Guaranteed to Bring Down a Teenage Boy in Seconds Flat
Published on Sunday, March 14, 2010 by

If you follow me on Twitter, you know that the last seven days of my life have been a barforama blowout.  Do all three kids do it at once?   No, that would get everything out of the way too quickly.  My kids chose to spread out the joy for seven glorious days.  If you don’t hear from me tomorrow, you know where I’ll be.

Needless to say, things have been very stressful.  Masks and gloves on and off, buckets cleaned, children calling from room to room.  Sit, then “Mooommmm!”  Clean, scrub, sit.  Then “Moooommmm” from another room.  Please let this END!

This morning, I actually had three kids up and speaking plain English.  Nothing was exiting their mouths but words.  But I was still exhausted, stressed and over it all.  And that is when the commercial came on.

I’m sorry.  The inappropriate overtones of this post are both offensive and just plain wrong.  But I have teenage boys.  And their minds begin in the gutter, going downhill from there.

So there I am, sitting innocently on the bed watching cartoons with my recovering daughter.  My 14 year old son is in the doorway, checking out what we are up to.  Queue THE COMMERCIAL.  In all of two seconds, I am laughing outloud.  And my middle son is screaming through his own laughter, “DAVID!  Get in here NOW!  HURRY!”  “DAAVVIIIIDDDDD!”

David runs in, looks at the commercial and literally falls to the floor.  I mean, he really FALLS TO THE FLOOR.  His face turns red, tears begin to roll down his cheeks and snorting noises fill the room.

I want a Shake Weight.  I want it BAD.  This product falls under the category of “Health Product or Sex Toy.”  Guaranteed to bring down a teenage boy in seconds flat.

ADDENDUM!  Later in the day, one of my boys showed me the following video.  Ladies, you are WELCOME!

  • Ha! They totally had this on The Daily Show. Really, who got drunk and thought of this in the product meeting?
    Good post!

  • You can jiggle as they giggle…

  • Wow…I’m nearly speechless. This was on tv during the cartoon hour? How weird is that? I totally need this functional, versatile piece of wonderfullness. So many uses and you say it tones the arms too? Ok, I can use that. Excuse me I need to go and get my credit card now.

    Hmmm, I wonder where they are showing the men’s commercial? I’ve only seen the womans.

  • I think they should have added KC and the Sunshine band in the background. Shake shake shake, shake that booty, shake that booty……

  • I hope everyone stays healthy. Wow, that commercial was… not sure of the correct adjective here. When if first started, I thought you all had your minds in the gutter, until she started shaking. Once the shaking started, my reaction was OMG. Suddenly I want one.

  • HAHA! You can get the same result from strangling an immovable customer service representative, bad driver or misbehaving child. Regardless if you buy or just enjoy the ridiculousness of it all, it’s a win-win. Let’s hear if for free enterprise, capitalizing on journalists’ fascination with a certain someone’s rite to bare arms.

  • Those really are funny ads and I love that the kids thought that it was all so funny. Just wondering if they were watching the arms. The shaker does look kind of neat. Wonder what it would do for an old lady’s arms. LOL. Thanks for these great facts.

  • Those ads are HYSTERICALLY funny. And I feel just awful for you having to deal with three sick kids over the course of seven days! That HAD to be exhausting! But hey, at least you had brand new fixed toilets to use!

  • Yes,kids love to spread the joy and make it last as l o n g as possible. I’ve got three and they take turns one right after the other. Kind of like a consecutive life sentence. I got the same reaction from my 48 year old kid when he saw this commercial. I wonder how many husbands will by this as a mothers day gift this year?

  • That is beyond funny! I showed it to my son and now I think he’s gone and downloaded the video!

  • They have these for sale now at Target… I tried to play with it, and it’s very odd… I think you burn more calories from laughing at it, than using it 🙂
