(RNN) – Want to get your tailgate party into full swing? A hot new item is raising eyebrows and team spirit at sporting events all around the country – the portable stripper, or "dancer" pole.
"If you want to be the center of attention at any tailgate, you bring the pole," the company website proclaims. "The Hitch Stage has a 3 foot by 3 foot platform that floats approximately five feet from the ground and has approximately seven feet of usable pole."
With a myriad of tailgating products already on the market that appeal to the sort of sports fans who arrive at the stadium hours before kickoff, equipped with grills, TV mounts, tables and kegerators, Keith Scheinbert, CEO of Platinum Stages, said his product is sure to make you stand out at any tailgate party.
"The pole is a great way to make a scene," he said.
The pole is not limited to electrifying tailgating parties - it can make a pretty big impression just about anywhere else you want to be the center of attention. And you don't have to wear stiletto heels and a thong to do it, either.
Many amateur pole dancers realize it's a good workout and do their dancing in gym clothes or - in some cases - their favorite team getup.
The product description boasts that the pole "can be attached to the ball hitch of any truck or SUV."
The tailgate accessory can support up to 200 pounds, and even breaks down into two pieces for easy storage in the car.
The pole is made of stainless steel and is being sold for $399, but for those who'd like brass, it's a $100 upgrade.
The California company manufactures products ranging from poles to sleek leather furniture and sky-high footwear.
