Random Thought for the Evening…

By Brian | April 17, 2006 | Share on Facebook

Flipping channels over the weekend and coming upon one of those infomercials, I was struck by this thought: What if one of these products was actually a real breakthrough?

I mean, what if the vaccum cleaner they’re touting actually IS a thousand times better than any other vaccum cleaner out there? What if the diet pill they’re going on about really DOES make you lose weight with no exercise or change in eating habits? We’d probably all ignore it, right? A really, really good idea might be lost forever in a sea of shlock.

Maybe we should nominate someone to buy one of everything, test it out, and report back to us. Any volunteers?

    Man oh man, are you just showing your East Coast blue state Ivy roots. Remember those ads for that dot-com that logged a few million orders in 30 seconds? That’s not too much of an exaggeration of what those infomercials do. Tens of thousands of units, not too surprising.

    Trust me, if any of them worked well, you’d hear about it a few weeks later in the NYT after they picked up a story from a stringer in Peoria.

    I hear those Oxy Wash cleanser things are pretty good, mainly because they use the industrial strength solvents that they’re scared to sell on supermarket shelves
