BuzzFeed totally cut to the chase and grabbed the best part of every infomercial — the part where people are trying to do a mundane task and are absolutely awful at it. Supremely entertaining.
You know ALL OF THESE PEOPLE! My favorite is the woman baffled by Saran wrap. Classic.
You know what’s really scary? There are people in this great land of ours who say, “THAT *HAS* HAPPENED TO ME! HOW DO I GIVE YOU MY MONEY!?”
They say things like, “my fat dog can’t make it onto the bed! What will I do?!” and “I’ve got all this damn Tupperware. I guess I’ll just shove it into this cabinet and hope it sorts itself out,” and lest we forget, “spaghetti and meatball night! I’m iffin to wear my white tie and hope for the best!”
The even scarier part is that THEY CAN ALL VOTE. ALL OF THEM.
Democracy at its finest. Even those incapable of inserting a spoon into their mouth successfully (but can strategically put their breasts on the table for some inexplicable reason) as well as those who say things like “meeeeeehhhhhhh, seatbelt bad!” can vote.
Democracy is an inherently flawed system.
On that last point, I always felt that this was best proven out by the success — even the existence — of advertising.
I said that most frequently when I was making that advertising.
