Who hasn't seen this ad? I've watched this hilariously bad infomercial so many times, I lost count. From Hazel the chain smoking hag who never ashes her cigarette, to Berman the alcoholic "party animal" who wants to see broccoli banned from the world. Not to mention the blonde lady who keeps shouting the mantra "You can use this every day!!!". Who else loves to hate this ad?

I am strangely fascinated by it myself. I watched the whole thing and then I bought two.

Haven't seen it in quite a while - and I didn't care for it when I did see it.
Honestly, though - the product reviews are GREAT.

Haha, guys, this is too funny. I absolutely love this commercial. It's so bad and stupid it's fantastic.

The food looked so good I bought one myself. It makes damn good dip, although the cleaning isn't as easy as the infomercial proclaims.

Don't forget that the Magic Bullet is a conspiracy theory for the assassination of President Kennedy. That's a great name for a product!

I love commercials, for the most part.

It is the whole backstory and premise of this ad.
It is trying to make you relate and picture some of the moments they hint at.
berman's whacky drinking, Hazel's plucky feistiness..
thing is, who the hell are these people? What an eclectic grouping of friends to invite over let alone the kind to offer a bed to.
Weird sh*t.
Like Nathan I am oft sucked in and I am compelled to purchase them. But they are offered at stores now.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned that there is a certain "feminine pleasure tool" that is also called a "magic bullet".  Yeah, sure its a "neck massager" lolz

OMG!  I am so obsessed with this infomercial!  I've even made Mr. Aleen into a fan, lol.  I love when Hazel complains about "chopping gah-lic" and of course Berman with his "Yuck!  I hate broccoli." line.  But the line that I quote the most is Mick saying, "Uhhh, nachos anyone?" in his Australian accent, "Uhhh, nah-chows anyone?"
 
But have you seen the newest one for the Magic Bullet on the go, or something like that?  They're camping this time, and Berman's there, but they have a new cast of idiots, one of whom refers to guacamole as "that green junk."  But this time, it's implied that Berman and Hazel have been sharing a sleeping bag....Dead  It's a must see, I tell ya!

Oh yes, I've seen it. It's a worthy sequel. Especially with the green junk line and Berman's animosity towards the appliance in the beginning. Not to mention how no one can fathom the thought of a Magic Bullet that runs *gasp* on batteries!

Regardless of how hilariously bad the commercials are, some of my friends have MB's and you can make some really great stuff with one. Approve

I love the GT Express 101 commercials!!!
 
And I want one, too.
 
I'm just not going to order one thru the mail.
 
When they start selling them at WalMart, I'll get one.
 
Until then, I'll just have to dream....
 
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Jimbo, try Walgreens, they have a ton of "as seen on TV" stuff. Maybe even Kohls, I know I've seen a store somewhere that carried the GT Express. I know Kohls has the magic bullet, I sort of want one so I can make hummus, my food processor is too small. Tongue

I'll check it out.
 
The last time I saw the infomercial it still said "Not available in stores" across the screen.

I stand corrected. It wasn't the girl from the Magic Bullet ad who sits next to Berman & never says anything who is now in the Walk Fit shoe insert infomercial.... it's Mimi herself!!!
 
As you can see her here in this "Best of Berman" video...
 
 
And then again in this long version of the Walk Fit infomercial that I hadn't seen before...
 
 
In the ad I saw her in she just appeared for a moment flapping an ordinary shoe insert around while appearing to make sarcastic comments about it though you couldn't actually hear her.
 
I guess she's one of those people who will shill for anything.

Bed Bath and Beyond sells Magic Bullets.  I'm kinda reluctant to get one, but I probably should, seeing as Mr. Aleen and I can never see eye to eye on smoothies!

YES! Together we can take over this board, convert others to place the wild Magic Bullet partiers in their avatars.
