Head down the rabbit hole of cheesy acting, made-up problems, wildly unsubstantiated promises, and bizarre devices you didn’t even know you needed. These travel-related infomercials are the funniest things you’ll see all day!

GoGirl

Yes, it’s actually a device that encourages women to urinate in the street. The video for the GoGirl claims that “women in Europe get it,” and uses the word “pee” more times than you’d imagine is possible in a minute-long commercial.

HoodiePillow

Did we just watch an infomercial or an indie rom com? The video is unclear, but this product is definitely the bastard child of a sweatshirt hood and a pillow.

Snazzy Napper

“It’s like privacy in a bag!” Spoiler: It’s just a blanket and an eye mask.

Dreamhelmet

This is basically a padded box you wear over your head to block out light, sound, and judgment while you snooze. Watch the infomercial actors strap on their Dreamhelmets and dream of having better careers.

The Pocket Chair

Too good to sit on the ground? Let this 250 lb. man scream at you about a chair you can bring anywhere! It folds up and can be carried around, so you’ll never have to stand again.

Relax ALLY

What traveler hasn’t had his or her head forcibly strapped to a bus seat by a stranger? The Relax ALLY is like a straightjacket for your head, preventing that embarrassing head bob that happens when you try to fall asleep.

PajamaJeans

For when you’ve given up on life but don’t want to be judged for it, PajamaJeans (sweatpants printed to look like jeans) are the perfect outfit.
