Just Shake It!

When Shawn showed me this South Park clip from Youtube, I thought it was just something really funny and ridiculous that they made up.


Being the curious bastard that I am, I search on Youtube to see if it was an actual product...AND THIS SHIT IS REAL!



The Shake Weight debuted in July 2009, and due to the perceived sexually suggestive nature of the product, infomercial clips of the exercise device have gone absolutely VIRAL. Since the infomercial first came out, it has been featured on the news, numerous talk shows and went crazy on Youtube. So, I just HAD to share it's awesomeness with you guys XD





Even SNL paid tribute to it!



Then, they came out with a Shake Weight for men, which is BIGGER and LONGER.




HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA.....I loved the feature on Ellen's show the most. I almost died laughing XD

Seriously, I don't care if the Shake Weight works, but is the product and infomercial just plain stupid...OR is it an ingenious way to generate loads of publicity (and sales) due to the suggestive sexual nature of the product? I suspect it's the latter, coz watching all those clips somehow makes me really wanna own one XD
