The One With Infomercials

Admit it, you've watched at least one infomercial in its entirety. Come on, don't be shy. You know who you are. Me? I've watched the entire 30-minute infomercial for the Chef Tony Miracle Blade Ultimate Chopper.

Yes, that's the man himself, looking a little...happy.

The infomercial stars Jenilee Harrison, who played Cindy Snow on Three's Company. I like that the Miracle Blade Chopper can chop up stuff like concrete. Jenilee is very thin...hopefully some of that Chef Tony magic wore off on her and she ate something she made with the chopper.

The worst part -- and this is really pathetic -- is that I've watched this particular infomercial more than once.

Another favorite is the Esteban guitar infomerical. Don't know who Esteban is. But hey, that's one cheap guitar! And it sounds great! When Esteban plays it. It would probably sound like crap if I strummed the strings.

So, fess up, which infomercials have you watched?

I watch the gym equipment ones. I can't remember the products, but the women who host these are worth watching. So are the models demonstrating the stuff.

Geez, I saw that Ronco Miracle Blade Ultimate Chopper infomercial too. I'm actually a longtime Ronco informecial fan (I'll "ohhh" and "ahhh" with the audience, but I'd never buy anything) and I have to admit, this one was better than the old spray-on hair bit.

You sat through it twice? Dude, I'll bet you have a thousand-yard stare, that look that says you've seen it all and have guts to spare (which rhymes, but hey, who cares?).

I am as guilty as you are. Of course, I work graveyard shift so Infomercials are not a rare thing around here. But I have fallen guilty to The Magic Bullet. And I hate to admit it but I even purchased it after seeing it on TV for a whole year!

I am a Ronco infomercial addict. Food Dehydrator, beefjerky maker, space saver vaccuum bag storage unit, all of them. Maybe I watch because I think I can act better. That must be it!.

I've thought long and hard, and I'm just about positive that I've never watched an entire infomercial. Ever. It's just not something that's going to capture my attention. I might have watched as much as 15 straight minutes of one. But that's it.

On the other hand, I have watched that Simpsons episode where Troy McClure and Dr. Nick Riviera pimp the Amazing Juice Loosener. Does that count?

I want the ultimate chopper. he he. That infomercial just makes you want to chop and crush everything. I also want that, ay, what's it called...the scunce steamer or something like that? Makes me want to go clean my toilet, which is something I normally leave to others. *L*

I am glad to see that there are other infomerciaholics. Frankly, I totally wish I had a few hundred to lay down on the Ionic Breeze...and I admit a guilty pleasure for that woman who hosts it.
