Callous Clear

callous clearIt’s 2am here at Midwest Mike’s house and I’m up watching weird TV.  One of the joys of late night TV is the commercials and infomercials that you get to see.  I saw this commercial tonight on the Destination America channel and it immediately rose to the top of the list of most disturbing commercials I have ever seen.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, Callous Clear:



Ok.  First of all.  Who is going to buy a product from a late night TV commercial THAT MAKES YOUR SKIN FALL OFF??????  Did you see that in the commercial?  Here are the instructions for use:

Step 1: rub the “lotion” on your skin.

Step 2: take the scraper thing to slough off patches of your skin that are just falling off.

Step 3: Dial 911

Step 4: Begin to panic.

Step 5: Repeat as necessary to address those real problem areas.

I’m not a doctor, I’m just a TV guy.  But call me crazy.  I just don’t think it’s a good idea to rub lotions on your skin that makes said skin fall off.  Maybe I’m just old-fashioned.  If you have skin on your feet that you would like to treat callously, you can go here to order the product.

    What looks like dead skin in the commercial is actually just dried white (i.e., Elmer’s) glue. People are so gullible. Amazing.
    And really, would you really purchase a product (and worse, use it) whose name is misspelled?
    I have a great Jeap to sell you then. It will go 100 miles per gallon on reglar gaseline (Shel or Philipps 67 preferred). Only $100 plus $26,000 shipping and handling.
    Limited time offer… Better act fast.

      I think they misspelled it on purpose to show that they have a really poor attitude towards dead skin cells.


  3. And they misspelled callus!! Callous means brutal insensitivity.

      Maybe it is unintended genius on their part. Did you see the commercial? That product is sure callous to dead skin cells that’s for sure.
