Victoria Looseleaf's mesmerizingly WTF facial-stretch video set to Placido Domingo has been making the rounds this weekend. But who is Victoria Looseleaf?

In her own words she once described herself as a minor celebrity and THE FUTURE OF TELEVISION. She's a writer and dance critic. She blogs at The Looseleaf Report.

Like many directors before he got his big break, David Lynch made informercials

She seems like she would fit in fine around here. I bet she's be posting more stuff to products than anyone else.

I understand when they put a condom over a banana but this is too obscure.

Surely this has to be tongue-in-cheek.

So to speak.

If this is part of a full-body regimen, I imagine she could crush cans and fracture bones with kegels.

I think you accidentally posted a clip from The Poughkeepsie Tapes.

She writes for the Los Angeles Times, too. On body fascism.

i think the body nazis have already gotten her - and they're making her do bad things

Wouldn't "private access" be a more appropriate descriptor?

The clip looks like something they could use in a Tobacco video.

Just wait until the Facial Flex people run out of hush money and all the users with severed tongues start coming out of the woodwork.

What is this product supposed to do? I don't understand.

Remove $50 from your bank account. According to some doctors on the internet, it doesn't do jack.

If she's not drunk, it's time for her to see a neurologist.

But, then, I'm drunk, and it's sort of like how when you're high, everybody else seems high.

EASTER COCKTAILS!

She seems quite heavily tranquilized, to me.

I like the part where she tries to talk.

Amazing that a bunch of plastic surgeons would say that it doesn't work.

Not saying it works, just saying.

I got this for my hamster so he can work his pecs, but it just sits in the corner of the cage covered in dirty laundry.

He does masturbate to the instructional DVD though.

Your hamster probably would like his privacy.

You'd be amazed at the horrible dirty things this made me think of. Amazed.

Why is your hamster covered in dirty laundry if he doesn't need his privacy?

My guess is she had been using the device in earlier takes or something. It would fatigue the muscles around your mouth and make speaking difficult.

In case anyone hasn't seen the Face yoga video yet...

It comes in its own little container. She actually said that.

This is a product called Facial Flex and is sold on QVC. Personally, I think it is bunk.

I only trust my facial muscles to the Rejuvenique Electric Facial Mask.

Which is why it might be worth getting for some people. It's plausible deniability the next time you get "you're slurring-drunk and you're supposed to be watching a little kid" crap from a spouse, significant other, Department of Social Services etc.
posted by Mayor Curley at 7:22 PM on April 24, 2011


Hey, you don't have to buy it from QVC, you can order it from....Amazon! And gosh, read those five-star reviews! (For example, "Your mouth sphincter will never be tighter!" and "Now I have the skinniest face in the trailer park!")

If Facial Flex isn't working for you, maybe you should try the Rejuvenique Horror Mask Electric Facial Mask.
