Infomercial comes from the root word "info" and "mercial," which is greek for "to give wrongly"
But the infomercial said if I rub Bengay on my balls it'd feel amazing... They haven't grown back yet!

Show lasting 28:30 minutes attempting to sell a particular product on television. Most infomercials air in the overnight time periods, but do run all hours of day.
Wow, check out my new micro-midget! Martha Stewart was the spokeswoman in the infomercial promoting midget tossing.

Annoying commercials where the people selling stuff send subliminal messages, often by reapeting the same thing over and over, or shouting really loud.
Set it, then forget it!
