I love infomercials. The best ones are the ones that make people who don't use their product look retarded.

A couple of my favorite examples are Slim Clip (The first five seconds- I love how the guy makes it seem he sat on a nail) and the hair remover product that shows someone shaving who has obviously never used a razor in their life.

Yeah, the Shamwow guy is annoying as hell. I don't know how anyone could have thought him selling anything was a good idea. I had a Magic Bullet for a while. It worked great. For about 2 weeks. Then the plastic rudders wore down and it was worthless. I suppose I could go buy some new ones, but I'll end up having to do that every 2 weeks. No thanks.

Sad as it is, he's perfect. Speaks clearly and loud enough to be heard, has energy, knows his script, and has the right look for someone selling a "new" product. And given the success of the product, kudos go to him and whoever hired him.

Pretty sure the headset part came from the in-store demos some sales companies do (the headset is a microphone so the crowd can hear them). Odds are someone said "why not try that on TV?" and boom, there you go.

righto...look at all the "terrible commercials" we remember and think about simply because they are bad.


the headset definitely came from the whole sales convention sales pitch thing. either way, he still looks silly.

This is the only Ronco Showtime oven infomercial I could find. Don't think I found one for the Miracle Blade or Food Dehydrator he supposedly invented and pitched.

I have the Showtime Rotisserie, it's rad. B-)

My dad got it for me like 4 or 5 years ago, I don't use it very often but it is pretty sweet. It's really good for small game hens...now that I think about it that's all I've ever made in it. :-b

Oh and my dad got me the knife set as well, for cheap knives they ain't bad. The Ronco Rocker is actually pretty cool. :-?

The reason you're gonna slap away everyday is because it's so easy to clean. :-b
