Imaginary Products Could Save Holiday Shoppers A Bundle

November 24, 2009

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., Nov. 24 /PRNewswire/ — Looking for an 18-blade razor to streamline your morning shave? Or perhaps an MP3 player in a molar, a skateboard you ride on with your head, or a compact car that morphs into a huge, gas-guzzling van just before a collision? All these and many more outrageous, unobtainable products are now featured at Hamburger Blender(SM) — Products you won’t believe (http://www.hamburgerblender.com). Just launched, the site gives shoppers the opportunity to chuckle and chortle over the world’s most ridiculous and absurd consumer products, none of which exist or can be purchased.

“People hoping to spend absolutely nothing this holiday season will be delighted by the site’s totally non-functional check-out system,” predicted Hamburger Blender head of marketing Skip Loring. Visitors to the site can collect their favorite fake products in a personal shopping cart and even e-mail them to friends, much like a typical online vendor. But try as they might, they cannot buy them.

Hamburger Blender staff estimate that buying no holiday gifts at all will save the average family $352.19. Yet the company also realizes that failing to open their wallets this holiday season may be unbearably frustrating for some, and could permanently damage relationships with friends and family. To this end — and in order to recognize at least a modicum of revenue — Hamburger Blender features tasteful ads from companies that really do take orders. These ads, from Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, and others, enable site visitors to exercise their inalienable right to buy actual products and services. What’s more, at Hamburger Blender’s Zazzle.com storefront (http://www.zazzle.com/hamburgerblender), visitors can select from a variety of custom clothing, mouse pads, and other items emblazoned with the most bizarre, guaranteed-to-be-forever-out-of-stock products.

“We wanted to do something unique,” remarked Loring, “and with the millions of sites out there selling real products, we just knew we could never compete. We’ve been told that our business model is weird, but please, please help us!”

About Hamburger Blender:

Hamburger Blender is a humor (i.e., funny) site which at first glance appears to be an online merchant selling a variety of useful gadgets and other products. On second glance, however, it becomes increasingly clear that none of the products on the site are real or actually for sale. That’s probably a good thing, since virtually all of the products are implausible, absurd, or insane.
