  • - Call now for a very special offer
  • on a very stupid product.
  • - Let's talk about that.
  • (alarm rings) (playful theme music)
  • (fire blasts)
  • Good Mythical Morning.
  • - Everybody's got those days where they drink
  • a 6 p.m. espresso and then binge a season of Bojack.
  • Now it's 3 a.m. and their mind is racing because
  • they said, "You too," when that cute ticket taker said,
  • "Enjoy your movie," yesterday.
  • - (chuckles) And the best way to combat
  • late night restlessness is with
  • some trashy paid programming. - That's right.
  • - But what is the worst of the worst when it comes to
  • as seen on TV ads?
  • - The Mythical team has trudged through the annals of time
  • to uncover the most ridiculous as seen on TV products,
  • and we're gonna decide which one's the dumbest.
  • It's time for Ranked: Worst As Seen On TV Products.
  • Mythical team member Stevie, Christine, Jordan, and Emily
  • are going to be presenting as seen on TV products
  • along with the ads that they come with.
  • - Yeah they're gonna make their argument
  • and then we're going to rank them and award the worst
  • as seen on TV product of all time.
  • All right Jordan, why don't you go first?
  • - So I've got the Wax Vac,
  • which is a space blaster for ear wax.
  • - [Announcer] We all know we shouldn't use cotton swabs
  • to clean or dry our ears.
  • Wax Vac is quiet, listen.
  • See how gently it vacs water and dirt,
  • leaving your ears clean and dry.
  • You just empty it out when you're done.
  • Stop using other ear cleaners that don't work,
  • and stop using cotton swabs that can damage your ears.
  • - Ow! (laughing)
  • - Ow!
  • - Such a great piece of infomercial over acting.
  • - Ow! - Ooh,
  • I have to drain this pasta, whoa, my house is on fire!
  • It's just like, all right.
  • Yes, this is from the folks at Hampton Direct.
  • It pulls dirt particles and moisture out of the ear
  • with gentle suction.
  • It's cordless, costs $9.99.
  • - So it shoves water in and then sucks it out?
  • - Does it take water out?
  • It puts water in and then takes it out?
  • - Oh no, it takes water out, no,
  • it gently draws moisture and debris.
  • I was confused, I was like, there's no tank on it.
  • - Should we put water in though?
  • - No.
  • You actually have a little-- - There's moisture in there.
  • - [Stevie] Ew.
  • - [Rhett] There's a little, oh, there's a little black piece
  • that went right in there.
  • - Ew. - What?
  • - Yeah, you had a little black piece.
  • - Oh, push harder. - Ow!
  • - Deeper.
  • Deeper, deeper, deeper.
  • - [Rhett] That's as deep as it goes, man.
  • - Push it, man.
  • Push it.
  • - Should we leave? - This makes me feel
  • very, very uncomfortable.
  • And that's as far as it goes.
  • - I like this one.
  • It feels good, you try it.
  • - No I'm not using that. - No no no.
  • - Clean it. - I need my own Wax Vac.
  • - Wait, I wanna see what is in--
  • - Okay let's see if it got anything, is there like a tank?
  • - Yeah, you have to empty it over a sink.
  • - Don't you see?
  • - Jordan, did you try this?
  • - Not on my ear but I can confirm that it feels great
  • on the human nipple.
  • (laughing)
  • - Did you wash it after?
  • - Oh look, look-- - No.
  • - That's the black thing that was in your ear, look at it.
  • - What is that black thing? - I don't know,
  • there was a black thing. - Oh man, I think--
  • - Well to me this is a great produce, so why is this bad?
  • I mean, it feels great, it sucks hard.
  • We're good to go, right? (Rhett laughs)
  • - Sure, yeah.
  • Maybe this is a great product. - It's great.
  • So I'm putting this, I don't wanna put it at four,
  • but maybe I'm just weird.
  • - Yeah well that is affirmative.
  • All right next up is Stevie.
  • - How about an egg scrambler for ya?
  • - [Rhett] How 'bout it?
  • - [Announcer] Do you scramble eggs like this?
  • You never get a perfectly blended egg,
  • and then there's the cleanup.
  • But now there's the egg scrambler.
  • It scrambles an egg while it's still in the shell.
  • The egg scrambler perfectly blends the egg white
  • and yolk in only five seconds.
  • - Okay.
  • - It's true! - That sounds amazing.
  • - So this is the Egg Scrambler from the 1970s
  • from Ronco. - Ron Popeil.
  • - Oh!
  • - And it's a little vibrating needle that
  • pierces the egg shells, scrambles the egg inside.
  • In the 70s, it was $7.77.
  • We paid $50 for it on eBay.
  • You know what's weird though is that I remember
  • a commercial from when I was young like in the late 80s
  • and from what I remember,
  • the camera's pushing down a hallway
  • and there's a closed door and you hear a vibration sound
  • and you cut back to a closeup of this husband and he's like,
  • "Honey?" and then you keep going towards the door
  • and she's like, "Oh yeah!"
  • And then he opens the door and then she's there
  • with her Egg Scrambler and she's just like,
  • "It's my Egg Scrambler," and he's like, d'oh,
  • and he looks at the camera.
  • - D'oh. - Yeah.
  • - Are you sure you didn't just dream that?
  • - Yeah no, I made all of that up,
  • but it would have been a better commercial than what we saw.
  • - Let's try it.
  • - Wait so she's using the egg scrambler in her bedroom?
  • - Yes she is. - Sensual ad.
  • - [Emily] She brought it as a cover up.
  • - Okay now I'm gonna do it, I'm gonna do it, guys.
  • I'm gonna try it.
  • So I know that you pierce the egg first.
  • - [Link] Oh gosh.
  • I would-- - Oh!
  • - It's on there. - It's on there,
  • and then you press down.
  • Oh man.
  • Ooh!
  • - My question is not whether this works, it's why?
  • - I feel like you could use this as
  • a ear wax remover as well.
  • - Oh, with the needle in there.
  • - All right the moment of truth.
  • We're gonna see if it actually scrambled.
  • - Well I think it does scramble, but--
  • - Hold on, but that felt good, I will say that.
  • As the only person who was touching it
  • while it was happening, it felt good.
  • (taps egg)
  • - [All] Whoa!
  • - It works! - Whoa, that is amazing!
  • - Wow!
  • - Well they wound up discontinuing it 'cause people
  • started sharing needles.
  • (laughing)
  • - Now I just don't know why.
  • I mean, well-- - Here's what I'll say.
  • It's pretty cool if it's actually more trouble
  • than just putting a bunch of eggs into a bowl
  • and scrambling them. - Yeah.
  • - Cleaning up eggs is like kind of one of
  • the easiest things, they come right off with water.
  • - [Link] That is a very consisted scramble.
  • - Oh they got you with the consistency.
  • - Yeah like scrambling an egg is like the first thing
  • you learn how to do when you're learning how to cook.
  • I feel like if you had a machine in your house
  • that was just for Top Ramen, it's like you don't need that.
  • - Absolutely.
  • - It could make a good candy bowl though,
  • and when someone reaches in they're like (mimics buzzing).
  • Got ya. (laughing)
  • - It could make a good torture device.
  • You put your eye on it. - Oh.
  • - [Link] I'm putting this at two, what do you think?
  • - Yeah I really don't need help scrambling my eggs
  • and I'm more than a little bit afraid of that needle,
  • so yes, it is a worse product.
  • Next up we got Christine. - Hey.
  • So this is Wonder Arms, a total arm workout system.
  • - [Link] Okay.
  • - [Announcer] Listen up ladies.
  • Are your arms and shoulders saggy, flabby and out of shape?
  • Isn't that the one area you could never find
  • a solution for?
  • - This right here, it ain't sexy.
  • - That is my chicken wing.
  • - This is the fat.
  • - A little schnitzel right here.
  • That's what I'm not a big fan of.
  • - [Announcer] Introducing Wonder Arms,
  • the breakthrough fitness sensation
  • that all women are talking about.
  • - All women? - All women.
  • I know, they're like, listen up, ladies.
  • We're all like uh-huh.
  • I'm listening.
  • - What was the audition process for that commercial?
  • You just step in the room like, look at that!
  • - Like a lot of double waving.
  • (Emily laughs)
  • I don't know, I feel like this product,
  • the action that you achieve in the muscles
  • that it worked could be done with anything,
  • like reaching for things, right, it doesn't--
  • - Well Link you tell me, are you feeling your triceps?
  • - A little bit, I am. - Your biceps.
  • - It looks like a replica like Legolas Lord of the Rings bow
  • that I got at Comic Con.
  • - Whoa! - Oh my goodness.
  • - No! - Dangerous.
  • - Look at that. - That's not advised.
  • - That's exciting.
  • - Well you're supposed to feel your triceps,
  • your biceps, your shoulders, your chest, your back and more.
  • Do you feel more?
  • - I feel a little pain where it hit me in the wrist.
  • - Did you let go of that on purpose?
  • - Yeah I was doing the Legolas.
  • It was a good idea it seemed like.
  • - Thank you.
  • - Oh there's a beginner, intermediate and an advanced band.
  • You're currently on the intermediate band.
  • - Let's see if I can get a burn going
  • while you try to convince me this is, oh good,
  • it's dangerous once you get-- - Yeah I feel like
  • you could just row a boat instead.
  • - Did that woman-- - Who's got a boat?
  • (laughing)
  • That's the simpler version of this?
  • You just buy a boat. - Simply buy a boat.
  • - Try it. - Did the woman call her arm
  • a shitzel?
  • - Schnitzel. - A schnitzel.
  • - But a schnitzel is like a thin piece of fried chicken.
  • - Yeah, that's what it looked like. (chuckles)
  • - She's very, very specific in her body dysmorphia.
  • - I don't know-- (laughing)
  • - It's like what does it look like?
  • (groans) So much shame.
  • - I think there's some fellas who date ladies out there
  • who like a thick arm.
  • I like, you know?
  • - You like a thick arm. - I like a thick arm.
  • - You like a little schnitzel.
  • - I like a little schnitzel for lunch.
  • - [Christine] A little chicken wing?
  • - Have a nibble on your schnitzel.
  • - [Jordan] Add a little sauerkraut.
  • - (laughs) Eat my shitzel.
  • - Think of all the other words they used
  • before they landed on schnitzel.
  • - The fact is, there are many ways to tone your arms.
  • - Can I get your head? - That don't involve,
  • like potentially injuring yourself with shards of plastic.
  • This is stupid.
  • - And this isn't replicating any particular,
  • you could go to a gym and go to every machine
  • and this would not be an exercise that you would do.
  • - That's an argument for this being--
  • - Hey, we're filling the white space
  • in the arm exercise market. - So you think it's good?
  • - I'm getting a little, my chai-ceps.
  • (laughing)
  • I found new muscles, that's what more is.
  • It's your chai-ceps.
  • - That's the muscle you work out when you take
  • your chai tea from Starbucks.
  • - So you're saying this is good,
  • and I felt a little burn.
  • - I'm saying that if you did this and nothing else,
  • I mean you might get swole.
  • But I think you gotta do it more than minutes a day,
  • we're talking hours.
  • - But you could just use the resistant band
  • without the actual machine and get the same result, right?
  • - I don't know, Christine.
  • - No, nothing, Christine.
  • Nothing at all. - Doesn't feel the same.
  • - It's at number four.
  • - But I think we could all agree that sometimes
  • a schnitzel arm is beautiful.
  • (all clapping)
  • - Yes. - Especially on
  • a single mother.
  • - Oh. - Oh yes.
  • - [Jordan] And a first responder.
  • (laughing)
  • - All right Emily, what do we have?
  • - Oh boy, it's Rejuvenique.
  • It's an electric mask you willingly put on your face
  • to fix your stupid face.
  • - [Announcer] In essence, Rejuvenique does for the face
  • what exercise does for the body,
  • and the way it does that is there's a control unit
  • that during a facial session actually sends an impulse
  • up to the zones in the mask,
  • and actually activates the face and skin
  • to exercise, tighten and tone.
  • - [Announcer] These impulses start in the forehead
  • facial zone and about every 20 seconds,
  • automatically move one zone at a time through each
  • of the 12 facial zones.
  • - Oh my.
  • - Okay, Emily, tell us some more.
  • (screams)
  • Oh goodness.
  • - Wow! - Yeah.
  • You really make yourself look beautiful for the Purge.
  • (laughs)
  • - [Emily] We'll say this, I couldn't fit any fava beans
  • or Chianti in this tiny mouth hole.
  • Zero stars!
  • (laughing)
  • I'm gonna take, it smells like a bitter divorce in here.
  • - Oh gosh.
  • I'll take it. - Here you go, guys.
  • Woo, all right so that commercial is actually from 1999.
  • - What? - Wow.
  • - First of all, show 'em the inside of this.
  • Look at that, it's just a bunch of thumb tacks.
  • - Does my face look like Hellraiser just like
  • made out with me, or what happened?
  • It just imprinted? - No you look all right.
  • Give us some more info here.
  • - All right cool, so it delivers nine volt
  • electronic impulse gold plated facial cushions
  • electrocuting your face just to like revitalize
  • and work out your facial muscles.
  • - [Link] It's got a phone with it.
  • - Yeah you could. - Can you hear me?
  • - [Rhett] Yes.
  • - I'm about to turn this thing on.
  • - [Rhett] Oh it hurts.
  • - It does, a little bit.
  • - One's right into your eyebrows.
  • - [Christine] Beauty is pain.
  • - So there's a pulsation control that goes from on to 10,
  • and then I'm gonna press start so, I'm turning it on.
  • - [Rhett] Oh I heard a noise.
  • - And I'm gonna press start. - Oh no.
  • - And that's on two, going to four,
  • going to six.
  • You feel anything? - Hold on, turn it.
  • Just slowly go to eight.
  • - Eight-- (Rhett groans)
  • (laughing)
  • - You look like the phantom of the soccer moms.
  • (grunting dramatically)
  • - Stop it, stop it.
  • I mean I'm choosing to believe that you're faking,
  • but it's on 10.
  • - [Rhett] I'm not feeling anything except
  • a little embarrassment.
  • - You know if it doesn't work, you could at least use it
  • for what to do with your face when people
  • talk about matcha or sports.
  • That's what I want it for.
  • - Just put it on--
  • - [Rhett] I've gotta do my treatment now.
  • - Tell me more about Bitcoin.
  • - (grunts) Exactly. (laughs)
  • - [Rhett] I'm not feeling anything.
  • - You're not feeling anything? - You're into crystals now.
  • Cool. - I don't hear it.
  • - Those spiky things just hurt, man.
  • There's no electricity and even if there is,
  • it's nine volts.
  • I mean, what is that doing?
  • It's not doing anything.
  • It's not rejuvenating anything, Linda Evans.
  • - It just looks creepy.
  • - Linda Evans is doing something right.
  • She's a beautiful woman, a beautiful older gal.
  • - Well I think this might be a mask.
  • - Oh okay. - Okay, so--
  • - It looks very mask-like. - At this point, let's decide,
  • because the number one slot is open.
  • Is this worthy of the worst as seen on TV product?
  • - Well it doesn't work.
  • I think it would scare your family.
  • Yeah, in my mind, the Rejuvenique is the most useless,
  • worst as seen on TV product that we have seen today.
  • - It is ugly, it is stupid, it's scary, it doesn't work.
  • - But if you wanna attract Jason Voorhees,
  • I think this is a hot commodity.
  • - There you have it, Linda Evans.
  • You've sponsored the worst product as seen on television.
  • - The definitive list.
  • Thanks for liking, commenting and subscribing.
  • - You guys say, "You know what time it is."
  • - [Crew] You know what time it is.
