Kush and Shake Weight Commercials: Believe It or Not!

When I saw the video of the Kush commercial online, I absolutely refused to believe this thing was anything other than an infomercial parody. When I saw the URL displayed in the ad, I declared that even if there were a website there I would still be convinced the whole thing was an elaborate prank.

But after investigation, I am forced to admit that the commercial and its product are for real. (The ghetto production values of the video don’t exactly help make this more believable.)

I never knew that large breasts were such an impediment to women getting a good night’s sleep. And this commercial could have really benefited from the vocal talents of Billy Mays: “Ladies, do you hate sagging titties? Hi, Billy Mays here for the Kush.”

This product is supposed to offer support for the breasts, yet the name Kush sounds like “tush,” which is a different body part altogether.

Soon after I encountered the Kush commercial, Brian Haas of the Watch This Now blog sent me a video of the Shake Weight, a product which looks rather…uh…suggestive when put into action:

I think Shake Weight would be a fabulous bonus product for the Flirty Girl Fitness stripper-dance workout program. It would be a workout with a happy ending!

  • I just had to comment about your Miss Cleo page but I didnt see a link to allow me do so on that page so here I am. Ur blog is WAYYYYYYY funnie. Im 36 and I remember when those commercials came out and me and my friends just laughed and laughed! I do a better, more consistant Jamacian accent than her. What a joke, but a funnie one! Thanks for posting that info, I truly enjoyed remembering how silly all of that call in tarot reading, etc etc was. Oh do U have any info on why Latoya Jackson line didnt make it? lol like I have to ask.

    Oh and I have to send a special giggle to the shake weight! haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa I had never even heard about that one! And how about the announcer saying it was specially designed for women, um yeahhhh! I like to laugh right out of my chair when i watched that clip!

    Please keep the funny coming, I love infomercials and your comedic spin on them makes it all the better to see. I’ll be trollin around ur site to see what else I can find!

  • It almost looks too big to be comfortable. But if cleavage wrinkles are such a problem (as the product’s site suggests) then I guess I’m glad I sleep on my stomach.

    And that crappy MIDI guitar in the background is inexcusable.

  • I showed the video to my mom who commented that the kush looks like a dildo. Not a word anyone wants to hear escape from their mom’s mouth, but the woman has a point.

    Oh…and the did thought of using a pillow never occur to the inventor of this crap?

  • Do guys even notice girls’ arms? I think that’s the body part I notice the least.

  • WTF? it just gets crazier and crezier what on earth will they come up with next? Jim Carrey’s juiceman looks positively sane compared to this.

  • I saw this apparent infomercial for some kind of deodorant spray that you can spray on your underarms, crotch, behind, or any other stinky part. I thought it was a parody, but apparently it’s real.

    Even if seeing Jupiter Jack commercials with Billy being dead is a bit morbid it’s still not as bad as some of the useless crap others are making.

  • I have to admit that the Kush Support is a pretty good idea. I wear a 32D, and sometimes I do have problems getting to sleep, because maneuvering around my boobs is uncomfortable. But would I pay $55 + S&H for it? Not on the likely…

  • I just got mine the other day and i think it’s amazing, although it looks suggestive, i think once you look past that you can actually realize the potential of the shake weight. i mean i’ve only worked out for 1 minute a day and i seriously can’t go any longer, you feel a burn instantly that it’s beyond belief. i can safely say that IM a shake weight believer!!

  • Thought you might like this parody I did of the Shake Weight commercial.

  • Are you kidding me?! I would love love love to have one of those Kush Support things. Trying to sleep with your boob falling out of your bra is just so uncomfortable. I’ve been wanting a solution to this for a while! I think I might buy one. Sounds great!

  • I would rather have women have some difficulty sleeping on their side, than live in a big breast-free world.

    I also feel that porn has a similar solution for decades (albeit of a less permanent nature), which is akin to what Kush is shown here to be doing.
