This is such a bizarre little video. The narration is sexist and the editing does not make sense. As it is, the awful comments by the narrators makes me wonder if someone dubbed over a old video. On the other hand, style and way of thinking has changed so drastically over the decades that past ways of life would seem completely alien to us.
I honestly imagined these folks to put cardboard boxes on their heads and pull off a classic 80's robot dance move. How bizarre is this concept? In order to lose weight, you have to don a pair of silver pants and voila! All your extra flabby bits just disappear, probably in a traumatized fright. And just in case you visit a sparsely crowded gym and are thus unable to convince enough folks that you are a bit of loony, the infomercial suggests that you wear these at all times. Better yet, somewhere along the way they promise you a matching shirt as well. Excuse me, but if I happen to glance across the road and see Mrs. EarTrumpet watering her begonias in a flashy silver outfit, I would be sure to have a word or two with her family.
