The Abdomenizer

One of the things I miss about TV are the latest "as seen on TV" commercials. Maybe it's a generational thing or the aloof desire these products bring. You know it probably won't work, but...

I happened to catch this article tantalizingly titled "The retro piece of exercise equipment my parents couldn’t give up". If that's not a "But wait, there's more!" call to action, I don't know what is. I was both embarrassed and shocked to discover that I am now officially old - that everything from my teenage years is retro :-D

Anyway, a little Googling revealed that The Abdomenizer is actually a Canadian invention and that it was developed by a real doctor, not an actor. Judging from the comments on the video, some people swear by it...so, who knows?
