    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. ...

    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...

    Something About S'mores

    I had to stay at my grandparents house a couple years ago. I could'nt sleep, so I turned on the television. Nothing good was on, so I had to watch an infomercial. This lady had some device you could put s'mores on. You push down on the top to smush it together and then put it in...

    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.

    It's Always When Your Sick.

    So your sick one day staying home from school/work, and you feel like ****. Your laying on the couch with your tissues and chicken noodle soup by your side and you think, "I know, i'll turn on the tv, it'll distract me." Flipping through the channels you'll find some mediocre...

    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...

    Many Of Them

    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...

    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...
