Send Me Your Gold and I'll Mail You A Check (heh,heh)

Have you seen these commercials? Mail in your gold and we'll mail you a check. Okay, um, I may be a little slow here, but who in the world would do this? You are going to sell your valuables by mail to someone you don't know and you haven't even agreed upon a price? Yeah, this strikes me as just plain crazy.

And the commercials are hilarious! Have you seen the one that is directed towards *ahem* ladies of leisure? The company is called Out of Your Life.com. Now, when I first saw this commercial I thought it was just a different spin on the old 'mail me your gold' routine. But when I watched the commercial a couple of times on the website, I realized something different.

I can't post the commercial, but here are the reasons I believe that these commercials are specifically targeting the type of women who you would see on the Millionaire Matchmaker:
  1. She names 6, count them, 6 men who have given her expensive jewelry that she is now selling.
  2. She names two guys at the same time, implying that she was, uh, dating (and I use the term loosely) them simultaneously and she accepted expensive gifts from both of them.
  3. She is currently wearing a HUGE engagement ring and planning a trip to Tahiti, Ireland or Italy....which implies that she is engaged or newly married and going on a honeymoon
Check out the commercial here and tell me what you think!


  1. Thanks for stopping by and welcoming me:O)

  2. That was just about the cheesiest commercial I've ever seen! And I have no idea who would have that much expensive jewelry. ; )

  3. How weird! I'll check it out.

  4. I don't think I have ever seen that second conmmercial you mentioned, but I had the same thought about the first one? Do people really fall for this and send their gold in? I hope not...

    Thanks for stopping by my blog :)

  5. I think this is entirely ridiculous! The commercials and the concept.

  6. OMG what an awful commercial. Can we say WHORE?

    *L* Hey, if I had all that nice jewelery, I would not be selling it... I'd be wearing it and enjoying it.
