Use Forearm Forklift to Make a White Trash Kiddie Ride

The new infomercial for Forearm Forklift may be the only ad in which the disclaimer is the most memorable part of the commercial:

So they filmed the Forearm Forklift lifting strap commercial in which almost every example shows a person (mostly kids) sitting on top of the furniture or appliance being lifted. Then someone realized that’s not really a good idea. But rather than reshoot the commercial they simply slapped the disclaimer “Don’t lift people at all” on the screen.

We get to see Forearm Forklifts used to endanger children by an Asian family named the Wangs:

A black family named the Tiptons:

And a white family named the Smiths:

Viewers in Vermont, Manhattan, and Northern California will no doubt be pleased at the Forearm Forklift commercial’s admirable commitment to diversity…at least until they get to this part:

We also get to see the product being used by these people:

A wardrobe consisting entirely of “80s Rocker” Halloween costumes seems like a much more pressing problem for the Clarks than their need to move a cabinet. But it is good to see Alice Cooper getting work again:

It’s also good to see Jon Huntsman getting work these days:

In spite of the disclaimer, Forearm Forklifts will prove quite popular among rednecks looking to create the roller coaster experience for their kids at home.

  • Don’t miss the “crunch” sound effect at 1:03 and the “waah-waah-waah” horn at 1:29. The 80s metalhead outfits aren’t the only thing about this infomercial that’s old school!

  • I had seen this commercial last month on tv, and I was hoping you would feature it. 😀

  • How about a disclaimer for moving a couch while wearing heels?
