Have you ever sat down with nothing else to watch, and just happened to stumble upon an infomercial of sorts, like on The Warehouse, or in an advert in the middle of a program you’re watching?
I find that I now intentionally watch these sorts of programs, infomercials, because in addition to the voices of some of the people who narrate or participate in them, there’s something to be said about how paying attention to someone showing you something or explaining something can actually trigger these tingles or AIOEU (Attention Induced Observant Euphoria). That’s the long name I’ve come up with for this sensation.
Here’s some clips on YouTube to demonstrate what I mean. I’m not embedding them in the site, because you can get into all sort of trouble with copyright and such these days. I just searched for “infomercials” and they all came up.
There was a famous guy who did infomercials and commercials as well as acting and many other pursuits in South Africa whose name was Bill Flynn. His voice would make my head tingle like mad. He was the equivalent of America’s Billy Mays – one of the more well-known “infomercial men”. Unfortunately they have both passed away within the last few years.
