Have you seen the shameless exaggeration, the tasteless products, and the pure hokum dispensed by all those infomercials that clog up the late night airwaves? Welcome to the Ridiculous Infomercial Review, the website that gleans laughs from the tacky world of television infomercials. All sorts of infomercials are featured here, old and new, famous and obscure — the more ludicrous the item and the lamer the sales pitch, the better.
This is a hilarious site. Its purpose isn’t to criticize or dispute the claims in informercials (thus I think they mean “revue”), but to mock them. Mercilessly. The reviews point out the silliness inherent in these ads.
Featured infomercials include:
- Dr. Ho’s Muscle Massager
- Alzare and ExtenZe (Ridiculous Infomercial Review says: “evidence that penis enlargement ads have outgrown your Inbox”)
- The afore-mentioned manic Matthew Lesko
- The Juiceman II
- Dual Action Cleanse with Klee Irwin
- And, of course, the one and only Richard Simmons pitching Farewell to Fat
Here’s a segment from Dual Action Cleanse with Klee Irwin that Ridiculous Infomercial Review finds, well, ridiculous:
