What Infomercial/fake Pastor Pisses You Off Most?

Wed Feb 27, 2008 10:10 am

Upon flipping through channels I couldnt decide who really is the most annoying. So let me compile a list and choose one from that aforementioned list that makes you want to just hit a kitten with a steel pipe.

1. Chuck Norris Total Gym

I can only praise Chuck Norris because Chuck Norris isnt afraid of the dark, the dark is afraid of Chuck Norris.

2. John Becks Free and Clear Lien Estate Program

This guy looks and is a swindler.

3. Kearney Thomas - Pastor Extraordinaire.
-Couldnt find a damn picture of this clown

4. Billy Mays - Anything from Orange Glo to Oxy Clean!

The Man, The Myth, The Legend of Infomericals. What Burt Reynolds is to moustaches, Billy Mays is to beards.

5. Bowflex

The sheer magnitude of this infomercial is astounding, I just counted 4 channels out of 30 showing this one.

6. Oreck Vacuum Cleaner

Been around longer than Fidel Castro, and no sign of croaking yet.

7. Matthew Lesko - Government Money

I believe this human is shown in DARE anti drug classes across America as to living proof what can happen to you if you indeed do take the funny stuff.

8. Tony Little Gazelle

I cant believe this asshat is still on the air. By default people like this need to be born with German Citizenships...just look at him.

9. Extenze Male Enhancement....oh wait.

I got this picture from Canadian Overstock.com, LH423 isnt that where you shop?

10. Enzyte Male Enhancement

Even KROC has hope now after his ex-wife took his balls with her after the divorce.

11. The Perfect Pushup - Developed by a Marine

I dont have a good comment for this one, it just looks retarded.

12. Video Professor - Just put the disk in the CD tray!

Assclown who is suing his own customers!

13. Joel Osteen

This guys megachurch is bigger than the Superdome, and why the hell does he have the same expression constantly like he just got a 2 by 4 rammed up his exit hole and enjoyed it.

14. Proactiv Acne cleaner

Helping 12 year old Korean kids across Jr. High Schools solve math problems with ease yet again.

15. Vinyl/Leather Mender - Have a hole in your brand new leather couch!

No, I dont...now STFU.

16. Urine B gone

Just in case ScottysAir has again pissed his pants.

17. Little Rascal Scooter

A new form of transportation for lazy and fat Americans has arrived. Covered by your taxes!

18. Listen Up - Hear the birds and the TV!

Also good for hearing your neighbors banging away 1000ft away at 3am!

19. Bosley - Hair Restoration

Now you can look like the Hoff again. Oh wait, too bad you got a crap Honda. Das ist scheise!

20. Be a Real Estate Millionaire

This guy pisses me off alot...just the way he looks is a pissoff.

21. Sunsetter - Awning !

Why not buy a remote control awning for $1000 when an Umbrella for $100 is just not pimp enough

22. LifeLock - Personal identity security

Might even not be that stupid of an infomercial...until the end where you can take this product for a "Test Drive"
Test Drive a chainsaw whoever thought of this catch phrase.

23. Rug Doctor

Because every hot MILF likes to stay home and clean Toby's tapeworm infested diarrhea.


Let the debate begin! Add more if they really piss you off.

Lot's of good ones to choose there.

The Bowflex commercials are just annoying now; way too common.

Matthew Lesko is a damn fraud. I'm surprised he is allowed to say the stuff he says.

All male-enhancement commercials are crap.

So are the scooter commercials (luckily I don't watch TV in the morning). I suppose you could also put the Liberty Healthcare/Diabetes guy in this category.

I think all drug commercials nowadays are infomercials and piss me off to no end.

Billy Mays isn't that annoying compared to the ones I listed above.
I love ASO!

Would have to agree with that. I've seen one of his books before-- and many of the "leads" that he offers are 1time-only type things or woefully outdated. I don't see how selling that to people can be legit.

AARRRGGG!

Some of these make you want to throw your television out the window!

The ones I dislike the most are:

Anything with Billy Mays, the ultimate infomercial whore! Just the mention of his name makes me shudder!

Matthew Lesko - The most irritating of all! His voice alone make me cringe.

Tony Little- Much too happy for his own good. Why is he stuck in the 70's with that ponytail? Somebody PLEASE cut it offf of his head!

Those Enzyte commercials are just plain stupid with that odd grin Bob has. I have never known ANY guy to stand around "admiring" the CONFIDENCE another man has by having a bigger you-know-what. If you don't have confidence only because you are not monsterly endowed, then you have problems that a enhancement pill can't cure. But I have heard that women sometimes get breast implants to have more confidence. It seems like a female type of thing.

One not listed: Those Hoveround commercials with that lady singing "You Made Me Love You". Most people are not
singing because they need an wheelchair to get around.


And of course the thing that bugs me the most is when you have a commercial come on during one of the shows you are watching, you flip the channels multiple times to only find commercials playing on other stations at the same time.
What do these stations do? Confer with each other so they all have commercials scheduled at the same times?

While Ms. Cleo had some scrapes with the law due to misrepresentation of her psychic abilities, she never was indicted with a crime nor served any jail time.
Here is an interesting read about her:

10. Enzyte Male Enhancement

I'm sure you'll be glad to read this then:

Enzyte Maker Found Guilty of Fraud

5 days ago

CINCINNATI (AP) — A federal court jury on Friday found the owner of a company that sells "male enhancement" tablets and other herbal supplements guilty of conspiracy to commit mail fraud, bank fraud and money laundering.

Steve Warshak, whose conviction was reported Friday by The Cincinnati Enquirer, is founder and president of Berkeley Premium Nutraceuticals, which distributes Enzyte and a number of products alleged to boost energy, manage weight, reduce memory loss and aid restful sleep.

Television ads for Enzyte feature "Smiling Bob," a goofy, grinning man whose life gets much better after he uses the product, which allegedly boosted his sexual performance.

Warshak, 40, could face more than 20 years in prison and his company could have to forfeit tens of millions of dollars.

Messages seeking comment from Warshak's Boston attorney Martin Weinberg and Assistant U.S. Attorney Anne Porter were left at their offices Friday night.

I think Joe Francis is in a Nevada slammer and wants to stay there because as soon as he gets out, he'll be shipped off to a Florida prison, which I guess he wants to avoid for some reason. My guess is that he doesn't want somone's "pan-handle" in him.
