Sometimes the pitch is just too irresistible. How can we say no to the super absorbency of the ShamWow? Or the unrivaled stain-busting power of OxiClean? Most of the times these products end up just collecting dust in our closets after we realize they don’t seem to be quite as effective or essential as their advertising made them out to be, however, sometimes a products exceeding level of ridiculousness is made painfully apparent right from the start — like with these 12 “as seen on TV” items that surely constitute some of the worst branding and merchandise failures to ever be considered consumer “goods.”

With Sauna Pants you can kiss your calorie counting days goodbye because once you strap on a pair of these personalized crotch cookers, that unwanted weight around your hips and thighs will supposedly just melt away — along with any chances of having children, if you happen to be a guy.
