Ridiculously Funny Infomercial on Mylar Plastic Weird Tests

10 years ago538 views

An expensively produced mixture of infomercial, science fair, and game show, this film is the perfect look at vintage marketing. Demonstrating the wonders of DuPont’s latest product, Mylar, the film takes camp to the next level. A super strong transparent polyester film, Mylar is resistant to temperature changes, stress, acid, and more. Its durability is apparent, because this film documents many dramatic (and hilarious) “tests” being performed on this new material. Narrated and hosted by a scientist and his cute female assistants, the film shows Mylar being used as a trampoline, being boiled in acid, catching a bowling ball, and trapping odors by enclosing a live skunk! Bizarre and fun to say the least, this film excels with all the charm, creativity, and general wackiness that simply can’t be found in promotional videos today.
