Last week we brought you the Kinoki Footpad and the TV ad that drives me crazy. Not all infomercials are so stupid. Some sell products with genuine health benefits. I spend a lot of time sitting in front of a computer (like at this moment) so I don't get enough exercise. And my abs? Forget it (bad visual).
But as Mike Huckabee (or was it Bill Clinton) might say, Hope is a Chair called Hawaii:
Ah, but there is also the clip of Ellen DeGeneres who ordered one and tried it on her show. Hilarity ensues.
Thanks for providing the link. I debated with myself whether to put that one or the infomercial but the deGeneres clip is pretty long so I opted for the original only. Glad you gave others the link. It is very funny indeed.
Hey Revere, this thing is FDA registered. What in heck does that mean? Does it mean that it works or that its just there?
The Chair? FDA doesn't regulate consumer products. If it says registered it just means it is registered, not that they showed it was safe and effective. Kinoki Footpads are FDA registered but they aren't FDA regulated (they should be though). They don't do anything as far as I know so there is nothing to show.
No it was the footpads but that explains it. My next door neighbor who is a sherrifs deputy said they bought one of the chairs. Apparently if you sit in it 6 hours a day and its going on the setting 2 you really do develop abs and along your side. You exercise trying to stay in the thing.
Hell yeah, if you were steadying yourself for 6 hours, 5 days a week thats not exercise...its the Chair.
There is no way in hell I could use that chair at work. I can get all the ab work I need by doing isometric exercises and a series of stomach and side ab crunches at home. What a waste of time, money,and energy.
