Infomercial Fails Set To The Music Of Morrissey Is A Goth’s Dream Come True

Morrissey-Informercial-Mashup
Your Existential Crisis, In Video Form

When you pair every mundane annoyance in life — from spilled glasses of wine to outrageous foot odor — with The Smiths song, “Please Let Me Get What I Want,” you have achieved the epitome of the goth aesthetic. This video pretty much sums up my whole world view. [Happy Place]

Watch This: World’s Worst Kitchen Gadget Squeezes Out Egg Erections

Make it stop!

Tired of the same old fried or scrambled eggs? Wish you could enjoy your favorite breakfast food in a more phallic shape? Then you should definitely check out a new kitchen gadget called the “Rollie Eggmaster.” Just crack your eggs into the tube-shaped contraption, and a couple minutes later it slowly pushes out a cooked egg boner. According to the infomercial, it’s “perfect for the office!” Lord help us. [YouTube]

Hot Booties are here, people! They are soooo much more than just slippers. They are pure comfort and therapy for your feet. Just put the Hot Booties in the Booty Bag, pop them in the microwave for 60 seconds and enjoy an hour of moist heat … on your feet. If Hot Booties are indeed a real product, which they appear to be, they are going to look so good with my Pajama Jeans or my Forever Lazy. Oooh! I can probably accessorize with my Snazzy Napper. Just what we need. More products that kill our collective sex drive. [Buzzfeed]

A Really Creepy Way To Eat Your Hot Dog

I already dislike hot dogs, but the Happy Hot Dog Man brings my distaste to a whole new level. These kind of antics are fine for Play-Doh, but not for wieners. I do not want my hot dog to have arms, legs, eyes, the ability to dance, or wear outfits. I have serious concerns about the child (or adult) who complains that the standard hot dog is “not fun enough to eat.” [The Daily What] Keep reading »

I Want A SlobStopper

Oh, how I love infomercials. This one for the “Slobstopper” tries to sell you an oversized bib for $14.95. “Has this ever happened to you?” Actually, no. Please tell me this one is a joke. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Cami Secret Is One They Never Should Have Let Out Of The Box

Behold the Cami Secret! A handkerchief that hooks on to your bra so when you wear a low-cut top, your lecherous male co-workers won’t spontaneously motorboard you. (Ohmigosh, you have that problem too?!) It won’t ruin your clothes with safety pins, and it eliminates the need for those annoying camisoles you have to wear underneath some shirts. In short, this is a bib for your boobs. And guess what! It’s adjustable so that you can slide it up and down to choose how much boob crack you want to show off. Our guess: Cami Secret was invented by a frustrated and disturbed mom with an overly developed teenage daughter. [YouTube] Keep reading »

I Don’t Care, I Want A Shake Weight


I gotta be honest, y’all. I kind of want to try the Shake Weight. Sure, it makes your arms look like they’re giving a fairly vigorous handy, but is that really so embarrassing if you’re doing it in the privacy of your own home while wearing workout clothes? “Saturday Night Live” hilariously spoofed the, uh, sexual nature of the product’s infomercial, but that didn’t do much to dissuade my interest. My upper arms need some work. Seriously, Shake Weight people — send me one to test out! Keep reading »

Brace Yourselves For The “Marshmallow Soft” Hoodie-Footie

You can learn a lot from this video. For example, even though I’m the Style Editor here at The Frisky, I was not aware that “footed PHs for women are all the rage” right now. Really!? Good to know, good to know. In combining slippers, a hoodie and a blanket, the new Hoodie-Footie Snuggle Suit rips a page right out of the ever-popular Snuggie handbook by insisting that blankets are hazardous, inconvenient and completely restrict your movement, which as we all know by now, is so sadly true. But this time, there are also economic reasons why you simply must slip into one, as they insist that these puppies will totally cut down your heating bills! With the Hoodie-Footie priced at a whopping $49.95, you’ll probably need all that extra cash anyway. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Goodbye Snuggie, Hello Necky


Watch out Snuggie. There’s a new random must-have infomercial product on everyone’s wish list this holiday season: The Necky. It’s for everyone who loves to spend money on random items, or the truly lazy who can’t figure out how to properly tie a scarf. For the low price of $9.95, two of these scarves with bibs can be yours in a variety of colors and patterns, including “Designer Leopard.” Or maybe this can be a two-part present, to make it a Snuggie and Necky holiday season where no one gets cold ever?

More Products For Obscenely Lazy People!


We may be in the middle of a recession, but companies keep churning out products for people who are too lazy to wipe their own butts. Take, for example, the Shoedini. I have no idea if this is a new product or an old standby, but it’s the first I’ve seen of it. If bending over to take off your shoes requires too much time and effort that could be spent sitting on your fat butt watching infomercials and eating chicken wings, then the Shoedini is for you. I suppose this product would be acceptable for someone dealing with back problems, like our own dear Simcha, who has been laid up at home for almost two months after a botched spinal tap and can’t bend over, but she’s Simcha, goddamnit. She’s special. [$14.99, Shoedini via Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
