Animated GIFs of infomercial losers

Animated GIFs from moments-of-disaster in "As Seen on TV" commercials.



  1. What are those horrible orange things and why does that gent have enough to feed a family in his bowl?

  2. Aw, you didn’t use the bukkake mop lady?

    Also, Cheeto-man seems to have more than one.  I’d love to see a series where everything is a setup as to why he knocks the bowl on the floor this time.  I’m sure ABC is already preparing a pilot for it, tho….

  3. Speaking of the one with all the stuff falling out of the cabinet onto the gormless woman…

    Are you concerned about your party guests rummaging around in your medicine cabinet looking for your Vicodin?!?

    Well, here’s a simple solution!!!

    If you’re really malicious, you’ll be using marbles.  Otherwise ping pong balls.

    ♥  Empty the cabinet, including shelves.
    ♥  Remove breakables in the immediate vicinity.
    ♥  Get a piece of stiff cardboard at least as large as the cabinet.
    ♥  Hold it tightly to the front of the open cabinet, leaving enough room at the top to load the cabinet with marbles.  If you’re using marbles, they’re probably too heavy to allow the cabinet to stay latched if you fill it, but a few inches-worth will still provide hilarity.
    ♥  Close the door as much as you can, then slide the cardboard out and latch the cabinet.

  4. Is it weird that I’ve always wanted to be one of these actors?  I have no urge to do any other sort of acting, but this would be the best job ever.

    1.  Not weird at all! These shoots have to be some of the funnest sets you could work on (well, except for the bukakke mop lady…lord knows how many takes she went through. You can see it in her face in the clip.) I also think it probably takes a real pro to get that right feel of “everyman” befuddlement and consternation. I love when these ads come on.

  5. Since no one else has I’ll ask the obvious question: why do so many people in infomercials eat or prepare food in ways no other human on Earth does?
