What’s up with infomercials, anyway—by the way, have you tried the Perfect Brownie Pan?

Infomercial-style advertisers are geniuses.
It’s amazing how you can get sucked into one of their commercials, the equivalent of a “B” movie, and actually consider buying one of their products after thirty seconds of airtime.
In your heart you know it’s a waste of money, but maybe, just maybe, this time the product will be amazing just like they say.
What doesn’t help is that those commercials are able to suck kids in like yellow jackets to a can of syrupy soda—which explains why things like Flowbee are advertised on Nick Jr.
“Mom! You have to try the Perfect Brownie Pan … it bakes perfect brownies every time!”
“Mom…MOM! Big Top Cupcake! It makes giant cupcakes, and you can fill it with pudding or ice cream, or another kind of cake, or Jello, or…”
Who would’ve thunk kids would be
willing excited to promote things that they can’t even use?
And as annoying as kids can be with the over and over and over and over obsessive/compulsive repetitive, “Can we can we can we can we????” followed by, “I wanna I wanna I wanna I wanna,” well … ugh.
It’s almost simpler to buy the freakin’ brownie pan for $19.95 (plus postage and handling, and right now—for a limited time—by one get one free!) just to quell the incessant chatter.
And, it’s a good excuse to try one and not feel guilty about giving in to those smarty-pants infomercial ad execs.
