Hello! I'm Jimmy Sellright, and I'm here to tell you about the Bottomless Box.

Do you have boxes piling up in your basement and attic? Are your closets overflowing? Is your car sitting in the driveway because there's no room in your garage? Holiday decorations! Old photographs! Your wife's wedding dress! Your house is bursting at the seams, and the storage unit you rented across town is costing a fortune! What are you going to do?

Fortunately, the good people at Infinite Innovations have developed the Bottomless Box. No matter how much stuff you put inside it, it never fills up.

Sound too good to be true? It isn't. Take a look at the box in front of me. Looks about large enough to hold a television, right? What if I told you that it contains ten televisions, twenty wardrobes full of clothes, one thousand photo albums, and enough DVDs that if you stacked them end-to-end, they'd reach to the moon and back? And yet it never weighs more than five pounds!

Don't believe me? Watch this! There are no special effects, no camera trickery being employed. I am actually lowering a Christmas tree into this box. I can put in a dozen more and still close the lid. Look! I'm lifting the box as though it weighs nothing at all, even though I happen to know that it contains a marble birdbath, a treadmill, and a 15-volume set of encyclopedias.

And the best part is, whenever I want to retrieve something, I can just reach right in and grab it. Hey, where's that copy of War and Peace I put in this box six years ago? Here it is! I could have ten thousand books in this box and it wouldn't matter. I just reach in, and the one I happen to be looking for is right on top of the stack.

How much would you expect to pay for a box that can hold the entire contents of your grandmother's attic with room to spare? One hundred dollars? Five hundred dollars? How about $19.95 plus shipping and handling?

But that's not all. Call within the next ten minutes and we'll include the Vanishing Box at no charge. Don't pay thousands for someone to haul away your old refrigerator. Just put it in the Vanishing Box and it disappears forever!

Our operators are standing by. Call now!

Greetings fellow cave people! This is Ugg McGrunt with the Neanderthal Shopping Channel, coming to you live from downtown Bedrock.

By now you know about or fabulous club to hit things with. You may even be one the lucky few who bought the revolutionary new wheel from us. Well have I got a special treat for you today. Our clan of experts have gotten together and come up with an invention that will change the world as you know it!

Are you tired of sitting in dark and dank caves?
Are you worried about people stealing your club, wheel or Woman?
Are you tired of eating raw meat or hard potatoes?

I have got what you been looking for - FIRE. Don’t be scared, this isn’t the raging inferno your father was scared of. We have tamed the fire and you can now use its awesome power to help you in your everyday life.

Our experts have discovered the secret of two magic rocks that when banged together will create a spark that will light a small bundle of dried grass on fire.

Hey! Who’s that sneaking around in the cave at night? With fire, you’ll know! It lights up the cave so you can see. It will even keep you warm when it’s cold outside and it will also dry out you wet loin cloth (no more chafing for you!).

But wait… that’s not all.

With fire you get smoke, and guess what? That will drive away those pesky mosquitoes and flies… and smoke will add flavor to your food.

Hey! Have you ever been sitting in a cave with your clan when a bear or mountain lion suddenly comes sniffing around? What do you do? Yell and throw rocks, hoping it leaves and doesn’t eat anyone? With fire that will be thing of the past. The next time one comes sneaking around just grab a burning branch and wave it in the animals face. PRESTO! No more predators!

If you act now you will not only get two magic rocks and a bundle of dried grass, but we’ll also include not one, but two of our top selling clubs. And if you are one of the first one-hundred people to respond we will also include, absolutely for free, the revolutionary wheel.

Coming soon on the Neanderthal Shopping Channel… a land bridge to the new world!
