s Seen on TV sales pitches are so entertaining to me. I mean, we know that the sales techniques work for stuff that usually doesn’t. From the EggStractor to the pasta straining lid, they try so hard to show how HARD life is until using the product being sold. The pasta straining pot lid is my favorite commercial. They show a “Mom” struggling to drain a cafeteria sized galvanized bucket into her kitchen sink. Disaster ensues! BLAM! Oh my!
But, then again, I may have to put a new ridiculous product ad at the top of my mental list. The Xhose by DAP. This hose really “looks” great and of course, way too good to be true. However, for me the real surprise was in the commercial where guy sitting on his @$$ next to a seasoned older lady comments at how much easier it is for her to water things with this hose.

Easier for HER?
Really? I guess the video doesn’t show his broken legs or paralysis.
