You Can’t Always Get What You Want

Wife, mom, grandmother, motorcyclist, and blogger.

You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes well you might find you get what you need! Watch this video of a compilation of old infomercials showing why you need their product. Hilarious and sad all at the same time. Hard to believe this type of marketing works, but it does to a tune of $150 billion dollars of consumer products are sold via infomercials in the US. I’ll admit to buying a thing or two because of an infomercial struck a chord, but overall I’m not persuaded by them. How about you?

P.S. I would have set the images to the old Rolling Stones song!

  1. Oh, there’s nothing I like better than an infomercial–people look like such idiots on them. I admit that on occasion I succumb, although I cannot remember ever actually using something that I purchased.

  2. I don’t think that I ever ordered anything from an infomercial but maybe it’s because I never watch them because they are too long. But that is a great video, though they should list the product…

  3. Nothing like showing the extremes to try and sell a product.

    I don’t buy anything off the TV but every once in a while in the stores I see the “As Seen on TV” products and I wonder if they work as claimed.
