Last August, BrandFreak's T.L. Stanley called the Shake Weight infomercial "the most unintentionally obscene product demo ever" and speculated that "plenty of non-females with no interest in toning their triceps are ogling this clip." Now, Saturday Night Live has also taken note of the, uh, unintended implications of the ad. A fake informercial that aired on last week's show advertises a DVD of the Shake Weight spot for men's private viewing. Personally, I don't understand what everyone's talking about. This looks like a fine way to tone the arms, and it probably does a good job on the hands, too.
