The Wraptastic is a dispenser designed to replace the boxes and dispensers that aluminum foil and plastic wrap sells in.
Partial transcript of the Wraptastic TV commercial:
All you want to do is wrap up your sandwich or leftovers but dealing with plastic wrap and foil leaves you in a tangled mess. Hi Mark Gill here for Wraptastic! The super smart dispenser that lets you pull, press and wrap, just like that. Amazing! Simply load in your wrap and you’re ready to roll. Plastic wrap, foil wrap, wax paper and more! You simply pull, press and wrap, just like that. Wraptastic rolls are easy to start. They never bunch, stick or rip apart. Now that’s fast and that’s easy. And talk about fast, in the same time it took to wrap one hero sandwich the old fashioned way we wrapped three hero sandwiches the Wraptastic way.
Hey when your foil rips and splits you just want to quit. But Wraptastic cuts perfectly every time so their’s no waste. Wraptastic fits all of your favorite brands and standard width rolls up to 200 feet. Now that’s neat. Look boxes from the store have exposed edges, ouch! But Wraptastic has a safer, hidden stainless-steel cutter that cuts only the wrap, and only when you need it to. And unlike boxes that slip and slide, Wraptastic’s no-slip rubber grip feet keep it firmly in place. Now you can pull press, and wrap without any waste. Ready to change rolls? It’s spring-loaded so it’s easy out and easy in.
Wraptastic is dishwasher safe and because it’s no bigger than boxes from the store it fits right in the drawer. Put Wraptastic to work in your home today for just $10.99. Call right now and we’ll send you a second Wraptastic as a bonus, just pay separate processing and handling. But I’m not stopping there! As a special give, the first two rolls are on me. That’s right, I’m going to fill your Wraptastics with a roll of foil and a roll of plastic absolutely free! You get two Wraptastics, two rolls of wrap, a huge value for just $10.99.
Key words and phrases in this TV commercial and what they really mean:
- What the commercial said: You get two Wraptastics, two rolls of wrap, a huge value for just $10.99
- What some people might think that means: I can get two Wraptastics with rolls of plastic and foil and it will only cost me $10.99
- What it really means: On the screen the price is shown as “$10.99 +S&H”, which means you must pay $10.99 plus additional “shipping and handling” fees. When the second, free Wraptastic is mentioned the announcer (Mark Gill) says “Just pay separate processing and handling”. At the end of the commercial in fine print the fee for processing and handling is shown as $6.99. The total cost for your $10.99 Wraptastic double offer is $24.97 plus any applicable sales tax and an additional $10 fee if you have it shipped outside the continental United States.
The commercial excitedly announces that you can get two Wraptastics for $10.99. In reality, your $10.99 Wraptastic will cost $24.97 plus state sales tax. Although the words “plus shipping and processing” are mentioned and on the screen in fine print, many people may consider this a very deceptive and misleading TV commercial.
