Does this "product" satisfy a need?
How about this one?
That is the stupidest thing I've ever seen.
I only bought 3.
I just gave my wife a hug and saved a bundle.
They are going in completely the wrong direction anyway.
If it wasn't a device to show love and affection to someone who you are fond of by giving them a hug and instead was a device which punches your enemies in the face, then I think that I'd be interested in buying one.
I want the sheep one!
Do not use while driving or operating machinery. :rofl:
What I like about the commercials is they show someone having a difficult time doing some simple activity without the product. For example, they'll have a woman in a kitchen trying to cut some tomatoes and having a really hard time doing it; cutting her fingers and smashing the tomato instead of cutting it (because the knife isn't sharp enough). Tomato juice is everywhere and she has a distraught look on her dirty face.
Then they show her cutting the tomato with the Handy Dandy Tomato Cutter. Suddenly she's smiling, the kitchen is spotless and her husband comes in and gives her a kiss. Who wouldn't want that?
Not for anything, but: that Snazzy Sleeper looks a lot like a burqa. Is it possible then, that this is a middle eastern influence (kind of like how hookahs have come back into style, since we invaded Iraq)? Really, I suspect the manufacturer is trying to ride the coattails of the Snuggie.
The hug thing is kind of cute, but it takes up a lot of space. Eventually, it might just turn into another albatross, at my house.
Mentos (although I don't dislike them) I would have to say were the most blatantly absurd commercial product that I am aware of. Really, I think the subliminal message therein, was always like having them somehow gives you license to jerk people around. "Oh, don't mind me urinating into your tuba--CAUSE I'VE GOT MENTOS!" (*Give the thumbs up, with Mentos at hand*). "Mentos, the freshmaker!"
I went with the burqa thought too, except I guess, you would have to smell your way around.
Me three, also with the burqa association.
(Hookahs are back in style ? How can anyone use one and not look like like this dude
It's what I've heard (I don't actually smoke). But I do love the oldies...
Maybe if they played this song during their infomercials.

quite tolerant, hooper!
I don't think they ever went out of style, at least not in the middle east.
The one that's been driving me nuts for the past while is the touchless soap dispenser. Supposedly, it prevents you from picking up all of those nasty germs from the plunger. Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't you wash your hands after touching the soap dispenser?
I for one hate public bathrooms (I was once a custodian), and consider them a crime against humanity.
I immediately thought Burqa too. Though, it looks even shorter than standard airplane blankets, which already leave me choosing whether to pull the blanket up to my chin or keep my feet warm (and I'm short). I'd be really annoyed by something that just left my nose sticking out (those eye masks do nothing for me...tried them once on an overseas flight and wound up with them on the top of my head holding my hair in a really goofy poof by the time I woke up). On the plus side, they look like they could be turned around and made into a super-hero cape for a Halloween costume. :uhh:
A super-hero cape with sheep? OK, you're cool with that!
