When some people ask me what my major is they tend to get very vocal and decide to tell me their opinion about advertising and that it’s a terrible thing. One point that they always bring up; infomercials. This made me think, are infomercials good or bad for advertising?

In my opinion, I don’t think infomercials are bad for advertising. I think that some are very cheesy, but when you step back and look at them, people actually buy the stuff that infomercials are selling. For instance, The Snuggie, I see so many people now with The Snuggie, and don’t even get me started on how many friends of mine have the Roomba vacuum cleaner and The Magic Bullet- “Taking up no more space on the counter than a coffee mug, this convenient mixing system replaces a food processor, blender, and coffee grinder.”  Not only do I think infomercials are good for advertising in that it works, but they’re hilarious!

Watch this infomercial, the acting is absolutely hilarious.
