How did the "I fell down and can't get up" alarm not make this list?
How did they not include the Oxy Clean commercials? I know they went main stream but the product started out as an infomercial.
You know it is an infomercial when they greatly exaggerate the "problem" that their product is going to solve...
Sham WOW anybody?
If you want commercials just sign up for one of the social sites like FaceBook. They take your personal information, collate it, staple it, study it and then lambast you with the commercials they think your life style dictates. Just press "like", "like me on FaceBook", If you agree, just press "like". They will own you and your life, not to mention any content you would send to someone.
Back when cable came out, the magazines like Popular Science were saying, you'd never have to watch an ad again because you pay for what you're watching. That only lasted for about a minute when the networks found out they could make more money by adding a few "small" commercials. Now they add a few small shows to the commercials.
It may be time to revolt, plug the TV to the computer and sign up for Net Flick or some other movie channel or series. I was told they don't have commercials.
Laughed so hard the first time I saw the snuggie commercial. Loved it when the whole family wore them to a ball game!! hahaahahhaahhah
Ginsu knives, I have never cut myself on any other knife until I got a set of them for Christmas.
I hate those things.

They call those people, Pharisees.
Of course, he probably did it whilst hangin' with his Snuggie, after Magic Bullet-ing some exotic mushroom-brie pate, and reading the latest Trudeau "How to Make Millions While I'm In Exile in Switzerland, owing $35 million to the U.S., but you saps are still buying my books-good luck; the Nazis still have a butt-load of stuff here, so I feel right at home! - Did I mention it's three easy installments of $3.95?"
Yet people still buy this crap. Hey, anyone wanna get in on my "you can't miss this" offer?
You'd be INSANE to pass it up! Send me $10 for ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!
