Oh man, the look she gives the presenter at the end! It made my genitals shrivel through the monitor.
Never put your genitals through the monitor!
Never cross the screens!
I love how vicious she is about it. “Untoppleable mug? Fuck you too.”
And I love how she doesn’t say a word. *topple*… “Hey now, come on…” *topple*
HOLY HELL! don’t tell that woman that she cant push something over
LIKE A BOSS.jpg
Is she five???
No, but sometimes it’s fun to pretend we are.
Actually if these things are supposed to be great because they’re really hard to knock over, then they should be HARD to knock over. Particularly if any of her viewers have five year olds. I’m just kind of amazed a TV host made a product look bad on their show!
Exactly. It’s not like that show isn’t watched by parents.
I see a @HuffPostComedy headline … Chardonnay Gives Host Superhuman Strength.
that was like the david blaine stare there at the end. intense kathy is intense.
I think that look is what the popular vernacular refers to as ‘alpha as fuck’.
That look said “I’m going to topple you next”.
What did she do to the untoppleable guest Steve Greenberg after the clip ends?
Forgot to take her meds?
More like forgot to be a nice girlie-host helping yet another salesman push products.
Isn’t that what those shows are mainly for?
Forgot not to take her meds with grapefruit juice?
*topple* *topple* *topple* …then attempting to extricate himself from this mess…”you can lift them right up…really cool”. No, really, booking time on tv for this product, and it’s an embarrassment. Good on her.
Topple all you want, madam. For every untoppleable mug you topple, a million more will rise to take its place!
I thought it said: “Kathy Lee topless…”, but I clicked thru anyway.
That’s what I thought it said, SO I clicked thru.
You know she’s like, 60?
Don’t judge me!
Helen Mirren, who’s in her mid-60s, was voted Sexiest Woman Alive. People don’t pay so much attention to those numbers anymore.
i no that feel bro
That was the most hard-hitting journalism I’ve seen on the Today Show.
Putting money on the mug company suing everyone involved for showing their product in a bad light. Well, if they have the money to sue. This is America, after all.
her name is spelled “kathie”
When an irresistible force meets an untoppleable object…
Whoohoo! I can’t wait until she has some representative from a phone company explaining “UNLIMITED” data plans.
*terabyte* *terabyte* *terabyte*
I’m in love.
No, guys, but listen, “you can pick them right up!”
You can pick them right up.
The mug you can lift.
Holy fuck we live in a world of technological wonder. What’s that line about science and magic?
Is she drunk on TV again?
WHEN ISN’T SHE?
I can stand upright, too. Unless somebody sucker-punches me.
His clenched fists right at the end…
yeah, he was about to punch her.
Alpha female bullies gay male to reinforce her dominance of the pack.
“Gay male bullshitting people for money foiled” is another way to look at it.
I’m not sure that she has non-bullshitting moral authority.
If you had asked me which “gay male bullshitting people for money” idea would succeed, I would’ve picked the mug over Kony2012 any day.
Yet, here we are…
shame the clip ended, i wanted to watch her topple the crap outta everything else
And when she did this exact same thing to a puppy you all got so riled up…
The produce never really got shown, what actual resistance does it have to being toppled? Any more than the inertia of its mass would naturally provide?
Apparently there’s a suction cup on the bottom, so it’s topple-resistant on smooth clean surfaces only
Revisiting Johnny Carson. Nice work if you can get it (and on NBC, apparently, it’s possible).
