In this series, the A&E cable network introduces its selection of some of the most interesting, beautiful, or engaging things in the world. In this episode, there is a look at the ten most different, unusual, and silly products ever pitched on TV. Famous TV pitchperson Ron Popeil is just one of the experts who help A&E Top Ten decide what is funnier: the Clapper or the Ginsu Knives, the Thighmaster or the Pocket Fisherman. Which of these (and more) will be the wackiest product ever? The history of each product is discussed and the experts rank the products based on a variety of criteria, including trend-setting, copycats, sales, overall popularity, and many more.
