    Posted: 14 Dec 2008 at 11:57pm

One of the worst products to come along in years, the ad says; "designed with women in mind"

And what is it? Why it's a wide strip of clear tape to keep those joggly arms from waving in the breeze like Billy Mays' recently repaired flag.
 
So far the only video of it is the TV commercial on their website, and as of today it's the only thing on the site, so either it's so new that they haven't had a chance to get  a crappy webpage tossed together, or they are just getting really lazy.
 
 
But when you consider that all they're doing is selling a roll of tape, I guess their level of excitement isn't too high.
 
Although I was thinking it could be used to cover the Glady's mouth...

LOL Wow! I...I...I'm at a loss for words! (think it works on the neck?)
 
Looks like they stole the idea from the movie 'Brazil' (the saran-wrap facelift).
If one looks at the 'Slim Tape for Thighs'; the 'After' pic, you can actually SEE the tape on her legs!
 
Now, I understand most insurance carriers do not cover most cosmetic surgeries, so maybe this is the long-awaited solution for all those self-concious fat-farm rejects. Don't think I could sit at a table and carry on an intelligent conversation with anyone all 'wrapped and ready'Confused
 
Gosh, I love the United States of A!!! There's something for everyone and everyone can simply market about anything.

I am not exactly a fat-farm reject....Ouch...but some of us do have trouble firming up this area of the body.  It seems resistant to all I do.  When I wave "goodbye" my underneath arms still want to keep on with the "farewells".    Angry  I've been very mad at my arms even when I was a skinny teen.  I think this is just another attempt to make people feel badly about what body they've been given.   If you're born with "peasant arms" sometimes there's little you can do other than spend 8 hours a day in the gym.  Feck that!  Got better things to do!! I am gonna die anyway so it's all futile!  Tongue

I thought the tricep was at the back of the upper arm?  That wouldn't be a concern to me as much as the more wiggly part of my lower arm.  As in "waving goodbye" and having it not stop.

I hadn't thought of that, but the end of the commercial ought to have Jonathan Pryce saying; "My God, it really works"

Wha?  They sell tape for this?   Wouldn't duct tape be cheaper and easier to get?

One of the oddest movies I've ever seen.
 
George Orwell meets Monty Python.
 
Robert De Niro as a rogue, outlaw air conditioning repairman!!!! Clap
 
And Mr. Buttle. LOL
 
I loved the computers they used!!!
 
 
Part old fashioned typwriter, part 1950's tube TV, part late 20th century computer.

I think most women's problems in that regard lie with the flab around the tricep area which is impossible to get rid of without surgery.
 
My recommendation to them is simple.
 
Sleeves.

I think some of  these products are targeted towards old people whose minds are starting to fail and will buy anything. My husband's grandfather lost a mint buying stupid crap on QVC in his advanced years and my sister's husband's grandmother had all of this As Seen on TV crap in her nursing home room when she died, including an ab roller. She was 86!
