuum could deflate the dummy back to its bag state.

       I am thinking of a starter version along the lines of the classic spring snake that jumps out of a can when opened. Except this would be a body part and it would simply protrude from the can.

       I suggest hiring a few of the neighborhood punks to test them in the middle of roadways, insta-pedestrian style.

       Mine's in the post already. A winner [+]

       A relatively standard CO2 cartridge, such as is used in air guns, might suffice for this purpose.
Vernon, Feb 04 2016
  

       This would be handy at your desk in case you get a sneak attack by Camping Carl.

       Every time I see someone being forced to type something like "CO2" on here, I feel immensely sad and want there to be a <sub> tag, but there just isn't. Woe is me!

       Sort of like a plastic human slam. Bamm, there you go. Ok, I like.

       You are so lucky I can't remember the URL of that company in Japan who knock out the high end "dolls" with silicone implants and all..cherrygirl or summat.

       4 for Camp Teacup: 1 Burly Orderly for the medicine cabinet, 2 Regulation Good Ol' Boys for the gun case and the pickup, 1 Gangster for the roadster.
Sgt Teacup, Feb 07 2016
  

       We are sorry that the new hire misread your order, Sgt. But consider: the Burlesque Orderly might be just as good or better?

       You are missing out on the entire Halloween market. A few of these lining the walkway activated by motion-sensor would be just the ticket.
