Infomercial Fails

Rating: 3 out of 5.

The next assignment I decided to complete this week was “Where Did The Soda Go?” for the humorous fails and over-dramatic reactions. I was considering doing something like this for awhile, so I was happy to discover an assignment related to it!

I knew of this infomercial because I saw it a few years ago and thought it was utterly ridiculous. Luckily Google knew what infomercial I was looking for when I did a search for “infomercial where the bowls explode out of the cabinet.” This was the first result! It features a woman going to her kitchen cabinet, opening it, and then it looks like an entire store’s worth of tubberware explodes out at her. I thought this was a perfect example for this assignment because it’s so over-the-top and ridiculous, because I don’t think it’s possible for someone to own that many bowls, let alone fit them in that cabinet! The video was on YouTube, so I copied the URL and pasted it into GIPHY to create a GIF. I made two versions of this GIF, the first which is just a simple loop of the “infomercial fail” and the second slightly edited in a more fitting manor. Both can be found below!

Please take a look and then tell me what you think in a comment down below!
