The Shake Weight is one of those products that is so ridiculous, it just might be real. This vibrating dumbbell is touted as the way to tone arms into shape in just six minutes. Sound good? Watch the infomercial above and then see how you feel about the Shake Weight.

After you watch the Shake Weight ad above, you'll see that the product is no OxiClean or ShamWow. The Shake Weight is the sort of suggestive weight loss product that induces giggles and goes viral for all the wrong reasons.

If the YouTube video above for the Shake Weight looks like it's a fake, you can watch the real-deal ad at the link below.
