10 Biggest As Seen On TV SCAMS!

– Do you want to gain muscle instantly? Then try Red Cow Muscle Solution. This doesn’t look healthy. Just in my mouth? Okay. Nothing happened. Of course it did, stupid. Call now. (whimsical music) This one’s for all of
you who always wished, “Why can’t they make a highly suggestive workout tool for me?” The Shake Weight is a
phallic looking object that was initially marketed towards women as an oscillating dumbbell that claims it increases the impact of exercise. At nearly $20 per Shake Weight, plus shipping and handling of course, these things sold rapidly in no small part due to the viral
commercials that had people laughing so hard, they
must have been dying to know if the product was even real. In the first year that it was released, the Shake Weight made over $40 million for Fitness IQ and the
man behind it, Ben Kunz. In 2011, Consumer Reports released a study in which they found that doing
the Shake Weight routines actually burned less calories than simply walking at a reasonable pace. So don’t waste your money
looking like you’re, you know. Just go for a walk instead. Just in case you didn’t feel nerdy enough with those pens in your pocket or purse, now you can wear that ballpoint around your neck like a real playa. What’s that, you want more? You got it. Boom, it’s a digital clock, too. Nailed it. Marketed to those who are always dropping, breaking, or otherwise losing their pens, the Magnescribe Pen is a
writing tool that connects to a circular clock you
wear around your neck. Simply by pulling it out of its dock, you can be writing in seconds, like, you know, two
seconds sooner than it was if, you know, you had it
in your purse or pocket. The commercial makes it seem like this thing is essential for your life. Why glance at your watch or phone when you could awkwardly
draw up the string around your neck and turn the
tiny clock to face you? Sounds like a good idea to me. The commercial also fails to address what happens when you
ultimately lose the pen that belongs in the magnet pendant. Well, you just gotta buy
another one, obviously. Have you ever returned from
a nice walk and thought, “Man, I wish that walk
could’ve been more difficult and full of embarrassing mishaps”? If so, do I have the perfect solution to your too solid walking problem. Toning shoes. This new footwear is
keeping people on their toes with different styles such
as rocker bottom sole, curved soul, and collapsible heel sole, and by promising to aid
in burning more calories with each step, improving muscle strength, and bettering overall balance, while making walking, of
course, more difficult. But of course, studies show
that they don’t do those things. At all. In fact, on May 25th, 2011,
Consumer Reports revealed that most types of
toning shoes just created increased risks of
injury to their wearers. Twisted ankles, muscle
tears, and even broken bones were becoming common,
with some of the injuries actually requiring surgery to fix. Stick to normal shoes, people. There are no shortcuts. Ugh, isn’t preparing pasta such a chore, all that boiling and waiting patiently? And don’t you just hate all those dishes that you have to do after you cook it? Well, lucky for you, the Pasta Pro is here to make your life much easier. Basically a pot with
holes in the top of it for straining the water, this thing’s gonna revolutionize how you soften your noodles. Just boil, dump, and
then do everything else you’d normally do. Of course, the Pasta Pro barely decreases any amount of dishes that you have to do, merely eliminating the strainer, which you probably eliminated anyway if you use the lift
the pod lid just enough for the water to spill out
but not the noodles approach. Still though, how can you go without it? The best part of this as seen on TV item is the commercial itself, which expresses the product’s versatility, which allows it to be used on either a gas or electric stove top. You know, like pretty much
every other pot in existence. So. Want to improve your strength,
dexterity, flexibility, but without actually working for it? Try the Power Bracelet. This company, whose CEO
and PR team by the way, must go through a lot of undergarments with their pants constantly
catching on fire, created some plastic wrist
accessories that promise you an increase in physical
attributes simply by wearing them, or, at least they did. That is, until they were
forced by an Australian competition in consumer commission ruling in 2011 to retract their claims. They also had to apologize
and pay out around, I don’t know, somewhere around the tune of $57 million for false advertising. The false advertising claimed that the enhancements occurred due to holographic technology, which was basically a sticker
on the front of the bracelet. How people believed the company’s lies, I’ll never understand, but many did, and shelled out around $30 per unit, and they sold a whole lot of ’em. There’s a sucker born every minute. It happens all the time. A happy newlywed couple are
settling down for the night when suddenly one of them
farts, ending the bliss forever in the stench of the possessed element that is now hovering around them. Next thing you know, they’re
in a bitter custody battle as the divorce papers get finalized. If you don’t want this to happen to you, then you’ve got to get
the Marriage Blanket. This ridiculous product
sells for just $29.99 plus shipping and handling, and promises to protect your union from the bodily functions you experience by insulating you against
each other’s odors. Made from activated carbon fabric, which apparently is
what the military needs to protect soldiers from
chemical weapon attacks, the Marriage Blanket
absorbs your flatulence and saves you from a nasty divorce. Of course, a real
partnership could survive a little poopy gas, but
don’t go tellin’ that to all those potential customers. To them, it’s just silly nonsense. Legit though, how bad
your farts gots to be to make me wanna get a divorce with you? Less Taco Bell, more veggies. As ripoffs go, few are more
clearly not worth your money than those which promise
you healthier life and the chance to shed those
excess pounds without exercise, like by simply, you know, taking a pill. However, that’s what a number
of TV commercials advertised for companies like
Enforma Natural Products, who in April of 2000
was ordered to settle up with the Federal Trade
Commission’s charges and pay $10 million in consumer redress after misleading customers
with their products. Their products included
Exercise in a Bottle, Fat Absorber, Fat Trapper,
and Fat Trapper Plus. Calling these products miracle drugs, the people behind these lies actually had the nerve to try it again, this time falsifying scientific studies and violating the court
order by advertising and selling new products,
Acceleron and Chitozyme. In case you didn’t know, there’s no pill that can make you lose weight. It’s all proper diet and exercise. Unless it’s a laxative, in which case, you’d probably lose a
little bit of weight. Sorry, that’s gross. Man, when you gotta go,
you gotta go, am I right? But when you’re about to
tee off on that 10th hole and that urge to pee creeps
up on ya, what do you do? What’s that? You wanna find a toilet, outhouse, or bushes like a normal human being? Why on earth would you do that when there are products
like Uroclub to assist you? This incredibly ridiculous
secret pee pee reservoir makes the perfect gift
for golfers who can’t be more than eight feet from
a bathroom at all times. Grandpa, lookin’ at you. The Uroclub looks like a normal golf club, except the end of the grip
unscrews to reveal a tube that’s ready to receive your three wood. By covering your crotch area
with the provided green towel and putting your business inside the club, relieving yourself is exactly
the same as using a facility, only more complicated and obvious. Ever wonder why your dad takes a really long time before putting? Yeah, now you know. When it comes to false advertising, it seems like sometimes hiding
the lies in a hint of truth makes the advertisers sleep better. Take Sauna Suits, or the
more modern Sauna Shorts, for example. These things promise to strip
you of those extra pounds by making you sweat more, but
they’re far from a good idea. Now, the truth is in the sweating part. The suits and shorts keep the heat in, increasing your body heat,
which makes you sweat. Now, while yes, you lose water weight while you sweat excessively,
it’s a temporary fix. The first thing you have to do
is drink water to compensate, and that’s just going to
bring the weight right back. What’s worse is using Sauna Suits, shirts, or any similar style of
attempted weight loss can do some real damage to your body. Excessive sweating can
lead to severe dehydration, which in turn can lead to organ failure. This one’s not just a
ripoff, it’s life-risking, but hey, if you wanna lose some pounds, sometimes you just gotta ride the snake. Don’t you just hate it when
you’re doing your business, you know, dropping the
kids off at the pool, you know what I’m sayin’, and there’s absolutely
nothing to do but sit there and wait for nature’s
movements to be over with? Sure, you could read my book,
Mind=Blown or a magazine or get back to those texts
that you’ve been putting off, but there’s got to be something that, while spectacularly unnecessary, will give you something to do and maybe even teach you something. Well, yes, there is, the Potty Putter. Though now widely considered
a gag gift for avid golfers, this bathroom distraction
had a real TV commercial teasing it would take
some strokes off your game for only $19.99. The ad actually promised
to make you healthier by not rushing your business, claiming with the Potty Putter, you’ll take time to play with your putter. Of course, the whole thing
is incredibly awkward as nobody puts in a squatting position, and if you do, they’re
probably pooping their pants and you should get
authorities immediately. But hey, thank you guys
so much for watching this, and if you got a laugh out of
it or you learned something, any of the above, drop a like on it. And of course, don’t forget to
subscribe if you haven’t yet. I’m going to have a brand
new video for you tomorrow at 12 west coast time,
three Eastern Standard Time, so make sure you come by then. Have a great day. Make sure you’re smiling today, baby. Don’t go buying any of these products, and I’ll see you then. Peace.

  1. No matter where ever thrift store or good will you're at, there's always gonna be at least 2 shake weights there.

  2. Apparently you have never been around when my hubby lets one rip! ????? That blanket is not a bad idea!

  3. Matt had me dieing with that fart blanket. He should meet my husband then maybe he see this ant such a bad idea. ?

  4. * The doctors in those white lab coats on many of those pill commercials are usually not MDs but actually hold mail order correspondence course PhD's ♣

  5. not every piece of cookware should be used on a gas range. plus the pasta pot is convenient and does get rid of the strainer. it's not easy holding a pot lid on a big boiling pot of water. having said that… drill some holes in one of your pot lids. of coarse if your looking for a new pot… why not.

  6. The shake weight when it first came out i thought it was a sex toy for women.. warped teenage brain at the time

  7. Ahahaha I actually have a pasta pot like that. I love it. All water comes out and not 1 piece of spaghetti. I have used it for years.

  8. The science behind the rapid motion of the Shakeweight is actually good. It improves your slow twitch muscle response which is really good for balance, proprioception, and increasing strength. The same idea is true for the balance shoes, increased balance, proprioception, and strength. The execution was not great though. For the shoes, walking on uneven or soft surfaces does the same thing, like grass or sand, not always on sidewalks or pavement.

  9. Bought one and the damn thing suctioned so we could not get the top off. Went to dinner and dropped it in the trash. Unnecessary.

  10. These products don't work, but they remind me of the Ronco products from the 70s that worked but you wouldn't buy, like the one that scrambled your egg while still inside the shell.

  11. What would happen if you combined the shake pace and walking at a reasonable pace. How many calories would you burn.

  12. I had a pair of those toning shoes when they first came out. They were a pair of sketchers, and got them on sale I think I got them in an outlet mall or the regular mall and the store was called The Shoe room, not really sure and that’s not the point anyways, but I liked them I never tripped or twisted my ankle. I didn’t use them for running or walking. I bought them because I liked the way the looked and thought they may put another inch or two on my height. I’m 5.2 so I’m short, they were very comfortable. So I tried them out at my job and I’m constantly on my feet from walking and standing for 12 hrs… subtract 2- 20min and 1-30min breaks on my shift. I was hard work, but those shoes stopped my dogs(shoes if you don’t know) from barking loud and bad!!! They were comfortable and I had them for yrs. sketchers has a bad name for not lasting too long, but these did and I wished they still made them! Best working shoes I had, when they made the announcement on a recall on them, my friend ask me was I going to go take them back? I told her not on her life I rather have them than my 50 dollars back! Oh do I miss them! If anyone knows if any store is selling them again plz tell me I will be forever grateful to you!!! Thanks ??☺️☺️☺️

  13. I LOVED my Pasta Pro Pans! I don't care what ANYONE says, they were cool! Unfortunately my life is consistently WAY too abundant and I have no idea what happened to them.

  14. Yeah hes right im 6'4 285 lbs and i do sweat alot in the heat but i keep a cool drink and stay out the heat as much as possible. I cant see myself wearing a sweat lose weight suits……i believe that will kill me…..lol

  15. I remember buying those bracelets, and eveyone in my school had them until the truth surface

    It was still an "ok" fashion thingy xD

  16. The other day I was on the can, minding my own business, passing time with the "Potyputter"… When this alien walks in, surely looking for the planet's leader…

  17. I see HUGE "pootential" in the Fart Blanket……Someone needs to make Fart Proof Car Seat Covers…for those LONG cross country trips with the backseat passenger's……and Fart Proof Cinema Seats for those Silent But Deadly interludes during the love scene……

  18. I can see what they meant to do with the power bracelet… They meant for their buyers to believe that it works placebo effect but idk what some of the others were thinking

  19. "Dropping the kids off at the pool"
    "Taking the browns to the super bowl"
    "Releasing the blind otter"
    "Making a deposit at the porcelain bank"
    "Building a log cabin".
    And other such euphemisms

  20. Sana suit when i played football asa youth i would us blac grabage bag to lose weight cut a hole out 4 head n arms its an old sport trix its nothin original

  21. Lol really Matt? Have you ever poured out pasta and actually didn't burn yourself? I don't understand why the pasta pot is on this list ?

  22. A thing is a phallic symbol if it's longer than it's wide.**

  26. Sooo funny I thought I was the only one who says "dropping the kids off at the pool" ?????‍♀️??‍♀️

  27. Matt wrong toilet analogy dropping your kids off at the pool is enjoying yourself while on a toilet and then turning around and releasing the tadpoles the term you're looking for is taking the Browns to the Super Bowl

  28. Hey that watch pen is a good idea I ordered one to fill out more checks to buy more useless tv crap lol and I can see what time it is lol

  29. My wrestling team used a full body sauna suit when we needed to loose weight fast to fit a certain weight class. Yes, you have to drink alot of water to loose weight first..and also it was perfect cuz after you could be back to your normal weight. Buy yeah.

  30. I bought the Potty Putter as a gag gift for a friend of mine and his laughter was well worth the price I paid for it.

  31. why you hating on the pasta pot? i've had one for about 20 years (well, a series of them – they tend to be coated in teflon, which doesn't last forever) and use it all the time.

  32. OMG, U R hilarious. Thank U 4 always adding knowledge, suspense & laughter to each of your videos. U R the Best! Thanks, JAK

  33. I had a pata pro and it was great until the teflon got damaged and the place the lid screwed on got damaged too badly to hold the lid.
