I've just removed this from the article (and tidied it a little), as it's not relevant to the subject. It might be used for an article on 'Dial Media', I suppose, if there's a call for such a thing:

Valenti and Becher opened advertising agency "Dial Media" on a shoestring budget, writing and producing their own two-minute commercial that literally crammed the content of a twenty-five minute demonstration of The Miracle Painter within it. The offbeat, high-energy commercials which opened with a man in a tuxedo painting a ceiling were an incredible success, leading Dial Media to expand their business to include a number of other items marketed in the same rapid-fire manner. Many of the duo's catch phrases actually became part of the lexicon and are used and even parodied today, phrases such as "now how much would you pay?" and "but wait, there's more! Dial's use of comedy combined with research into purchasing prime television advertising time, the use of toll-free telephone numbers to place orders and acceptance of credit cards was the forerunner of today's direct marketing industry. According to the company's website those items included:

  • The Miracle Slicer
  • The Miracle Duster
  • Claudette Louberge Hosiery
  • Royal Durasteel
  • Vacufresh
  • The "Chainge" Adjustable Necklace
  • Lusterware Flatware
  • Armourcote Cookware and the subject of this article,
  • Ginsu Knives

  • I like it. Admittedly, I kind of slapped the temp page together with info from the corporate site. This really would be better served at another article. Good call! Might make this my next project. - Lucky 6.9 17:48, 19 Apr 2005 (UTC)
