I’m not afraid to admit that we do go back; back to Sam Popeil. Yup, that’s Ron Popeil’s father! Popeil’s Pocket Fisherman, Veg-O-Matic and the “Set it and forget it” Rotisserie. And, be honest now. You all have a set of Ginsu knives in the back of a kitchen drawer somewhere. I know I do!
So, for a couple of years there really was nothing to challenge the informercial entertainment dominance of the “What Can You Do in Ten Seconds” Magic Bullet. It was, and still remains, a late-night, half-hour classic.
But wait! There’s More!
Move over Veg-O-Matic.
Move over Chop-O-Matic.
In the style of the elder statesman of pitch men – Heeeeeeer’s Slap Chop!
