Yeah, we know Tweety thought the production values of Obama’s infomercial wre the bestest thing ever.

But what do people who really know infomercials think?

New York Post went to the experts

“I don’t see enough smiling. Doom and gloom totally,” said Anthony Sullivan, one of the biggest names in infomercial history.

“I feel depressed right now,” added Sullivan, an Englishman famous for his infomercials touting the Swivel Sweeper and Smart Chopper.

I was about to throw myself through a window because it was depressing,”

And somehow they manage to encapsulate the problem of the entire campaign

He and AJ Khubani, who has produced infomercials for 25 years, said Obama also fell short of offering solutions to the dire problems he laid out.

I didn’t see a payoff. Classic infomercial is you show the before and you show the after. I didn’t see the music or the crashing waves of the Pacific,” Sullivan said.

I have to admit, I never watched infomercials – but this makes sense:

Khubani said: “Every infomercial lays out common problems, whether it’s a flabby belly or acne, and then it gives a solution. In this case the solution is Obama.”

But Obama didn’t pitch the product – himself – convincingly enough, he argued.

Maybe because the product is not really capable of solving our problems
