Teleshopping - Magicians at work !!!

If you have seen the Teleshopping advertisements, yeah !!! The ones in which two people come and chatter all that nonsense. How to tell whether they are lying or not? Its quite simple ~ ~Check whether their lips are moving !!! I almost mistook it for a magic show. I will tell you why?

Firstly because it proclaims to do the following things :
  • Reduce your weight from 150 Kgs to 150 grams
  • Decrease your current bill from Rs 2000/- to 2000 paise
  • Make 500 gallons of juice out of one orange !!!
  • Grow hair 1 cm thick and 1 m long on a bald head !!!
  • Extra glowing tube lights which cost you so much at the time of buying that you cant afford to spend anything on it again !!!
  • Make a Australian white class out of a Somalian Negro !!!

And now for the free items that these people promise.....Not only these !!! Free products anywhere !!! You buy something for thousands of rupees even after being given 99% discount and this is what you get free ~ ~ ~

  • A wrist watch which is not waterproof !!! Leave waterproof its not even airproof !!! (only to be used in vacuum)
  • A free redeem cash coupons whose last date - validity would be over by the time they reach you !!!
  • An electric iron that will equal back the original electricity bill which you reduced by using their earlier product !!!
  • A mosquito bat that can hardly paralyze a mosquito leave alone kill it !!!
  • A shirt worth Rs 4000 /- which you could anyhow get on the footpath for Rs 140 /- In addition to being untearable and unwrinkagable is also unwashable and untouchable !!!
I knew idiot box has always something scintillating to bore us !!! But Thanks a lot to Channel 'v' and 'M' tv !!! Cheers to a Great Week Ahead !!!

Funny post...lose weight from 150kgs to 150 gms..nice dig on all those weight reduction centres, they are like mushrooming everywhere and I haven't seen a single person till date who actually transformed from a baby elephant to a reasonable size(forget abt Heidi Klum like figure they promise) after using their technique...lol...

Cinderella. said...

Lol...I know exactly what are you talking about.
Rem'ber the Hollywood movies dubbed and adviertised on the televios ?
My bro and me used to make such fun outta them. We'd watch a hollywood fick togethr, an un dubbed one, and then go over it again, and start speaking its dialogues in hindi and then kaugh our guts out...!!!!
I hate to watch dubbed movies like that. But I love posts like this.
:)

ad libber said...

What about the astrologically compliant gems? Overpriced with free rudraksh as a compensation.
A very important post, this.

Hershey Desai said...

ah. Teleshopping network. A constant source of amusement.
... though I never seen them sell shirts.
I think their best product that induced a lot of laughter was that electric butterfly thing one attaches to their stomach. Basically that thing shocks your fat butt while you lie on a couch, watch tv and eat potato chips, helps you lose weight.
I really wonder who would buy such a thing...

try switching to nat geo or the travel n living channel from time to time..they got good shows there. too

Sourish Karmakar said...

TV has good shows to like bikini destinations on Zee cafe :P

bluebutterfly said...

heya ...
first off we do learn from our mistakes ... but i am a self proclaimed genius ... the problem with thet is the fact that im a misunderstood genius coz no one understands i m a genius ...
i do not always write like that ... just when i am trying really hard to explain my point ..

anyways nice digs at those ads ...
all teh hindi dubbing that they do is so funny ... really cute post ...

bingo used to air this ad about glad bangles with this girl speaking in a very weird tone ... a rip off of telemarketings ads ... my friends used o say i speak like that .... lol ...

well i obviously dont in case your are left wondering ....
