Friday Bottom 3: Bad Products

Have you ever watched a commercial and thought “how ridiculous!”? Today’s bottom 3 are the silly products you have seen advertised and pushed on the public that make you wonder who is buying them. Whether it’s a commemorative gold plated coin that is passed off as having been minted by the US Treasury, or just a useless product that found it’s niche, many bad products continue to make money. If they didn’t, I am sure they would have disappeared by now.

3. The Clapper – Clap on, clap off, the clapper! Are you too lazy to flip the light switch on the wall? No problem, just clap your hands in bed and let there be light! I think this is just a novelty, because remote controls are available at just about anywhere lights and fans are sold. They are much quieter and they control more functions than just on or off for one lighting device. The commercial is classic, though!

2. Chia Pet – Ch-ch-ch-chia! Let’s see, you take a ceramic sheep or human head, spread some alfalfa seeds, water it regularly, and pretend that the sprouts are hair. I actually know people who have purchased Chia Pets.

1. Spray On Hair – This is a product that preys on the insecurity of men who are losing hair and are desperate for help. Bro, let it go! What’s more embarrassing: A thinning dome, or flecks of black or brown paint falling all over your clothes from your head?
