5 WTF infomercial products that have us doing a double take

09 November 2015, 08:40Carmen Williams

You know the type. A overly excited host introduces his or her audience to a “revolutionary” new product that will change the way you see/do (insert mundane activity here) forever.

And if you call now, RIGHT NOW, they’ll even throw in a mini version of whatever crap they’re trying to sell you at NO EXTRA COST!

And we all know that most of these products aren’t that revolutionary, or even cool. But sometimes we watch the infomercials anyway. Especially if they’ve gone through all the trouble of getting a no longer popular celebrity to help endorse it.

But the 5 infomercials (as well as the products they’re advertising) below really take the cake for being so silly we’re not sure why they were even made.

Tiddy bear
Because calling it the Titty Bear would have been too silly? Instead of just adjusting your seatbelt to make it more comfortable, you can now drive around looking like a wacko with a stuffed animal on your chest.

Music vest
“Music vest is both elegant and versatile.” No. No it’s not. If anyone ever wore any of these and then got mocked for the rest of their lives, we hope you understand why.

Rejuvenique electric facial mask
Now we know how Mrs Voorhees (Jason from Friday the 13th) kept her skin looking so refreshed in between killing all those people at Camp Crystal Lake.

Potty putter
If you’re on the loo long enough to use this, you might want to consider eating more bran. Oh, and ew.


Better marriage blanket
Geez, if your (or your partner’s) farts are this bad, your colon may be haunted by the ghost of suppers past. You don’t need a fancy blanket. You need to stop eating beans.
