Mighty Critical – Infomercials
It’s that time of year again…
No, No, No, not THAT time, it’s the time for…
Love em or hate em (mostly hate em),
they’re here to steal your holiday money
& guaranteed to disappoint your friends,
family & enemies alike!
With hearty “lower-your-defences”
it’s not their fault if they suck,
it’s your fault you bought them!
But if you’re as proactive with your return
as you were with your 4am purchase,
you’ll get your money back in a jiffy!
“Your call is important to us.
Please wait until our cheapest customer
service rep in India gets to your call.
Due to poor Internet lines for broadband
telephony, if you’re disconnected after a
30 minute wait, please try again and move
to the end of the line.”
Jokes aside, we’ll be discussing:
* What is actually “good” about the programs
* What to beware of (a LOT)
And which fallacies are still alive & well
in the late-night infomercial biz.
