Here’s a shocker: Mike Rowe, the wisecracking host of Discovery’s Dirty Jobs, was a host on the home shopping channel QVC in the early 90’s. What makes this fun is that Rowe is clearly aware of how absurd QVC is, and spends much of his onscreen time cracking jokes and generally making a mockery of the job. It’s awesome. Behold:
“If I were a cat, I’d be loving this. … The crinkling sound makes cats just crazy. They love it. That’s why this is a cat toy. That’s a cat on the front, and when a cat sees this, he’ll be drawn to it, magically. … He’ll just wrestle with the bag and experience a singular cat thrill.”
“The lamp is a little warm, not unlike lava. [Feigns burn.] Medic! A singular opportunity to not only enjoy the bubbling effects of lava but fuse all your fingers together and create a little webbed appendage for you.”
