I spent the weekend at Sank’s cabin with my employees for a team building, ice fishing weekend. It was during this event that we spent quite a bit of time eating (Sank makes some mean Bambi meatballs!), drinking, and watching campy crap on TV such as Svengoolie. It was during a replay of The Wolfman that we saw a commercial for “The Pocket Hose” which, when your mind is in the gutter, is absolutely hilarious.
However hilarious, I had to wonder whether anyone has ever bought anything they saw on TV. While I don’t remember buying anything I’ve seen on TV direct from the informercial, I believe we have ended up with a variety of products over the years which were either bought in brick and mortar stores later or recreations of those sold elsewhere. After watching this particular spot all I ended up doing was laughing, hysterically while making juvenile jokes, not buying.
So what about you? Have you ever bought anything from TV informercials directly? What about after the fact? What is your favorite “As Seen on TV” item? Whatever you have to say about this one go ahead and vote on the sidebar and the comment on below as I’d love to hear what you have to say.
