So I went surfing around, looking for post inspiration, and sometimes, even though I cannot stand The View, I find they have some good topics for discussion. And the other day, I found this. It’s a double-segment that they did (two videos) on some ‘As Seen On TV’ products. I watched the video set, and it prompted some questions for me….
1. Would you, or have you, ever buy a product because it was advertised in one of those infomercials? I think these were all on a particular channel; something similar to QVC, I’m thinking. That’s the impression I got.
2. Would you go for one of these particular products that the guy was profiling? (they’re listed above the videos, as well)
3. What the HECK was that last product???? Honestly, I kinda had the same look that Elisabeth Hasselbeck had on her face when I realized, like she did, exactly what that thing was supposed to be! And then I thought… what??? Why would you wear something like that, and dayum it looks uncomfortable!!
I have to be honest with you. I’m drawn to the ShoveIt lint roller. As the proud owner of a Golden Retriever, I’m also a very furry owner, because Goldens love to share. They can’t help it, it’s just their way of showing love. Consequently, I go through those stupid tape rollers, and rolls of duct tape, like there’s no tomorrow. It’s crazy. So if that lint roller is as good as it looks, I’m buying three. One for home, one for the truck, and one just to have as a spare. I’m keeping an eye at my Wal-Mart – they carry many of these products, so if it shows up, I might grab it, so I don’t have to pay the stupid shipping fees.
How about you? Are you an “As Seen On TV” shopper?
