Jimmy's newly founded Mafia family was tight on funds so they had to settle on knock-off weapons which didn't quite pack the same punch.

I prefer the idea that he's so confused he loses his accent.

For some reason, that just reminded me of this scene from the Oblongs.

"...that acts like a laser beam!" In what imagination does this act like a laser beam? It's a scrub.

pew pew pew.. did you not see the CG lasers in the ad?

level 4

My apologies, I was unaware I needed lasers to clean my bathroom.

Well now you see why your bathroom is so dirty!

level 6

Pew! Pew! Pew!

level 4

Should have used that clip...

level 3

Reminds me of medicine commercials that use glowing orbs to "explain" how it works. They show a diagram of the problem followed by the medicine just moving to the problem. A flash of light, and bam, the problem is gone. This is like 80% or more of the medicine commercials I've ever seen. It does absolutely nothing to explain how it works, yet it's so consistently there.

level 4

Wait wait, you mean you don't know that pills are compressed super bubbles?

You fool!

level 3

That's why it's a simile.

level 4

Similes require at least one thing that's alike in order to justify the comparison.

level 5

But it says here that it's used to compare 2 unlike things. I thought using like or as while comparing made it a simile.

level 3

A dirt killing laser beam too.

level 3

pcssh,yeah what a scrub

level 2

I love how they add that shine effect so it covers up the fact that it does jack shit

level 3

That was my favorite part too. It’s literally just a white feathered rectangle.

level 2

I no longer feel bad about my bathroom being a bit dirty. Those are some nasty walls.

level 2

Gotta love the classic black and white clips of overly frustrated people who can't figure out simple tasks

level 3

Do... do you know where you are?

That thing is way less dumb than the ad for it. Not overly useful but not complete garbage.

level 3

Good job making yourself feel like less of a idiot for actually buying this. How clean is your grout at the moments?

level 2

Who tf let’s their shower get that nasty before cleaning it anyways?

level 2

That bathroom needs burning, not cleaning.

level 2

But it doesn't work where the grout is perpendicular to a corner...

level 2

The one comment on the video says just use an old toothbrush.

level 2

My favourite part about these commercials, especially ones for spray on cleaning products, is when the actor goes to wipe the stuff off with a paper towel they start way above where it was sprayed and everything gets the same level of clean.

level 2

I wanted one until I realized I could just use the edge of a normal scrub brush or a tooth brush. This might be easier I guess. I've got one of those drop in showers where it's only one or two pieces and made of plastic. I don't know why anyone thought this was a good idea, but they put a fake grout pattern into it, so when I clean it, I have to clean this fake grout and it's a pain because it's thinner than normal grout and still gets dirtier than the fake tile.

The house that I bought has one of those plastic drop-in showers with a low step. It's a shitty design and hard to scrub clean even with no grout or lines. I want to rip it out and put in a proper shower/bathtub but money is tight these days.

level 2

Wow in like each clean shot it looks like they’ve boosted the white point and contrast. Also most of them have just the grout area masked and have the white point/brightness turned to max.

level 2

Even in the source there's no context!

level 2

They couldn't even afford 'grouthero.com'

Smdh

level 2

Man these infomercials always make me laugh watching people do mundane, simple tasks like it's the hardest thing in the world. You don't need anything special for this, you simply need to learn how to use the normal brushes. Apparently all of these people never figured out how to use thumbs.

level 2

So it's a narrow brush that only works for grouting? Great.

level 1

I watched the ad and I'm still confused as to how that shows ergonomics

level 2

Oh yeah? Maybe Paulie and I need to go down there and teach you a lesson.. about cleaning hard to reach soap scum.

level 3

Paulie, don't forget the plastic scrubby knuckles.

level 2

He's able to reach his other hand without resistance. No resistance = ergonomic.

level 2

I think because it, unlike regular boring brushes, has a grip which you can easily hold on to without that dreaded slippery mess (brush users know what I'm talking about). Also the curvature of the design ensures proper fitting against a maximum surface area without any nasty hand-bending exercise.

Pay me bucks now, brush company

level 2

“Alright just sorta do something that shows how soft it is on your hand”

level 2

It's.... uhhhmm... It's because... The lasers! It's like a laser, that's why! Pew pew pew

level 2

Because "ergonomically designed" is a meaningless marketing term. I could claim any product was designed to be ergonomic and there is no objective way to measure that.

level 3

A certain percentage of our products are made from recyclable materials!

Zero's a percent!

level 3

Is that sarcastic? If not, an ergonomics specialist (or probably a kinesiologist, or physical therapist, or physiologist?) may disagree, I think they have lots of ways to measure.

level 4

Don't worry. My company has a certified ergonomics specialist who can confirm that this product was designed to be ergonomic.

"Designed" is the key word here. I can claim my cookies are designed to give you mind shattering orgasms and I'm not lying.

level 5

Hahahaaa ok that makes sense sense

level 4

Now you shush. We've cracked this conspiracy and we're bringing everything down with it!

level 3

I love how this whole ad is just a bunch of dudes incompetently trying to scrub their super-filthy bathrooms until they get a brush that’s like a weapon, marketed as such, complete with pew-pew laser effects.

Aren't brass knuckles illegal?

level 2

Well, I mean they are the mob

level 3

Smooby mob

level 2

Luckily brush knuckles aren't.

level 2

You just sell them as belt buckles, with a little buckle part that easily unscrews.

level 3

It's bad that part of me wonders if this sort of loophole is used anywhere to make something technically legal

level 1

Apply to the hand.

level 1

They're not quite up to the level of the likes of the Vongola yet

level 1

At least they're ergonomically designed

level 2

That part made me more confused than anything. Why do they need to be ergonomically designed? It’s not like it’s a chair or a bed.

level 1

That's a nice face you got there. It would be a shame if it were to receive some...MILD ABRASIONS!

level 1

and yet they cleaned up

Ayyy Vito here take this new piece I gotcha and dun worry bout a thing. A friend was sellin em' cheap but they still work the same.
