Most people are either sucked in or repulsed by infomercials. I personally think they are truly the last refuge of the hopeless romantic. Don't we all want a product that will clean our house, shave our dog, cut our vegetables and tuck us in? Too bad most of the products hawked in infomercials are total crap.
My dream is not to buy products from infomercials, or even be in the audience- I fantasize about hosting an infomercial! I ultimately sell crap for a living on radio (being a commercial voice over person), so I think I would be a great host for a half-hour jerk fest that runs at 4 in the morning. The only thing is that I wouldn't reveal what the product is at all-just a phone # and web site. The whole production would be a total tease. Hey, if P.T. Barnum could do it-why not yours truly?
