Infomercials are a strange beast. They are obviously there to try and entice us into buying something – we all know this yet we still watch them time and time again. Or is it just me, a victim of staying up too late at night with nothing on the television?
The Dual Saw is, well a saw really. That’s all in essence. Yet it’s one of the talking points of the day today after the Discovery Channel’s Pitchmen show with Billy and Sully. It definitely isn’t just me then.
This video isn’t the infomercial itself but rather a compilation of clips showing some guy going to town on all manner of materials. The Dual Saw cuts through them all, naturally, but then even I could have got into the cardboard box, saw or no saw.
My favorite infomercial has to be for the Jack LaLanne Power Juicer. Here is a guy I’ve never heard of trying to sell me a juicer which most reviews claim isn’t actually all that good. Yet I’ll happily sit there watching the infomercial. Do I need to get out more?
