As I’ve written many time before, society is going through an ‘immediate gratification’ phase.
Whether it’s turning to the internet or food delivery services or credit cards … we all want what we want NOW.
Doesn’t matter about the implications or the accuracy, we don’t want to wait for anything. Ever.
I say all this because yesterday, I received this in my mailbox …
Yep, it’s a TV dinner frying pan from a company called Amazing Pan.
To be honest, the name Amazing Pan is a bit of a stretch given all they’ve done is compartmentalise a normal frying pan so you can shove a bunch of different foods in it … but given I’ve never seen one of these before, maybe I’m being a bit harsh on their ingenuity.
OK, on the plus side it’s a product that is still encouraging people to actually do something rather than hand it to them on a plate [though, in a weird way, they’re also doing that as well] but who the hell needs a product like this:?
Seriously, how hard is it to use a few extra pots and pans?
What next … a tooth brush that doubles as a toilet brush?
Actually that already exists, or at least it did when I decided to teach my awful housemate when I lived in Wollongong, Australia.
Yes, I know I’m going to hell, but I work in adland so that was always guaranteed anyway.
