Have you ever been up at night, flipping through channels, and been bombarded by the infomercials? The Magic Bullet, for example, is a little mini blender. Yet if you invest the time to watch the full infomercial, you will discover that the Magic Bullet is perfect for all of your kitchen tasks. It can blend up ingredients for a personal sized smoothie, an omelet, and muffins (never mind that the blueberry muffins actually come out blue after making their way through the Magic Bullet). You can also use the Magic Bullet for grinding coffee, chopping onions and garlic, the list goes on.
The advertisement features a pleasant man and woman surrounded by their friends. The group could easily be away for a weekend at a lakeside cottage.

If you, the viewer, are not careful, you may begin to subconsciously marvel at the Magic Bullet until you decide you need one too.
