Ignite Maxx: It’s Like Cheating!
Posted by Rosepixie on March 24, 2010
This is a commercial for a weight loss product called Ignite Maxx that I’m reasonably certain is a scam (meaning I don’t suggest you even consider taking it, the company screams “shady”). At best it’s homeopathy, which is essentially a scam dressed up as natural medicine.
The woman in this ad makes me want to bang my head against the wall repeatedly. First she very clearly states that for her, being fat meant being miserable because it meant she couldn’t wear the clothes she wanted. I’m sorry, but if you’re entire life is miserable just because you can’t wear something you need to reevaluate.
Then I actually laughed out loud at her when she listed sizes. She says that she was a size 13 and now wears a size 7. Now, this woman looks like an adult to me. In her twenties at least. Definitely not a teenager. For anyone who doesn’t regularly deal with women’s clothing sizes – they come in even numbers. Only teenager clothes (“juniors”) come in odd numbered sizes. So either this woman is trying to dress younger than she is (by quite a bit) or is delusional when it comes to sizes. Regardless, this struck me as very funny.
Finally she tells us that she “put” several of her friends on this miracle drug and they’ve all lost at least 20 pounds. To which I felt like responding, “so, you told all your friends they were fat? wow, remind me never to be your friend!”
This is an awful commercial. The product seems to be terrible and the ad is just as bad. At least you get an idea of what you’re getting into from it. Would you want to do business with a company that so obviously thinks it’s customers are worthless and stupid just because they want to lose weight? I wouldn’t.
