Title: "Superman Inflato Suit"!
Post by: Captain Marbles on June 09, 2006, 01:28:32 PM
I just saw a commercial for this thing and I still can't stop laughing.  I mean, I know we're supposed to treat the Last Son of Krypton with respect and everything, but really, this is the silliest Superman product out there!  :lol:

OK, just in case you don't know, the Superman Inflato Suit is basically a plastic balloon that is worn just like a costume under your street clothes (providing that you're ten years old).  When danger threatens, however, off come the outer garments, and with a push of the button, air is pumped into the suit, giving you pretend muscles!  :shock:

Which you can use to perform such mind boggling super feats as lifting an empty cardboard box over your head and tearing a plastic garbage bag with your bare handsó :roll:

I thought you had to be kidding about this, but a quick Google search proved that I still have a lot to learn about humanity...

Hey, only £19.99! And the attendant loss of dignity...

On the other hand, this suit could protect you from bullies, since they would undoubtedly find beating the snot out of you difficult while they're paralyzed by hysterical fits of laughter.

It would give you a head start for a quick getaway anyway.

Hey, a ten-year-old COULD keep it until he gets old enough to get into bars.  Then, by strategically placing it within his pants, he might be able to really impress all of the young ladies!   :lol:
