Butt Drugs

Made nationally famous via a funny TV spot. They have a sizable "Buttique" that sells Butt Drugs merchandise, and an old-fashioned soda fountain that sells Buttshakes. As the tag line goes, "Free Parking in the Rear."

The local commercial, made back in 2010, has a song that unfortunately never leaves your brain. It became popular planet-wide through social media exposure. To its credit, Butt Drugs -- around since 1952 -- has embraced its unexpected, weird notoriety.
