Shake Weight...are you kidding me

The Tour de France just started on July 3rd on the Versus Network. During the many many commercial breaks they began airing ads for The Shake Weight for Men.
I thought it was a joke ad and expected the Energizer Bunny to roll through at any minute...the bunny never came! It wasn't a joke. This is a real product.
I couldn't stop laughing at the ad (especially when they break it down in slow motion). People are going to buy this, use it for a few weeks and then wonder why they're not "getting ripped" as promised. The Shake Weight will then be retired to the same closet as the Ab Rocker and Thigh Master.
Here is a link to the product site (WFS):

Too many reps will make you blind.

Re: Shake Weight...are you kidding me

Just like all fitness products sold on tv the best features are if it is small...of can be folded up and put under the bed...so atleast the huge waste of money isnt staring you in the face!

Oh, the women's model has been out for awhile, and the commercial for it is even more borderline obscene...if that's possible.

Re: Shake Weight...are you kidding me

I can imagine it'll get your heart rate up for a bit...but really? I hope you're convincing her to try CrossFit...then maybe she won't consider the Shake Weight to be a good workout.
