Chatty Patty

Description: An animatronic parrot
Main Pitch: "Instantly records your voice when you start talking ... then repeats what you say"
Main Offer: $14.99 for one
Bonus: 2nd one (just pay a separate fee)
Marketer: Telebrands
Producer: Kerrmercials
Prediction: On the fence

This is another one of those bizarre, random items for which Telebrands is famous. (Although, believe it or not, this isn't the first time they've tried an animatronic bird.) They must have sales information ... or be nostalgic for the Boogie Bass, the only animatronic item that ever worked on DRTV (to my knowledge).

Although the product is a random novelty with long odds for DRTV, I like it. I also like the commercial. You never know.


  1. What a great commercial and what a fascinating product. If there was a time to take a chance on an outlier, this would be one I would try. The Parakeet was interesting, but the voice recorder in the Parrot puts this over the top.

  2. I can't imagine this spot working all these bird spots remind me of a scene from dumb and dumber
