Your favorite infomercials?

I have so many, but I really enjoyed GLH-9.

Tony Little and his Gazelle. The man drives me crazy, but when I see him on that thing with his legs and arms flailing wildly, I can't turn away. It may be one of the funniest things I've seen in my life. I've literally watched the whole hour at least 10 times.

Favorite infomercial?

That's like asking what your favorite root canal was.

I like the infomercial for that device you put on your ear to give you super-hearing. Those people define a whole new level of ******.

I have a little 4-pound Pomeranian who suddenly developed a habit of spontaneously bursting into a full fledged howl a couple of times each day. I was mystified until I happened to notice that he peered intently at the TV in between howls... it was this commercial!

There is something about the frequencies that they use in the soundtrack of that commercial that drives him out of his mind. So naturally I TIVO'd it to play whenever my friends and I need a good chuckle.

I always laugh at this one. We apparently have a whole generation of people who have never heard of a chamois and don't know you can buy one for like $2.

I'm thinking of a different one (one where the guy is new in the apartment building and two lovely women are talking about him but he isn't supposed to hear them). however, the one you posted is hilarious. My favorite part is when the guy is sitting and "dancing"....good stuff!
