Oh my god, this infomercial. I think, in one form or another, it has existed for the better part of a decade. They keep filming vaguely new ones, each built on the refuse pile of terrible acting from the previous one. This commercial doesn’t advertise a product so much as dare you to buy it. You see how dumb this shit is, so why don’t you try to see if you can recreate the dumbfuckery in your own kitchen.
The problem isn’t the product (though if online reviews are to be believed, you might want to look into a different food processor). It’s the Saturday afternoon theater group of actors who try to bring it to life like Frankenstein trying to use friction instead of electricity on his monster, being awkward and weird until it mercifully ends. I have no doubt that infomercials are cheesy intentionally; it probably gets more attention then trying to have Tom Hanks and Daniel Day-Lewis dramatically espouse the virtues of a machine that can make me a quesadilla in two minutes. But there’s a fine line between cheese and “The fuck is this?”
Twelve seconds into this infomercial, we’re introduced to some sour old harridan lamenting the lack of food at what we can assume is a dinner party. And sure, these two hosts are assholes for inviting people over to eat and not only having no food ready but also making them sit for 20 minutes while they make every meal in the same shitty piece of equipment, but show some fucking tact. You’re a guest, you execrable crone.
No less than two seconds later, an older and cronier hag starts slinging shade, suggesting the hosts are either lazy shits or have spent all day boning. My interpretation is for the latter, because seriously, is the lady leading the infomercial wearing a nightgown?
I debated if I should post this considering everything that happened last night and will be happening in the future :’| But I needed something nice to distract me from that and thought that others could use the same. ANYWAY! Apparently there will be a duet version of Viktor’s routine song!! Oh my god PLEASE…my heart can’t handle this.
OK BUT GUYS can we talk about how momo’s performance on hit the stage talked about abusive relationships??? it CLEARLY was about abusive relationships but she also showed how society tends to ignore that truth. like with the backdancers, they covered their eyes and kept walking bc they didnt want to know they didnt want to see they didnt do ANYTHING to stop mina’s suffering. and then when mina dies momo “breaks” but then joins them and closes her eyes so she cant see what shes done to mina and also walks away. im just speechless SHE DID THAT MOMO AND MINA THEY DID THAT IM SO. SHOCKED I REALLY DONT KNOW WHAT TO SAY
