I Am So Sick Of The OxyClean Guy!

Fri Aug 23, 2002 9:04 am



Yeah, that's him, right there. And I can't stand him! I pride myself on being a night-owl, but his inane infomercials are nearly reason enough for me to turn in early. What happened to the days when late-night infomercials were almost respectable? He's such an obvious Bob Villa copy. Each thumbs-up he flashes degrades the industry a little more. And his HUGE arms movements, how annoying can one guy be!?

Someone take him off the air!

I like when they try to make you think you are watching something credible, like the "Invention Channel".

LOL!

My all-time favourite info-mercial was the "Flowbee" hair cutting system.



I would actually buy one...

Big Nuts,

You'll get paralysis watching that kind of stuff.

You want to know what's worse, I did a couple of segments for TVC here in Oz on cable (TVC was the Value Chanel) selling 'Were's Wally' quilt covers and "Liquid Amber Jewelry".

*shocking* it was fun, although I never made a career out of it!

The OxyClean guy IS annoying, I'll admit that. BUT - have you been introduced to his arch-rival...

The OxyClean ads are annoying ... but we have used the stuff, and it actually works very well.
By the way, the OxyClean guy (Billy Mays) pitches some other products too, I can't remember what. And at least he's not as annoying as the Dell Dude (though he's not a gay cultural icon like the latter).

Wow, something I agree with We're Nuts on...Mays is quite irritating but not nearly as annoying as Renee Stevens who does commercials for a local restaraunt that go on TV and radio every 5 minutes.

Oh jeez. During the night, firefighters have to respond to calls. Some of them aren't serious, others are five alarm blazes. Meanwhile in Seattle, poor little Nutso is distressed by the OxyClean guy. While I agree that the guy is annoying, he is nowhere near the nuisance Mariah Carey or the Backstreet Boys are. Frankly, if you worry so much about the Oxy Clean guy, why don't you use the remote that came with your TV and change the channel?

What is an "OxyClean" guy?

Why does anyone watch infommercials?

Why does Boeing4ever have no sense of humour?

Yeah, I know he does other products too. I only said "OxyClean" because that seems to be his most famous.

And don't mind B4e, he just hates me.

Show me where I called your thread stupid in the exact term. I could care less about you. I care about your arrogance. That's what has me peeved.

We already discussed this, B4e. I started I whole thread dedicated to finding out what people really thought of me. And you know what? Not one person said I was arrogant. That means you are most likely WRONG. So give it a rest. It's clear you and I can't get along, so I'll agree to avoid you if you agree to avoid me. Deal?

Very well. Be forwarned, this doesn't apply to any I v P/Dem vs. Rep/USA vs. USSR etc threads.

I'd love it if we could all forget the above posts ever happened and get back to bashing infomercials.

I'm not a fan of this guy either! He does infomercials for the Showtime Rotisserie and I've seen it so many times! It's so annoying. The worst part about it is it's so lame! He'll say something and automatically the camera will "turn" to the audience pointing and saying "oooh ahhh". Bunch of BS. They'll freezeframe the infomercial and suddenly be like "But Ron...WAIT! If you call in the next 10 minutes you'll only have to pay THREE easy payments of $300 for this crap!"


"Set It And Forget It!".....forget it.

You know it's funny. While I don't pride myself on being a night person like We're Nuts (that pesky thing called a J-O-B) gets in the way of that, when I am up, and I come across one of these crazy ass infomercials, I never stay tuned long enough to learn the people's names, become too familiar with their products, or watch long enough to be overly annoyed. I guess that's just me though. Having common sense is a bitch.

As far as TV pitchmen go I think that the evil Ron Popeil tops them all for pure sleezy fun.

The famous "Pocket Fisherman", even back when I was in the 6th grade (yes there was TV back in 1975) we all thought the name Pocket Fisherman was a riot, I still remember the jokes, while grabbing the edge of your pocket and saying "$h1t I caught a whopper". I know I can just see the Innuendo wanna-be comments now "ya shudda seen the one that got away"

One of my friends bought some sort of TV shelf that mounts on the top of your TV for a VCR, stereo, etc.. from Big Lots.. It had that TV sticker on it, except it said "Item similar to those seen on TV".
