    Hypnotic, I Swear

    I've spent hours upon hours in my life watching infomercials. I know they're all scams but there's something about them, something that's almost hypnotic... I really wish sometimes that it wasn't all scams, because some of them are actually really good ideas.

    Poetry In Motion.

    Let's face it, these things are so well-crafted to SELL SELL SELL! There's the guy interviewing the "inventor." This guy acts SO surprised at everything the inventor says: "You mean it will get out ketchup stains???? AND it will get out grass stains...

    In My Own Defense

    My sleep cycle was screwed, and I found myself wide awake at *mumble* o'clock in the morning.  It was for what amounted to a revolving caddy to store plastic storage stuff on.I stared, mesmerized.  The colors, the shapes, the spinning...My whole life could be fixed if I just...

    The Food Saver II

    Oh man, the things you watch when you're doped up on flu meds. It was some kind of vacuum sealer thing. All I remember is that they used it to seal up a wedding dress in a plastic bag. Oh, and that it was much better to make your own TV dinners and seal them for later, because...

    I Actually Recorded It.....

    You know the infomercial about the Magic Bullet? Well for some odd reason I enjoyed it, so much to the fact that I recorded it on my VCR. (I never had a DVR) I never liked an infomercial as much as I liked that one but after seeing it over and over i began to skip to another...

    It Was Boring

    When I get up early, like at 4 or 5 in the morning, there's nothing else to do while you are half sleeping. I only do it when I am half conscious, they give me a headache otherwise.  I don't usually remember what they are about.  It's usually about appliances...

    Something About S'mores

    Back when I was a younger child, I would pull all-nighters watching infomercials. I totally loved the Magic Bullet, Food Saver, that Ronco rotisserie thing (though that show got repetitive), the one for Slick 50 engine additive (lol, I remember it touting the money saved on gas...

    Hypnotizing

    I can't help it.  These infomercials just suck me in and kidnap my brain and I'm done for hours.  It hasn't happened in awhile, but I remember one day years ago, I must have watched an informercial about knives all afternoon.  My best friend was with me. ...

    Not Just Watched...

    When I was younger I would be up late watching those things. When you're tired, that crap starts looking pretty cool. So the next day I would try to convince my parents they should get those things. I ended up watching some of them so much that I could recite a good chunk of them...
