Sometimes you really have to wonder what goes on in the mind of some marketing teams, as they sit round the table during those long, lonely product creation sessions. We’re starting to imagine it involves lots of ‘nope, it’s already been done‘ type conversations nowadays, with a more desperate, shrill tone emerging as the session goes on.
How else, dear peeps, to explain the rising incidence of just plain ‘weird’ products hitting the streets at the moment? This Bluetooth Speaker With Roasting Thermometer is a case in point. We’re wondering who the poor schmuck was who had to come up with the product copy. ‘Bach while you baste‘, or liquefy while you Spotify‘ or something.
Anyhoo, the thing apparently lets you listen to ‘high quality‘ music while you cook (or maybe just hang out in the kitchen with your thermometer?) and it also acts as a hands-free speakerphone if a call comes in while you’re elbows deep in soufflé mix. Select your roast preset (rare, medium, etc) stick the probe in the joint and wait for the voice alert. Magic moments! Priced at $89.99.
