  1. Yes.
  2. I hate this infomercial passionately. 

The guy with the mustache is Klee Irwin.  On his own, he's creepy enough, almost reptilian.

Doing a fake interview, about new age pooping: he scares me.
 
It's like when you're 23, out with your friends, and that skeezy guy that's at the club, by himself, dancing alone (badly)...scans the crowd and sets his sights on you.  He's that guy -  and now he's making snake-oil infomercials so that dumb suckers can poop and think it will change their lives.
Let's try not to be boring, mkay?

With you 100%; one of those 'can't reach the remote quick enough' infomercials...
 
Something just doesn't feel right about a non-qualified individual explaining 'the evils of being F.O.S.' and how he has the cure...and he looks an awful lot like John Waters...

Every couple of months or so, I get a bag of sliders from Whitey Castle's. 

That does it for me.

The colon cleanse craze is just another rip-off, like weight loss.  When I hear ads on the radio for Purifast, I flee.

It's a fad that keeps coming back. There were movements (no pun intended) in the late 1800s to get people to try all sorts of purges. That's where cerial got it's start, with Kelloggs and others opening sanitaria and coming up with foods and other devises to cleanse colons and make people smart and happy. Obviously it works. Wink

The testimonials are quite entertaining, too.  Here's part of one:
 
Now listen closely when I say this because it is a powerful statement...I HAVE NEVER, EVER IN ALL MY YEARS SMELLED SOMETHING SO VILE, GROSS, HORRID, PUTRID, FOUL, NOSE HAIR CURLING, VOMIT INDUCING, NASTY OR RETCHED AS THE DAILY PARADE OF INTESTINAL LINING / ROTTAGE THAT I AM EXPELLING FROM MY BODY!  If stink was a country, this would be its president! I went to the bathroom 3 times today and the last time being 20 minutes ago. The stench still fouls my sense of smell. So many sections of what looked like chunks of liver & internal organ looking things connected by what looked like clear caulk, muck, and other really disgusting lumpage and chunkage that I just do not have the words to even describe.

So it looks like you sh@t out pieces of your liver and other internal organs, yet you're taking this thing? Hmmmm, sounds like you might do a little better in a padded room...

Scroll down the site to Ken Wolfson's "testimonial".  Read the entire thing.  It's f*cking priceless!!

I read the stories. So you can get six-pack abs from just using this stuff, but you have 5 movements a day and it makes your breath smell horrible.  One guy has terrible headaches but then feels better after a 4 foot crap. He may really have sh*t for brains.

It's total BS. A friend has worked as a medical assistant in a colonoscopy clinic for 20+ years, has never ever seen the "plaque" that the commercial warns about.

Moral of the story? Never underestimate the wallets of the gullible.

Excellent point!
 
Screening for colon cancer has gotten a lot of press in the past few years.  Included in this press is the colonoscopy procedure, and references to the unpleasantness of the necessary pre-scope-flush-out.
 
They never allude to the ropes of hell that those colon-blow sites discuss and display, claiming that all who don't use their product have this in their bodies.
 
Perhaps all that crap is created by the "detox" product.  You take it, it's undigestible, congeals in the lower intestine... and when it makes its way out it is VILE.  This theory is gross but it makes sense.
 
I've watched news shows where they show the images captured during a typical colonosopy.  You might see a few polyps, but no goo.
