I am not really suprised

I am sure a lot of you have seen those Kinoki Foot Pad commercial. If not then watch the video below. I was pretty sure it was BS but I wanted someone to do a study. Penn and Teller were dragging their feet on this one, so NPR took up the reigns. I can now rest easy.

    It all makes sense…. if I get the bad things out of my feet, my health will dramatically improve. I’m sure of it. *sigh* I’m disappointed that anyone would even think to try this. It’s one of those things that makes me believe the human race is doomed.

    Hehe, I love the Kinoki commercial. Every time I see it, I just laugh and laugh. Especially at the idiots who buy this crap. Cuz they’re out there. They’re everywhere.

    I often dream of inventing a bullshit product that people buy like crazy. I would be rich! Rich, I tell you!

    I love the subtle racism:

    “Ahhhhh soooooo. Kinoki foot pad is beddy good ancient a-Japanese seclet.”

    And the “science”:

    “Look! Brown stain on a white thing! Clearly it came out of someone and contains all the things our lines and circles say it does! They are lines and circles and therefore trustworthy. You mean you don’t understand how a tree works? Oh, well then trees are magic and this works just like that on you, seeing as how you are also made of wood.”
