I Wasn't Gonna Go There But.....

Have any of you seen the infomercial for Shake Weight?

If not, stop reading this right now and google it. Watch the infomercial. Then google Shake Weight for men, watch that one, and come back to finish reading this.

Oh My God! At first I thought this was a spoof! But it is actually a real product!

I was watching tv with the husband when the infomercial came on. I thought it was the most ridiculous, yet also kind of humorous in a porn sort of way, infomercial I have ever seen in my life. Uh, who's the genius that came up with that product. I mean, come on, I can't even watch it with a straight face.

This is the workout that all guys will want to watch their wives/ girlfriends do. They can do it one handed or two.

And the men's version... don't even get me started. "The powerful thrust of the shake weight ignites muscle activity...." Ok, fine so I'm a woman in her 30s acting like a 10 year old, but come on..... a little bit funny???

If it wasn't shaped like a weight it could have been sold at an adult XXX store or on some nasty web site. It might be a great product for a "how to" bachelorette party.....

Seriously, I'm holding back here because I'm not sure who reads this....

I could go on and on.....

  1. u r holding back. I never saw the infomercial on TV, but another blogger I read a while ago, put it on her blog and joked about it just the same. Anyway - Sex sells, I guess. (even if that is not the point of it)

  3. OK . . . I have seen it and I am not afraid to admit that I thought some of the same things as you! It is definitely a phallic symbol, is it not? But, the scary thing is . . . you know that someone out there is going to buy it. :)

  8. The Rebbe...... hahahahaha. I am sure that he also holds that if for some reason you cannot get one of these shake weights, you can do this exercise with something else..... am I right?

  13. Yeah...there are really quite a few things that can be said about this "product" which really shouldn't be called one at all. If it WAS a real product then we could find it in an "As Seen on TV" store...and I've never seen one there...so it must not be real ;)
