It’s not that often that I see a commercial and think to myself “man, that is a product that I really need to try out”, but I’ve found just a product. Even more embarrassing, it’s from an infomercial starring a young man who quite clearly has a fondness for crystal meth.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you ShamWow! It’s the last cleaning cloth you’ll ever need to buy (for 10 years), it’s made in Germany (so you know it’s good) and if you’re spending $20 a month on paper towels (which means going through a roll about every 4 hours), then it’s just the cleaning product you need. But don’t take MY word for it, just sit back and enjoy the actual infomercial in all its meth-fueled glory (courtesy of YouTube):
Can it really soak up that much liquid with the greatest of ease? Will it really last 10 years and function as a not-disgusting bathmat? These are questions that are just begging to be answered… by me… with photos and video… and on this blog. Oh yes, they are.
There are also questions that I just can’t answer, like if the ShamWow is so great, and the people glowing about it love it so much, then why do they have brand new, unopened ShamWows in their hands? Shouldn’t they be perfectly happy with their ShamWows they already have at home? (Note that the first-person testimonials aren’t in this YouTube version, but are in the version airing on TV)
So, now all I need to do is check some local “As Seen on TV” type stores to see if they carry these delightful little thingamajigs or else order a set online and then abuse them like they’ve never been abused before your delight and wonderment. I’m only thinking of you, my readers, and not the hours of enjoyment it would give me to see if the ShamWow really lives up to the hype. Are you following me here, camera guy?
