Where there are discounted cars to be sold, there are usually wacky, waving, inflatable, arm-flailing tube men getting potential customers pumped up about used car financing. Once known as Airdancers, these inflatable characters are beloved for their smiling mugs and great dance moves. Now you can bring that pure excitement to your pool with these incredible, much-needed floats.

Standing at over 6 feet tall, this red float is the perfect thing to get people to come to your pool. Costing only a fraction of what a real tube man might set you back, it's the perfect budget purchase of the summer. Al Harrington of Al Harrington's Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Men Emporium and Warehouse would be so proud!
