This infomercial should have been the first warning that America is bored with being wealthy and powerful, which is what happens to empires right before they puke on their shoes and pass out in the gutter. When your society is selling Medieval-looking, spring-loaded mouth braces that promise to make your face look young and beautiful without butchery, then the collective value system is seriously messed-up.
Check out this infomercial for a torture device named the "Facial Flex Ultra." It will tone and condition facial muscles, transforming you from an unhappy crone into an unhappy crone with an aching jaw. Some poor little girl waltzed into her mother's bathroom one afternoon and beheld this living nightmare. The little girl probably froze with fear, as a robot tried to crawl out of her mother's face.
Why don't you buy this horrible device for a loved one, or yourself!
Thanks to Boingboing for revealing this… this… monstrosity.
