Kurt’s Blog: An As-Seen-On-TV Product That’s Fantastic

Every time you watch an infomercial…you look at it, and say to yourself “That would be awesome…look how quickly I could make salsa…or I could finally get to my hard-to-reach plants”. Then you do one of two things:

1) Snap back to reality and know that it’ll never work

2) Not snap back to reality…buy it…and discover that it’s junk.

However…I found one. It works…it’s AWESOME.

I give you…the Pocket Hose.

Pocket hose! Pocket hose! Look at that…that’s 50 feet of hose…in a small container…that I’m holding (easily…and I have stickbag, scrawny arms) with one hand.

Here’s the infomercial…

It’s cool…Richard Karn and I are buds.

Why do I love the Pocket Hose? First off…$19.99 for a 50 foot hose? Boom…you have my attention.

I will admit…I had my doubts…but Pocket Hose did NOT disappoint.

You know how when you attach a hose to the spigot, and you turn the water on…and water begins shooting out the side of the attachment, and everything gets wet? It doesn’t happen with the Pocket Hose. I felt like the biggest doofus celebrating the “great seal of the Pocket Hose”.

Seriously, this what my wife got moments after attaching the hose (that sounded dirty)…”Jennifer, this is the greatest attachment…you have to check this out”…she declined my offer (because she has a life).

The hose then filled with water…and at the other end of the hose? A fantastic little switch that allows you to gauge the water pressure…added bonus! I could go from mist to jet stream.

I had used our old, clunky hose (now I’m sounding like an Infomerical)…maybe twice in the past month. Since Sunday, I’ve used the Pocket Hose 6 times.

I’m even going to take off that ugly hose reel on the side of the garage…no need…it first in the little container (with a little overflow) that it comes in.

It’s so easy to use…so lightweight…it’s clearly from the future.

I’m Producer Kurt…and I like the Pocket Hose.

AWESOME is as AWESOME does
