Yes, the recycled soda was exactly the part that made my jaw drop. I know someone out there is doing this. That is just sick and wrong.

How can they possibly make a profit by selling it for 20, putting in 3 free 'towels' and then giving another set free? :Shrug:

I never know how much to trust these kinds of commercials. "Too good to be true" sort of thing.

Because all 4 items cost 20 cents to make in a hellhole slave labor factory in China

It was like any other sham wow commercial. At least it didn't have the weird-creepy looking guy on the commercial like all the other ones.

This guy creeps me out for some reason. He just seems so sleazy!

I always picture him as Prostitute Guy now, ever since he was busted for prostitution.

I think he was busted in Miami for beating up a prostitute when she bit his mouth and gave him a fat, bloody lip. If I wasn't so lazy I'd find a source for that encounter and link to it here...

That's how I get people to do my dirty work, by claiming to be too lazy to do it myself. :D

Great, alley, I'm going to have nightmares. That guy is incredibly...greasy. He, um, lives the image of the, um, slick salesman.

He kind of looks like Johnny Knoxville. I think it's the menacing eyes.

But can you drink what you wring out of it?

A guy I knew some years ago sold water purifiers. As part of his demonstration, he'd piss into a cup, or offer anyone else to, and pour it into the device, and out would come the cleanest water you'd ever seen. It was like a magic trick. Then, to everyone's astonishment, he'd gulp down the purified waste and act like it was the sweetest nectar to ever pass his lips.

He was a hell of a salesman and ended up making a fortune selling those damn things.

I just saw this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=st3nmjTJmVk) on tv last night. Was definitely interesting combined with the horrible flu and vomiting.
