Seriously.. I have a terrible sleeping pattern and always go to bed much later than i should which of course is when infomercials are on, and most the time i'll watch them for a while cos they help me fall asleep.

Anyways, the way the present everything on infomercials is so stupidly fake and ridiculous and i can't believe people actually buy that shit.

So i ask you Pit.. Have any of you ever purchased products from an infomercial? If so, do tell of your stories.
And has anyone had a positive experience with infomercial products?

Bought this special paint brush where you put in the paint and it was meant to be amazing. Unfortunately it was rubbish

Was slightly tempted by that PX90 workout regime thing.

Then I stopped being an idiot and realised I could create my own regime for a lot cheaper.

Torrented it. It's just heavy cardio and plyometric exercises.

Ronco knives. Best purchase evar. "The weight of the knife alone cuts through the food!"
One of the handles started to break the other day, sent it back, new ones should be here soon. Love the lifetime guarantee.

No, I haven't, but I'm related to people who have. My cousin made my grandma get him some crappy juicer, used it once to make a vat of beet/carrot/orange/apples/celery/banana/godonlyknowswhatelse juice and left it in the fridge for a month. It was never used again.

my old house mates bought a slapchop and a magic bullet at the "As seen on TV Store"

slapchop is a joke, magic bullet is actually quite convenient

I got some stuff as a kit for christmas off of tv. It all sucked. I learned young.

I do find alot of those infomercials entertaining, in a train-wreck sorta way. And some of the stuff does look pretty interesting.

Never bought anything, but it´s all bull. You can´t gain muscle without proper exercise, and it´s gonna tire you out.

My dad does:
Magic Bullet: good
Mini Fryer thing: decent but who needs to fry all the time
That two compartment baking thing with the creepy lady that sells it: meh...

I bought one of those foot scrubber things as gift that stick to the shower floor...

oh and I have a quesadilla maker, I think that is off an informercial but bought it at macys...
#24
i always laugh my ass off with these things. 'only 299.9999999 (for a f****** mob!) order now, get an extra mob handle for free!'

would never buy that crap. having commercials on tv about it costs a lot of money, if they want to keep the price somewhat decent they have to cut costs on the product . resulting in crap overpriced product.

I bought the Save-A-Blade and it kinda works, not as good as it says though. My girlfriend bought those smooth-away things and said they don't work. The Swivel Sweeper is a piece of shit.

The Magic Bullet is the infomercial product to end all infomercial products. I bought 2. Those things are amazing.

But seriously, I love the Magic Bullet. Plus, the actual infomercials are funny as hell (in a good and bad way).

A few of my friends have snuggies. I have a copy of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

What stopped you from doing a normal pushup perfectly?

I don't know how any of you guys can turn down a good infomercial. You're just sitting there, looking at this awesome product that will make your life so much more convenient, and you think "how much will this cost though? $100? $200?" Then the announcer tells you it's fucking $19.95??? If you haven't already pissed yourself while picking up the phone to call, the motherfucker tells you HE'LL GIVE YOU ANOTHER FOR FUCKING FREE? FOR JUST SHIPPING AND HANDLING? HOW CAN YOU POSSIBLY SAY NO?


I love watching TV at 3am.

must be thinking of Insanity, P90X uses weights also. While I don't feel they are worth the money I think its worth torrenting Beachbody products because they do help and while you could make a similar regime, how likely are you to make it as hardcore as someone else would?

No, it isn't. It's a shitty, cheap version of better products that are easily available.
#39
I personaly have not, but my family has. All of them pretty much turned out to be crappy, or at least under-average. Magic Buller is pretty cool i guess, but you can get much better blenders. The OrbiTrek lasted pretty long, but i guess nobody used it much except my grandma.
The second grandma bought a shitload of excercise equpment and used every piece exactly once, so i cant test to the quality of those. They made great toys when i was a kid tho, because they could also function as spaceships.

My parents bought a Shamwow two years back.

It's a piece of shit. I say wow every time I use it.
