Handerpants Infomercial - Our Most Popular Video

March 05 2017

Our most popular video of all time is the infomercial we did for Handerpants starring our own commercial pitchman, Chester McGuinness. As of this post, it has almost 900,000 views! We finally talked Chester into recording a response. 

Here, for the first time, is the rough draft of the script for the Handerpants commercial. It changed a bit during filming:


Open with screen that says, In Memory of Billy Mays, 1958-2009.

Shot 1:

JEAN is writing with a pencil. Puts pencil down and starts rubbing her hand.

VO: Tired of senseless rubbing damage while using your hands?

Shot 2:

JEAN takes off a glove and rubs her hand? Hand red if possible.

VO: Tired of chaffing under gloves?

Shot 3:

Product shot.

VO: Try Handerpants!

Clip: Handerpants! Handerpants! Handerpants!

Shot 4:


Chester: This is Chester McGuiness for Handerpants! They're underpants for your hands! They solve all sort of problems like chaffing, reddening of the hands through needless rubbing, and damage to the hands caused by rough contact with other objects.

Holds up hand for inspection.

Chester: And they're stylish! You'll have to hold the ladies back when they get a look at your hands in these tiny tighty-whities. (Snarl and cat scratching motion.)

Clip: Handerpants! Handerpants! Handerpants!
