Pet Hair Picksy is One Odd Infomercial

Many pitchmen are vying be the next Billy Mays, but I can assure you that the crown will not go to “Judy the Pet Hair Lady” from the Pet Hair Picksy infomercial:

Judy sounds a lot like Julia Child—if Julia Child ever forgot her manners and tried to speak with a mouthful of hot food.

Speaking of manners, what is going on at 0:03?

That woman is being mounted by her dog! I don’t know if the Pet Hair Picksy infomercial will succeed in selling their pet hair brush, but those few seconds of video will have a prolific life on bestiality fetish websites for years to come.

Even more inexplicable is the sneeze that occurs at 1:02. Most infomercials are decent enough to edit out any part where the host is suddenly seized with the urge to violently spray her mucus all over the set. Is this supposed to be some sort of joke about how even just talking about cat hair and heifer hair makes her want to sneeze? Then what are we supposed to make of that post-sneeze clenched-fisted “Whoo”? Is she congratulating herself for doing a kick-ass job of emptying her nasal passages?

Okay, class. For today’s homework assignment, please compare and contrast the performance of Judy the Pet Hair Lady with the Sticky Wicky Lady.

  • Compare: Judy the Pet Hair Lady and the Sticky Wicky Lady both try to sell pet hair removal products. Neither one makes me want to buy the product they’re trying to sell.

    Contrast: Judy the Pet Hair Lady is less overtly obnoxious. The Sticky Wicky Lady doesn’t have to work a sneeze into her pitch.

  • I dont think its a sneeze as much as an involuntary “wooo” from the uncontrolable excitement ol’ lispy judy has about this product. And yes it does sound like her dentures are loose and yet like shes got a mouth full of… something

  • Hilarious! She definitely needs a tube or two of ‘fixodent’ to keep those clacking false teeth from flying out. I’m surprised they didn’t make an exit after that sneeze. I’d love to see her trying to tuck into a slab of “Chef” Tony’s microwaved steak.

  • Listen to her voice at 1:04.
