Ok well, this is a nice thread because every time I see an infomercial I can post a new video in here.

So anyway, to kick start it, I was watching this infomercial about the "Ab coaster" hosted by none other than Montel Williams. This dumb loser and his goons were promoting this machine as the end all be all for fitness & body composition enhancement. Hello????? It's an abdominal machine, not a multi gym, YOU STUPID FUCKS. Anyway, I'm also annoyed at the people who "get paid" or "volunteer" to be apart of the studio audience, what a bunch of lemmings.

That is going to get you the physique of your dreams? An ab machine? Some big jock moron was on it and goes:

"*gasp* I love it because I can work my abs and get cardio *gasp*"

What a stupid idiot.





Here's another GRADE-A piece of junk bullshit that I can't stand:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMWmxn0RYRk" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMWmxn0RYRk</a>

The "boxing box". What a piece of shit. If you leave a comment explaining how stupid it is, the creator and/or marketers will reply with: "well a speed bag is like a shake weight to me". I mean, how dumb do you have to be to wakeup one day and go:

"hm, why don't we put a really annoying and stupid box around a heavy bag".

Seriously, how the hell does that even enter someone's mind... What's even worse is these people try and sell it, look how messed up that kids punches get trying to punch around that piece of shit.

Why is USA full of so much of this bullshit? I'll tell you why, these dumb idiots can get anyone off the street to come vouch for their PIECE OF SHIT products. Even worse, they can get Ph.d's, sports scientists, coaches, pro athletes, etc to vouch for their piece of shit products.



SHOW ME THE MONEY!!!!!!!! seriously, show it and i'll vouch for your piece of shit product..

syke.

Not much else to say about the shake weight other than: "Will this help me jack off an elephant?" -- adarq

hahahaha. how could somebody even make a product like this. the commercial with the shake weight for the girls is even funnier, some of the girls on there are like slamming the thing into the side of their face and shit hahah

hahah ya i saw it, the funny thing though, for women this thing could actually make alot of them stronger (lololol)... plus it has more specificity to ADL (activities of daily living) for many of them :D

shakeweight for men though, that's just lame as f!$%!

 I think youre missing the point of that pvc pipe square box man.  Guys are showing up in the ring with them on every day now and putting it on the bag helps you get accomodated to punching around the bars to land your shots on them.  Since theyre obviously not going to quit wearing these things anytime soon it was obviously time for this guy to build one that goes on your heavy bags.

And I honestly have no idea how the models keep a straight face during the shakeweight commercial.  I dont care how much youre making, that shit has to funny when youre doing it and trying to look serious.
Relax.

LOL.. btw, check out X-ARM (XARM) or whatever, you'll be amazed and possibly disgusted.

haaaaahaaaa!!!  I just looked at that xarm shit on youtube wtf?  you called it, I was amazed when they were arm wrestling and the dude went for the flying arm bar.  Thought it might just be bad sportsmanship on his part.  Then when I realized that was a "sport", I was disgusted.  Who in the hell comes up with this shit? lol im still laughing so hard I can barely type this lol.
Relax.

 I guess he might market a package deal consisting of a rock and a barbell.  71 inches, 89 if you pull your legs up.
