I saw a post from my Twitter “friend” Mike Doe today that read:
It’s Flowbee time. Shaggy is not a good look.
This immediately made me nostalgic for all of the Sunday morning television I watched as a kid. I’d honestly map out my television viewing to maximize the amount of infomercials I could pack into four to six hours.
(This, of course, would explain why I think everything I see on television is the next best thing invented and I have four friends.)
The Flowbee. The Showtime Rotisserie Grill. OxyClean. Mike Levy and his Amazing Discoveries. Sigh.
I tried in vain to find clips of the original Flowbee infomercial and struck out. I did find this one though, which I found to be equally pleasing to my nostalgia for 1980s products and 1980s television.
I’m tempted (you know, if it weren’t still freakin’ $50!!) to buy one of these and make Brandon a guinea pig. Then again, if anybody has a Flowbee they wouldn’t mind letting me borrow, we can get this experiment under way much sooner.
