Magic Bullet Infomercial

Let's revel in the absurdist masterpiece known as the "Magic Bullet" infomercial.

Surely you remember the ad - a few years back, it ran virtually every hour of the day on some channel somewhere. Ostensibly a straight-forward commercial for a blender - it quickly devolves into some kind of half-assed sitcom with broad "characters" including Berman the lovable drunk, and Hazel the crusty old bag (above).

There is a site on the web that loves the commercial even more than I do. They even sing the praises of its equally oddball sequel - which I've sadly never seen. You can watch the entire infomercial, or just the highlights (with separate video tributes to Hazel and Berman).
