What product would you do an informercial for?

Informercials. Love em, hate em, but I always find myself sucked into watching them. I still watch the Magic Bullet Blender infomercial when it's on and I own the darn thing. In fact, I burned one out and had to get a new one that's how much I love it. So why do I still watch the informercial? Weird. I was watching the informercial for some sort of cooking thing that I cannot even describe when I got to thinking that would be a good MyLot discussion. I would like to be in an informercial for that blender and also for the Caruso hairsetter (which was the first item I ever purchased from an infomercial). Also ProActiv solution. So tell me, do you watch informercials? What are some of the informercial products that you wish you could be in the informercial for? What non-informercial product do you love that you wish you could tell everyone about? Here's your chance!

Philosophy skin care products (NOT their make up)... Skindecent (I would love that!)... Seven for All Mankind Jeans (everyone should feel the love of these jeans) ... memory foam mattress pads and pillows (everyone should have them) ... and Victoria's Secret, whoo hoo. Note there is nothing domestic on the list. The only thing I care about of my George Foreman Grill!

Oh, I watched an informercial product (i.e. ProActiv Solution). I also purchased a "whitening teeth" product (but it doesn't work at all). ProActiv Solution is really great! It works to reduce my acnes. But now, I don't see informecials anymore because most of them are broadcasted in the early morning.

I watch informercials sometimes. I like the ones about cooking, and exercise equiptment. So I think I would like to do an informercial on these two subjects. I have never bought anything from an informercial though.

Oh my gosh, I got the Caruso hairsetter for Christmas when I was younger. You could roll your hair with steam and steam your face. Oh wow, I don't know how long I used it or what happened to it. I wouldn't mind one of those now. When I'm up late at night and it isn't anything on I do lay and watch infomercials. Some of them are neat and new inventions, things I've never even heard of before.

ProActiv is probably the infomercial I see the most. I don't particularly like infomercials, but if I can't sleep at night, they do occupy the time well, LOL. I think if I were to do an infomercial it would be for the excercise equipment Chuck Norris and Christie Brinkley frequently hawk on informercials. Why? Because if I were using it, it would mean I was fit!

well, I try not to watch infomercials, since to me they are just disguised commercials to suck you into buying buying buying. of course there could be useful things to learn from watching some of these - some interesting recipes perhaps? but for jewellery and the like, think the lighting and camera angle etc serves to hype up the object and once you buy it you might think it looks much tinier and less pretty! of course, it could be worse and they could show you something different from what they send you! personally I'd not want to do an informerical for any product. I'd rather meet a friend and show her the product personally, so there's a sense of touch in all of that. :)
