“Trim-Jeans”: A Weight Loss Product So Bad It Inspired A Monty Python Sketch

1. Are you looking at losing weight while wearing what appears to be astronaut diapers? Then “Trim-Jeans” is the product for you and it is as easy as 3 steps!

2. Step 1: Inflate your “Trim-Jeans” using your handy little pump (provided).

3. Step 2: Now it’s time to do 10 minutes of sit-ups, sorry, I mean “Magic Torso” movements.

4. Step 3: That’s it, now it’s time to take measurements. You should have lost a total measurement of 7 ¼ inches in just that brief session!

5. “Trim-Jeans” was so ridiculous it inspired the Monty Python’s Flying Circus sketch: “Trim-Jeans Theater”
