You understand that it pulls the toxins right out through the bottom of your feet right?

I think both. Look at the commercial again (I'm about to do the same!).

Yes, and they pay a lot of money to believe it.

If somebody is dumb enough to buy it, they will be smart enough to sell it.

Holy Shit!!! Though, strangely enough, he's still not as hairy as Robin Williams.

Though, I wonder. If it does actually work (which it more than likely doesn't), what would happen if someone got how it worked confused with the commercial for HeadOn and tried to apply it to their forehead. And if it actually worked (probably not), I wonder if that would result in a shitload of toxins and chemicals being pulled right through your head. That would be funny, if that did work, and it resulted in a massive chemical imbalance in the brain, causing the person to go utterly insane (though I would question the sanity of ANYONE buying infomercial shit) or killing them.

Is that what's causing the smell in my sneakers? Toxins! Where's my credit card?!

There was a special on 20/20 or Primetime....whichever is on abc, this past friday. It was all nonsense. It didn't work or do anything. It did turn black but it also turned black when they poured water on the pad. So they said it had something in the pad, metals and what not, that would react with your sweat on the bottom of the feet and turn the pad black.

I really prefer "Secrets of the Orient", but that'll do in a pinch.

It's on their website. Stuff like tar, mercury, lead...

That's the rub, right? Convincing people that their body is full of "toxins" that the body can't already effectively remove?

As Kirk would say,

"I don't want my foot toxins taken away! I need my foot toxins!"

It's on their website. Stuff like tar, mercury, lead...The commercial had a hilarious graphic about this. There was a list of like 20 "toxins" with the heading "Before footpad treatment," and "yes" was written next to every single one. Then a new chart appeared titled "After footpad treatment" and there was a "no" after every toxin. They have proof!

Yeah, I had the same thought (and thread) last week, Ben. I'm still blown away that people will actually pay good money to be swindled. I think I need to come up with some ingenius scam myself here.
