Michael Myers Beauty Mask Infomercial

This is a really creepy mash up of the Rejuvenique infomercial and Joe Cocker's "You are so Beautiful to Me".

That infomercial needs no help to make it creepy.

I laughed out loud. At length. And yeah, very creepy. Marvelous.

Fellas, take note: Every woman you've ever met in your life uses this product because they think you might like them more because of it. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

There is so much wrong with these two sentences it's hard to know where to start.

Mind you with just a little paint you could make an even-creepier Guy Fawkes mask out of that thing. Rejuvenate while you protest!

It would be way creepier if they edited out all of the parts where you can see her face.

I'm reminded of this and this. And then I freaked out in my mouth a little bit.

Michael Myers must have amazing skin.

Obligatory 1 star reviews

I kept fast forwarding through the video looking for the Austin Powers guy to be spliced in for some kind of dick joke then I just realized you were talking about the Halloween villain. I blame too many Rejuvenique sessions on my mental slowness.

That was outstanding. For reasons unknown to me and perhaps best left unexamined, I completely lost it whenever they showed the little blinky lights on the mask. "Darling, I love you most when you're motionless, expressionless and blinking."

You know I kind of hope it works because of the chips of rock from stone henge in each mask..

Funny, I play Slayer's Dead Skin Mask when I use my Rejuvenique.

I enjoy that an amazon reviewer noted that the Rejuvenique is worthless "for kicks".

My co-worker who has a habit of peeping at what I'm doing, just said, seriously..that she ought to buy one because it looks so relaxing. I think she may have already sent all of her money to Nigeria.

That hit all the right (or is it wrong?) buttons for me. Intensely creepy with a distinct tinge of sadness.

You want to laugh, but then the presentation is so serious... frightening.

So, just how old are you? Not everyone ages gracefully (or willingly, for that matter). It's so easy for you younger people to sit in judgment. You just wait, your day will come. Nobody wants to look or feel old, so give us old-timers a break. At least give an alternative, unless of course you are a Logan's Run advocate. As for me, I'm looking forward to more wrinkles, jowls, and a bigger waddle. So there. :p

If I wanted to break up with a lover, I'd totally buy one of these and keep it hidden until they had a nightmare they needed to be woken up from...

I would completely lose it if I walked into the den and my girlfriend was wearing a Rejuvenique mask.

Last I checked, the people who bought it didn't willingly seek out electrode burns, either.

Damn you, fearfulsymmetry, now that Silver Shamrock song is stuck in my mind... and it will be there all day.

Heh heh heh, my evil work is done.

Now I totally want to buy one of these and paint it up all killer clown style.

My wife would have a heart attack though, so I can't.

On a related note, I've always maintained that Halloween 3 is a decent horror flick and would have been much better received if they hadn't called it a Halloween sequel. The same cannot be said for that horrible Friday the 13th sequel sans Jason Voorhees (part 5 I think).

The Rejuvenique ladies looked so sad and lonely. Sitting by the burning fireplace, reading "House Beautiful" magazine, but nobody to keep them company.

Holy wowcats. This is the greatest video on the internet that does not involve bunny steeplechase.

I've wanted a couple of these for years. (I wanted one when I saw the infomercial on TV, but back then it was way expensive...at least it's cheaper now.) There's something so amazingly creepy about this mask. I've mentioned them here a time or two, even posted kind of a silly favorite the boyfriends in the back complete it, I think. I've got it on a couple xmas lists.

And the mash-up leaves out very important elements found in the original infomercial: Linda Evans (and her unfortunate plastic surgery) and the cross-eyed Hannibel Lecter stare in the demo.

Amazing. I'm pretty sure that when you order one, you get a talking house in the middle of nowhere as part of the bargain, as well as a winding road that dead ends on your doorstep.

Shame about it being the only place with light for miles around, and there being no gas station around, and it being so cold out at night.

Of course, in all honesty, I wouldn't judge negatively anyone who used something like this.

If it works, cool. (And if it doesn't work, then someone has something to inspire great anguished art. Or excitable treatment of those kids whose car just broke down outside.)
