Family Guy also parodies these pretty well
I can honestly say I've never seen one of these products in real life. But people MUST be buying like crazy. These ads have been around forever, and if you "call right now" they throw a ton of product at you with free shipping for (what seems to be) a reasonable price. Clearly business is good.
So in order to curb my curiosity, if you have ever ordered from an infomercial, please post a comment here and let me know. If you live in the Chicago area, I might stop over to see the greenness of your grass/how well your vacuum works/how perfect your push-up is.
Remember in "Napoleon Dynamite" when Uncle Rico offers to throw in the model ship if the couple buy his tupperware? And the lady turns to her husband and goes "I wannnt thaaat". And then Uncle Rico has the husband try to break the tupperware bowl. And the guy can't, and looks ashamed of himself. Anyways, I think its people like that who buy half their belongings from infomercials. They aren't quite rednecks, because rednecks wouldn't have the credit card or initiative to order something over the phone. But those small town people, who get way too into reality shows and invite all their friends over to show them their mail order vacuum that fits anywhere, and can easily clean up the low-fat macaroon crumbs Deborah just spilled everywhere.
my apartment has the clapper, the shamwow, and the magic bullet. you also have the iron gym
