Anker Soundcore Outdoor Speaker | $77 | Amazon | Clip Coupon
I nervously stroll up to the campsite, blaring DJ Khalid from my brand new Anker Soundcore Motion Boom Outdoor Speaker with Titanium Drivers, firmly ensnared in my white-knuckled grip as it is. I desperately want to announce that I got it on sale for $77 after clipping the coupon at Amazon, but that seems a touch ham-fisted an introduction. As I approach, the mirthful emanations from that collection of friends and acquaintances quiets. The group, which is coincidentally arrayed before me in a semicircle, takes on the air of a panel of my adjudicators—justices of the beats—and the next uneasy moments feel like a lifetime as I wait to know: do they approve of my music selection?
Beads of sweat have just begun to form on my anxious brow when Chad, known to be the most outspoken music critic of the group, quickly moves. Perfectly in time with DJ Khalid’s sublime recounting of an evening spent in revelry, Chad’s hands go up.
And they stay there.
I have been accepted, my music taste validated, and the campsite erupts in gleeful ululation as I trot in and grab an ice cold brewski from Chad’s Yeti cooler. I tell them about this marvelous IPX7 waterproof speaker with a built-in handle, 24-hour playtime, and BassUp Technology, and the group coos in view of the speaker’s splendor. I offer to let Chad pair the speaker to his phone, using its Bluetooth 5.0 connection, and he replies firmly, “all you, bro.” That is how I met your mother.
