As seen on TV products. We’ve all seen innumerable commercials for these products. Many of us have even purchased one or two of them now and then. Some of them are actually quite useful. Some of them… not so much.
Either way, there is one thing that can’t be argued: these As Seen on TV Products definitely make quite an impression. There are certain products that we’ve all heard of, and seen the commercials for. If any of these products come up in a conversation, everyone is sure to know exactly what you’re talking about. There are several As Seen on TV Products that we all remember, and that even have affected the way we do things.
Below are 5 of the most memorable As Seen on TV Products we’ve seen:
For this one, we don’t even need to mention that the majority of households now own at least one of these blankets with arms… even if they won’t admit it openly.
To discuss how memorable this product is, let’s just take a minute to talk about their commercials. None of us can forget the lady who throws her blanket off of her in annoyance when she can’t figure out how to answer the phone with her blanket on her. And need I mention their more recent commercials, where they have everyone dancing around in their snuggies? I’ll just say this: that is definitely unforgettable.
Oh, the ShamWow. What is there even to say about this product? We all remember all of the one liners in their commercials: “You’ll be saying wow every time you use this towel.” (Oh, so that’s where they got the name from!). “Made in Germany, you know the Germans always make the best stuff.” “You following me, camera guy?” “All I can say is, Sham WOW!”
Even though we’ve all made fun of the commercials, this is another product that we’ve all secretly wanted to try out.
3. Perfect Brownie Pan
No one can forget the first time they saw a commercial for the “Perfect Brownie Pan.” We all thought, “Why didn’t I think of this?? Every brownie gets to be a corner piece? Genius!” This simple pan changed the way we think about brownies.
4. Pillow Pets
This is one of those products that became an instant sensation the minute it came on the market. First it was the beanie baby, then the giga pet, and now it’s the pillow pet. Every child HAS to have one. Every parent has had their own experience where they’ve had to search from store to store for this one item because that is the ONLY thing that their child wants for their birthday. And you have to find the exact right animal. And every store is sold out. Because, guess what? Every other child in the world has also sent their parents on a crazed hunt for this must have item.
5. Justin Bieber Toothbrush
Anyone who has a preteen definitely can’t forget this product. That is because the moment our daughter saw the commercial for a toothbrush that sings Justin Beiber songs to you, she turned into a lunatic. She can’t live her life one more moment without this toothbrush. She will be the best child you’ve ever imagined, she will walk the dog, do her homework, and happily finish all of her chores, if you just purchase her this one item. She will never ask for anything again. The Justin Bieber toothbrush: a preteen’s dream, an adult’s worse nightmare.
