Mr. T- Flavorwave Oven- This commercial is beyond comprehension. According to my staff, this infomercial has been on television quite a while. Only now have I found the time to recount the horror. On this tragedy, Mr. T and some lady named
Let's be honest: Mr. T. is a landmine of malapropisms, broken grammar and a heavy dose of plain ol' stoopid For this commercial he didn't let anyone down with bombs like, "These frozen solid," and "This is delicious, my taste buds is going wild." Good god. The worst part was when Darla got a measuring cup of thick gold stuff (Mr. T's urine) and said it was oil, Mr. T offered the classic, "Who want all that in they body." So pithy.
Grade *** 1/2
For this commercial, Montel is frankly having too much fun with this
Montel keeps a brisk pace throughout, has a few doctors on there, you know, Dr. Scholls, the ghost of Marcus Welby, Doug Ross, etc. Clearly it's all set dressing for his "special guest" Sylvia Browne. Here's a question: What does she know about Living Well. Isn't she the one who tells you where the bones are buried? Now she's Dr. Oz. Anyway Sylvia was on here doing her normal stuff, chewing her fingers to the bone, telling folks their futures, looking scary and she ends up pounding down that drink too. She said it was good. That's it, I'm sold!
Grade *** 1/2 Extra points for the blender itself because it chops up granite into powder. That's just great....
