I was watching TV, and all of sudden this infomercial came on for GoJo Hands Free. It caught my attention because at first I thought it was a spoof, something from Saturday Night Live. I watched to see if it was a spoof.
To my surprise it was a real product and a real commercial.
The GoJo Hands Free Infomercial
The informercial starts with Joe Gray, who is pitching the product. He tries to convince you that Blue Tooth and head phones are not true hands free devices, but GoJo Hands free is the only true "hands free" device.
Many people who are not that technical maybe drawn to the product as GoJo Hands Free does not require batteries and does not have wires and seems easy to use.
What the product does is it allows the user hold the phone against the user's face so they can talk with their hands free. It does this in a very simple and very low tech way.
The GoJo Hands Free device is just a plastic head band that has a suction cup on one end. You use the suction cup on your phone and put the headband over your head. This keeps the phone against your phone like you were holding it, but both of your hands are free.
The infomercial does the normal thing of offering some bonuses, this a free mat that keeps electronic devices from sliding while you are driving. Then Joe Gray doubles the offer with 4 GoJo Hands Free devices and two mats, you just pay processing and handling on the second one.
Some Problems With The GoJo Hands Free
By far the biggest problem I have is how stupid it looks to wear one of the devices. The infomercial does try to make it seems cool, most of the people in the infomercial are young and attractive, but to me I would have to laugh if I saw someone in public with it on.
The other problem is mostly for touch screen phones. The device smashes the device against your face. So you will get a lot of skin oil on your touch screen. So you will either need to be cleaning your screen a lot or use a lot of the plastic protective skins. Unless a dirty screen does not bother you.
The last problem, is do you really trust this cheap plastic headband to hold a few hundred dollar phone? I paid about $200 for my iPhone and I am not sure I would trust the GoJo Hands Free to hold my phone.
I know in the infomercial, Joe Gray hooks a 5 pound laptop to the GoJo Hands Free and it holds the laptop. But I do not trust everything I see in an infomercial.
I know for me, though I love the infomercial just for the humor aspect, I will not buy an GoJo Hands Free product. I will just use my speaker phone when I need to have my hands free.
