Awful Products as Seen on TV: Shake Weights

Hello, ladies!  If you're like me, you're looking for a revolutionary way to shape and tone your arms.  Why shouldn't you have strong, sexy, sculpted arms which you're proud to show off?  Well now you can, with Shake Weights.  There's only one problem.  Using the Shake Weights in a public setting might be rather... embarrassing.

Watch he original Shake Weights commercial below.  What does the motion created by the patented "Dynamic Inertia" technology remind you of?  Please also take note of the noise that the Shake Weights make when in use.

Apparently I am not the only one with a dirty mind.  Below is a parody of the Shake Weights commercial, which is simply the actual commercial overdubbed with new audio stating the obvious.

In order to make this posting more "mom friendly," (really just in case my own mother ever reads this) I would like to submit this clip from the Ellen Show.  Ellen loves Shake Weights, and regularly hands them out to guests.  She has wryly observed that the Shake Weights work out "muscles I have never used in my life."

Oh, and don't be jealous, fellas.  They now sell "Shake Weights for Men."  No thanks.
