This Day in Pop Culture for May 3

Over the years, Popeil created numerous commercials for his many products coining the phrase, “But wait, there’s more!” In 2005, Popeil sold the company but many of his inventions are still selling today.

According to Entrepreneur.com, Popeil only had three product flops: The Inside Outside Window Washer (which was faulty), the adhesive Hold-Up (which didn’t), and a combination coffee pot/steam iron called the Prescolator!
