VIDEO: Infomercials

You can’t avoid them. They are per­sis­tent. They want you to spend your hard-earned money.

And I love them.

Yes! Infomer­cials are made for those prod­ucts that need your con­vinc­ing that they work. And some of the ads are RIDICULOUS.

For exam­ple, remem­ber the Snug­gie? (Which, by the way, I am work­ing on get­ting a Z103 ver­sion of the Snug­gie). Seri­ously though, could you not laugh out loud at some of the quirks in the infomercial?

Let me tell you though, the guy from the Slap Chop (his name is Vince) rev­o­lu­tion­ized infomer­cials. Some­how, some­way, he made them INTERESTING.

And since he made it inter­est­ing, other awe­some peo­ple out there wanted to make them more inter­est­ing.… like DJ Steve Porter, who remixed the Slap Chop commercial:

Even with some good infomer­cials out there, there are the BAD ones. They are pretty much on every chan­nel at all times of the day. I’m not going to bore you with those. But I am going to share with you MY infomer­cials that I made for fun.

DISCLAIMER: The fol­low­ing infomer­cials are entirely of a satir­i­cal nature. No prod­ucts are really being sold. I, Matty Mer­rill, do not endorse any prod­uct, speak for any com­pany, or claim asso­ci­a­tion to or with any­one named in the fol­low­ing videos.

This was the first one that was ever made. It’s called Barack Ball. This was made before I became a DJ for Z103:

I know you want to buy one now! Haha, if not that, you will DEFINITELY want to buy this! This one was made for a class­room assignment:

They are corny, yes I know. But for some rea­son, they were unbe­liev­ably fun to make.… which may explain why you see so many of them on TV!
