Oh. My. God.

Ok, I am going to skip over the whole looking like a you are trying to jack off a penis gone wild and go straight to the fact that this is total crap. First of all, weight machines are not designed to build big bulky muscle, they are designed to build muscle, period. What makes muscle bulky or not is dependent on how much testosterone you have and how much weight you are lifting. Seeing as this is designed exclusively for women we are back to the whole weight lifitng makes women look like body builders crap that has been debunked time and time again.

This might actually be a good ab workout because you might be laughing so hard at how stupid you look though:)

yeah, one of these got brought to our company christmas exchange. and it was a big hit because most of us there had huddled over someone's computer to watch ad, and so knew that whoever got it had to reenact it.

I didn't watch this commercial, but I know I've seen others targeting men with this device so I don't know about it being designed specifically for women unless they've released a new model onto the market. I think Jon Stewart had a funny bit on his show a month or two ago referencing this item.

Well the video explicitly says that it is designed exclusively for women so I don't know if it is the same product with different advertising or just a different product made for my delicate hands or some bullshit.

There are just so many wrong things going on with this product! Makes me wonder how many they actually sell for more reasons other than office party gag gifts:)
