Shake Weight for Men: The Most Homo-Erotic Infomercial of All Time

A few months back I wrote about the commercial for the Shake Weight, a device for toning arms whose motion is rather suggestive of a more explicit action.

Now the manufacturers of that product have come out with the Shake Weight for Men and the ad is even more unnerving. The Shake Weight for Men infomercial features shirtless, sweaty, muscular men performing what looks like a lewd act.

If you were channel surfing and caught this commercial at, say, 1:19, wouldn’t you assume you had wandered onto some gay porn pay-per-view channel?

I’m sure many people who stumbled upon the ShakeWeight for Men ad changed the channel so quickly they never realized it was really a commercial for a piece of exercise equipment.

  • Y’know, they could have put some handles on the sides of this thing and it would have worked just as well without looking so ridiculous. Hell the side handles could be remniscent of a jackhammer or something, anything manlier than this!

  • When they cut to the first shirtless dude using the shake weight, I audibly gasped. It was just so unexpectedly…lewd. What the hell is wrong with me?!

    The worst thing is that I love NBA TV and I think this commercial plays the most of any other on that channel. *Takes another shower*

  • LOL, that’s not even the lewd version: (2 minute alternate version) (3 minute extended alternate version)

    The grunts and facial expressions make it so much worse (or better depending on viewer’s preference :P) XD

  • The shake weight is gender-specific?!
