Pump Up the Dr Ho Neck Comforter

Do you long for the sleek elegant look of a giraffe? Have you ever seen the neck rings worn by members of primitive tribes and thought, “That sure does look relaxing!”

If so, then Dr. Michael Ho has the product for you. The Dr-Ho’s Neck Comforter is an inflatable device you wrap around your collar and inflate with air to stretch out your neck muscles.

This innovation comes from the same medical entrepreneur who gave us the Dr. Ho Muscle Massager. This infomercial isn’t nearly as interesting as his previous one, but the Neck Comforter is an excellent fashion accessory that will go great with your Snuggie.

Here is the intro to the infomercial:

And here Dr. Ho performs a classic demo on a bowling ball. Then hostess Donna Ho asks him, “Will my head pop off?”

  • OK, I have heard more than my share of absurd rhetorical questions on infomercials, but “Will my head pop off?” is the hands-down, head’s down, winner. It’s a question I doubt anyone in the audience was wondering…

  • I believe Dr. Ho also sold a colon cleansing product called “Dr. Ho’s Ab-Trimmer”. I saw part of an infomercial for it on a Sunday roughly one and a half years ago but never noticed it again and slowly forgot about him until now. Maybe the competition from Klee Irwin was just too tough.

  • Yes, it is corny. Too bad it isn’t marketed in a serious way. Trust me though…if you had a herniated disk in your neck and traction was your only relief, you’d be GLAD to have one.

  • I was recently diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in the cervical spine and I bought this product a couple of years back as I often have neck pain and stiffness and I have to say its a godsend for neck problems like mine. It acts like a neck brace when inflated and feels so relaxing even if its not such a good look ..who cares?

  • It’s funny how he hires his sister to host his infomercials. I can imagine what the situation was a few weeks before the filming of his first one:

    Dr. Ho:
    “Aw, drat. No auditions for the host of my infomercial yet? No Forbes Riley? No Vince Offer? No Billy Mays? No Mimi Umidon? ”

    *Donna walks in*
    “Hey broth-”

    Michael:
    “Hey Donna, wanna do something for your favorite brother?”

    Donna:
    “I told you I’m not testing out that darn massage thing agai-”

    Michael:
    “No, no, this is different! I want you to host my infomercial! You’re young and attractive! With you and a few models, my infomercials will only be one or two steps away from an Extenze commercial, or better yet, a Tom Vu commercial!”

    Donna:
    “Uh… okay. But you’d better give me 40% of what you make. And I’d better be fully clothed in each one. Ugh… creepy.”
