Of all the "There's gotta be a better way!" ads out there, the Wraptastic stands apart as being particularly ridiculous. The ad itself employs the age old trick of having normal looking people encounter immense difficulties using a common household product. In this case, it's plastic wrap and aluminum foil.
Every time I see the ad for My Secret Root Touch-Up Spray, I end up giggling helplessly. Now first of all, I agree that your roots can certainly be a problem. I have been coloring my hair for about 25 years now. I know whereof they speak.
So many things are hilarious about this infomercial. Not least among them is the fact that I am totally sold on this item. I have made a mental note to keep an eye out for them at Walgreen's (where they often have end cap displays of "As Seen On TV" items on sale).
There is only one reason why anyone would buy a set of Orgreenic pans, and that is a fear of something which is unproven at best: that your kitchen pans can kill you. There are two main fears here. The first is from Teflon pans.
When I watched the Eggies infomercial, I was intrigued. I have my own chickens, you see, and it is virtually impossible to peel a hard-boiled egg if it is fresh (i.e. less than 2-3 weeks old).
If you buy an uncirculated commemorative coin in a special container, you can be assured that you have paid too much for it. From a financial or collectible standpoint, you would literally be better off buying actual Beanie Babies. (Why not save up your money and invest in the stock market? You can buy gold futures, if you like.)
I say this to let you know that I am not just talking out of my *%$@ for the rest of this post. No, I actually know what I am talking about when it comes to hanging pictures and artwork. We gave each of our clients two hooks (we called it “hanging hardware”) for their pictures that we specifically rated for the weight of the picture. They were designed to go into the drywall at an angle and then had a hook to hold the picture wire. You would never hang a picture from the top rail of the frame; it will eventually break.
Needless to say, I was surprised to see this do-hickey, Insta-Hang. I am channeling my best George Bush Sr. when I say, “Not gonna do it!" Do yourself a favor and run down to your local hardware super store and buy some proper hanging hardware. Do it right the first time.
