They get these ripped up guys to do the ads, guys who didn't get the way they are by using a Bowflex. Then the ads try to make the potential buyer believe that the machine will turn them into supermodels.
Yeah, ever see that crappy 10 minute commercial where they keep showing this lady that they advertise as like a 50+ year old grandma with a six pack? There's no way that lady's 50, and it seems like a piece of junk anyway. I've never tried it, but there are other machines that I know people swear by and won't touch that thing.
ironman, great rant on Abercrombie, that had me laughing out loud.
