The Hawaii Chair

Has anyone seen this ridiculous gizmo? Anyone own one? Ellen demo'd it on her show today. Was pretty freakin' hilarious.

The guys on Attack of the Show on G4 TV ordered 2 of them. They are going to have a 30-day weight loss challenge.

agree that the thing is lame and hilarious, but Ellen is overacting on that thing. All she has to do is put her feet down and she will be a lot more stable.

Exactly. You're not going to get a workout without having your feet down, because then you're just spinning around with no friction.

Interesting use of the word "mancrush". I guess it fits.

They need the people who make the Sybian to hehehehe upgrade that chair. I'd "work out" on it then.

Did you catch the show yesterday? Yeah, she had fun trying to stay on the chair. She was using a "spread leg" stance that was... interesting to watch. At least she didn't re-dislocate her shoulder.
