Seriously, what kinda perv invented this, then made a beyond ambiguous commercial? You mean NOBODY stopped to think 'Uh, that doesn't look quite right.'

Re: Listen up all you skinny nerds, here's what you need

Whenever I see these things in stores I become annoyed. I'm not sure why. I used to weightlift on a regular basis (Oh, I've been naughty this year.) and none of the women in those videos developed THOSE arms with that stupid thing.

Great thread, no thanks to the OP, who apparently just got on the internet for the first time.

So, it's a tool for exercising one set of muscles only? The animation makes it look like it would give you carpal tunnel problems.

Well, it's an anthropological fact that male wrists have "special muscles" which females don't have.

Re: Listen up all you skinny nerds, here's what you need

my wife's response was better than the video.

I had her watch it, and after she said in a very monotone voice "that's fake right?".

HAHAHAHA

Re: Listen up all you skinny nerds, here's what you need

This is still my pick for most unintentionally suggestive product of all time:

<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/YdAIt4MgnHc?fs=1&hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/YdAIt4MgnHc?fs=1&hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>
