Well, just last week I let you in on my secret addiction to Informercials. Now that it’s all out on the table, I can finally share all of my favourites with you and attempt to explain why I am so addicted!
This week I am happy to introduce the Insta Slim shirt/tank top. Their tagline is, “Would you like to get rid of your lumps, bumps and bulges without surgery, exercise and pills?!” When your selling point is that you can “feel and look younger and more confident” without dieting or exercising, there is something flawed with your product.
They go on to explain that you can “firm and tone your chest” with their shirts. I hate to disagree with their market research and medical trials but, No You Can Not! You are not firming or toning anything, you are just hiding chub under a suit of armour. Which is in fact quite awesome, but not a medical miracle.
The testimonials are what push this informercial from good to great for me. One happy customer says, “the instant benefit is that I’ve lost 3 inches off my waist!” Again, Nope. You’ve simply found a place to hide the cinnamon buns for a short period of time. Once the shirt comes off, the 3 inches (and probably more) will come bouncing back!
Finally, the woman who says, “I threw away all my husbands shirts and replaced them with these” as she rubs his chest provocatively. Yeah, until you get home and he takes the shirt off! Then you are faced with the even worse reality of having beer goggles, without the beer!
For entertainment value and laughability, I give the Insta Slim Infomercial a very tight 7 out of 10! The other great thing about this product is that it spawned a number of amazing blog reviews on YouTube. Seriously, they are worth a watch as some of them are hilarious! Enjoy, the magic that is the Insta Slim Shirt!
