my infomercial part 2

with 6 comments

shamwowhave you seen this guy?  he’s like billy mays’ arch-enemy, except creepier.  i don’t get where they find these guys.  can’t they find someone a little less… intense?  what’s weird about this guy is he says words that don’t even have to do with the product and he wears this fast food drive in headset that makes you think that he’s talking to the camera in between his jobs at drive thru windows.

i saw billy mays on the tonight show one night and i had to watch it cause i wanted to see what he was like in real life.  actually, he’s just as intense in real life as he is on the infomercial.  he was actually pushing a new product on the show.  it was funny because dana carvey was on the show as well and he was totally making fun of him.  hilarious!

so what would my next informercial look like?  hmmm…

are you sick and tired of people not taking you seriously?

sick of people walking all over you?

introducing intense eyebrows!!

these one-time use adhesive eyebrows are easy to use.  just stick them over your existing eyebrows and bend them in an intense pose.

need to look angry?             serious?              suspicious?             crazy? angry-eyebrows




don’t have eyebrows?  bam!  instant eyebrows!  and when you’re done, you can wrap them around your pencil as a pencil grip.  they come in a variety of colors: black, dark white, and dark black.

normally one pair of these go for 49.99, but you can get them for 3 payments of 24.99.  that’s right!  you’re paying us more for the same product you would get somewhere else.  but with the first payment, you’ll think you’re paying less.

but if you call now in the next 20 minutes, cause you know we can’t do this all day (as the creepy guy with the drive in headset would say), we’ll add one replacement eyebrow in blond.  not one pair, but one eyebrow.  mix-and-match!  amaze your friends.  make sure they don’t take no crap from you.
