Ian moved to the States back in January, and we've been staying with my parents.  My dad leaves the TV on when he's at home, so Ian began his crash course in American daytime TV.  One day, an ad came on for Comfy Seat.  He was TOTALLY FASCINATED.  A whole new world of marketing unfolded before his eyes.

He started looking at a subreddit devoted to animated gifs of people from infomercials basically ruining everything.  We started talking and joking and the rest is kind of a blur. I think the song was his idea originally. Basically, we went into some kind of shared coma and when we came to there was a premiere project file and over 100 infomercials on my computer. I cannot remember who said "omg lets send it to premiere".  I remember demanding the credits had a phone number, and a price.

The actual editing was about two short evenings.  We worked in passes.  I can recall moments like "NO! MORE TRAGIC!" and "Well, Melina does say she likes getting lighter vids for Premieres".  And giggling.  Lots of giggling.

And guys:  Towels are really difficult. I think all of us have been there.

Lol, the idea of an "infomercials fandom" cracks me up, and the vid itself does too. :) I especially love the credits fitting into the theme at the end.

thank you! I had to insist on a phone number. It wouldn't be an infomercial without one.

(Also YAY! Reginald icon!)

Amazing pairing of song and visuals! I may never hear the song the same way again.

Thank you! It came up, and suddenly it just seemed so obvious.

brb loling forever. This is some genius work right here. :)

Oh man, life is so hard and this vid so perfectly captures why. ;) My favorite parts were the impossible towel and the happy old guy at the end, but I have to give you a shout-out for including the Tiddy (that's T-I-D-D-Y) bear.

Old guy is basically the reason the vid happened. Ian was very taken with him.

And YES THE TIDDY BEAR. They have to know. They know, right?!

I love this on a fannish level, of course, but also in a personal "real life" way, which added to my enjoyment.

thanks! Important people like us don't have the time to just *wait* to microwave two plates.

OH MY GOD this was LIFE-FULFILLING. I cannot EVEN with how much I love this. (And what the HELL was that hair spinny thing?! It looked like something you shouldn't be doing with fans and hair!)

Real thing I really said to my friends while watching the streaming Premieres vidshow for the first time: "this vid is like a sonnet!"

Because it is! With a perfect turn at the ninth line! A sonnet about towels and microwaves and ... whatever that hair thing is.

This is literally one of the best things I've ever seen. I can't believe you guys came up with the idea and then ACTUALLY did it and made it SO SO FUNNY! I mean the towel!!! The guy pointing at the computer! Ahhhh best last shot and I freaking love those credits, just so perfect. The ridiculousness of the infomercials is even more so when seen all together and yet, life IS HARD dammit. Basically I love this vid and was so happy you made it and surprised us all :)

This video is amazing.

ahahaha, this was awesome!
