I know what you’re thinking: “How can you just pick 3? TV-shop products are per definition stupid, otherwise they would have been sold via more respectable marketing such as radio or magazine ads or through attempted priming by subtle messages in a CD of children’s nursery rhymes”. Be that as it may, I have picked out 3 that makes the electric work-out products seem almost reasonable.

“Tiddy Bear”. Get your own fluffy tit protector today. Actually, get three so both of your children get their own titty bears.

“The Hawaii Chair”. HOW DOES THE WOMEN IN THIS VIDEO MANAGE TO TYPE STEADILY WHILE SITTING ON THIS SHIT? And am I the only one who suspect that this would cause odd spinal problems after using it for an entire workday?

“The TV-hat”. I’m not sure- I hope not- that this is a real product. I’m not sure I have much to add to what has already been said about this. On the other hand it is a good product in the sense that it will make the idiots easier to spot.

Child Safety ads from the 50ies! I would have made them more gory, if we coddle our kids they’ll just grow up into weak, frightened wussies instead of strong, emotionally damaged sociopaths! You need to look out for those damn piles of leaves!

Here’s a safety video from1962 as a bonus if you have the time to watch it. A bunch of kids in weird monkey masks decides to ride their bikes to the park, but do they make it?

Re-post dump! 😀

First off, and you might have seen this already, is the horrible sex advice from the magazine Cosmopolitan. With a history of advicing using grapes or ice-cubes during hand-jobs etc, you can’t expect much, but this time they out-did themselves. Check it out:

Get fruity! A mashed banana or peaches inserted in your vagina is a delightful invitation for him to whoosh his penis around in it! Once you climax, switch to 69 position for sweet afters. – Cosmopolitan Ultimate Sex Guide

Whoosh? … Have these people ever even seen a vagina? Whoever actually goes through with this advice deserves the yeast infection and lovely rash they’re undoubtely going to get. But hey, maybe yeast and mashed banana tastes great. I’m not a guy, but I have this lovely mental image of a man joining his girlfriend in bed, and his horrified expression as he discovers the yellow, gooey banana everywhere.

Here is something a bit nicer. It’s photographies from abandoned places in Detroit. I love abandoned buildings.

And here’s something to make you go *facepalm* again.

And then finally, another WTF Awesome commercial.

1. Top 48 ads that would never be allowed today.

These are my favorites out of the bunch:

Things I shouldn’t laugh about.

This video about texting while driving. Sorry, but it’s just so painfully obvious how they’re trying to manipulate the viewers emotions in this one (esp. with the dead baby).

(texting while driving still sucks though)

There’s also this video about heroin, with a lovely demonstration of a woman in a kitchen who really doesn’t know how to properly make an omelette. Again, an important issue, but how many people who seriously consider taking heroin will stop and reconsider because a girl smashed an egg (y’know, except if they’re actually afraid that she’s gonna show up at their doorstep with a raised frying pan if they use).

I have to say this one is still more ridiculous. It’s an anti-weed ad which features a talking dog. I’m not completely sure what the idea was behind this.
