There’s something special about the word “dang.” It’s downright satisfying to say, since it’s one of the nastiest-sounding words you can safely utter in polite company. It was used to great effect in Roger Miller’s signature song “Dang Me,” and it’s now employed in the advertising slogan for an unlikely product, the Diva Dangler Earring Frame.
Do you live in a household with loud, obnoxious, annoying people, and sometimes wish you lived alone? If so, the next best thing to your own Fortress of Solitude is a pair of myZone Wireless Headphones. They work on all TVs and install in seconds. Just plug the base unit into the audio out jacks on your TV, strap on the myZones, and zone out in a personal audio/video paradise with your favorite reality shows, shopping channels, sitcom marathons, late-night talk fests, and detective dramas. The heavily-padded foam earpieces of your myZone Headphones will cancel out noise from your boorish housemates, smoke alarms, or police swat teams at your door. You won’t even know others exist unless they walk in front of the TV. Need to go the bathroom and afraid you’ll miss hearing about Lindsay Lohan’s latest court date? No worries, because myZone Headphones have a range of up to 100 feet.
I don’t want to admit I snore at decibel levels that violate our local anti-noise ordinance, but my wife is threatening to move into the spare bedroom if I can’t find a solution. If your spouse is equally tired of your nightly impression of a 747 at takeoff, you might want to consider ZQuiet, an anti-snoring mouthpiece that claims to work instantly and solve snoring problems for 90% of those who try it. Lose the snoring, save a marriage! Here’s where to order ZQuiet.
Shirley Templeis unarguably the biggest child film star of all time. At the height of her popularity in the 1930s, she made dozens of shorts and features, and her name and likeness were used to sell dolls, dishes, soap, books, cereal and even Packard automobiles. Her films were shown widely on TV in the 1950s and 60s, so most baby boomers grew up with Shirley just like their parents.
Some believe that eggs are nature’s perfect food, although the Mayo Clinic recommends you limit your eggy intake due to their high cholesterol content. Hard boiling is one of the easiest ways to prepare this nutritious and delicious protein source, and it’s so easy that even kids can easily learn how to heat water in a pan and boil up a batch. But the makers of Eggies believe they have a better method. Ditch Mother Nature’s container and boil your egg in an Eggies plastic shell. There’s no more messy peeling, and you get flat-bottomed uniformly shaped hard-boiled eggs that stand up on their own. Too bad Eggies don’t come in colors, or they’d be perfect for Easter. Here’s where to buy.
With a name like Colon Flow, I think you already know what this product is for. But does it work? Your Savvy Shopper took this screenshot of a testimonial a helpful commenter left on this commercial’s YouTube page. I’m not sure who advised him that a case of PBR was an effective toxin eliminator, but at least he finally found the product that got the job done.
There is a commonly held belief among direct marketers that prevention doesn’t sell. Most DRTV industry professionals maintain a successful As Seen on TV product needs to solve a problem the consumer is already experiencing, not protect against a problem that might occur in the future.
Your Savvy Shopper is not an expert in women’s undergarments. Wait, maybe that came out wrong. I’ll start again. Like many men, I don’t know nearly as much about brassieres as I do about sports, cars or craft beer. So you may well be skeptical when I tell you the Genie Bra is so named because it’s modeled after the custom bra in which Barbara Eden enjoyed comfort, lift, separation, and freedom from back fat during long hours filming episodes of the classic TV series I Dream of Jeannie.
Does the humble bottle opener really need a redesign? Will a titillating name, unique form factor and magnetic bottle cap retention be enough to make My Top Off a summertime As Seen on TV sensation? Newcomer pitchman Michael Bee is sporting spiky hair in the TV spot. That worked for Vince from ShamWow back in 2008, but Vince pitched a product with very demonstrable benefits. What does My Top Off do? It opens a bottle of beer. That’s it. I’d need to pop a few tops and drain the contents before My Top Off would make me say “Wow,” throw away my church key, then open up my wallet to buy. Maybe the BOGO offer with free drink Koozi and hand-free drink sling will convince you.
