I want a burrito fart one!

lorien1973 on February 26, 2008 at 6:38 PM

Anyone call the number to see who answers?

– The Cat

MirCat on February 26, 2008 at 6:41 PM

Funny stuff. Wonder what happens when you call the 1-800 number they give out in the vid…..

RW Wacko on February 26, 2008 at 6:41 PM

Hah, beat me to it, MirCat.

RW Wacko on February 26, 2008 at 6:42 PM

It’s a phone sex line. LOL.

lorien1973 on February 26, 2008 at 6:44 PM

HA! My best laugh all day, mostly for “Fear” and “Burrito Fart”.

Frozen Tex on February 26, 2008 at 6:45 PM

They actually DO have tire smoke and racing exhaust. But the company is missing out–these should be on the counter of every auto parts store in the country, right next to the logo keychains and 99 cent tire gauges. They’d make a fortune!

JamesLee on February 26, 2008 at 6:48 PM

How’d they miss “Wild Boar Guts”?

RedWinged Blackbird on February 26, 2008 at 6:57 PM

That was good :)

Ugly on February 26, 2008 at 7:06 PM

What a Hoot!

Scoreboard44 on February 26, 2008 at 7:15 PM

it went so quick..

But if you say the FEAR scent candle with the guy laying there….I almost burst!

Scoreboard44 on February 26, 2008 at 7:16 PM

That’s “Saw” not say.

Scoreboard44 on February 26, 2008 at 7:16 PM

Cute! I actually wish this was real. Attention entrepreneurs!

Viscount_Bolingbroke on February 26, 2008 at 7:19 PM

I want the candle with the Ball Glove smell.

Scoreboard44 on February 26, 2008 at 7:20 PM

I SO passed that link on to everyone I know…

Bob's Kid on February 26, 2008 at 7:30 PM

If you go to the website listed in the commercial, you get some additional scents, such as “Top Gun” and “A-Team.” LOL

ScoopPC11 on February 26, 2008 at 7:30 PM

They actually DO have tire smoke and racing exhaust. But the company is missing out

Bob's Kid on February 26, 2008 at 7:31 PM

That was great!!!!! I’m passing it on to my e-mail list.

TeeDee on February 26, 2008 at 7:34 PM

Without a doubt, best candle commercial ever.

Real or imaginary.

I wish they actually sold them… even if they had NO scent, it would be a hilarious father’s day gift!

Here, dad – Chuck Norris Sweat….

darkpixel on February 26, 2008 at 7:34 PM

What a Hoot!

Scoreboard44 on February 26, 2008 at 7:15 PM

Maybe they can make a Hooters Mandle

Wade on February 26, 2008 at 7:36 PM

darkpixel on February 26, 2008 at 7:40 PM

darkpixel on February 26, 2008 at 7:46 PM

I want a Gunpowder Residue mandle.

waterhouse on February 26, 2008 at 7:48 PM

I want the Hardware Store mandle!!!!!!!

Jim708 on February 26, 2008 at 7:48 PM

Baseball glove? Hmmm. Second look at GodTube.

Spirit of 1776 on February 26, 2008 at 7:50 PM

Dang! That would actually be the perfect gag gift FOR MEN! Allah, good job!

upinak on February 26, 2008 at 7:50 PM

GodTube?? GodTube???

For crying out loud, when are my Christian brethren going to stop co-opting everything they see and actually come up with an original idea?

Sorry, didn’t mean to hijack the thread (the way Christians hijack everything else!).

CurtZHP on February 26, 2008 at 7:51 PM

Thanks Allah. I had to call in the wife for that one. I think she wrote down the number to place an order. (Nope she isn’t blond…well not anymore).

Limerick on February 26, 2008 at 7:51 PM

Allah … guess what! candles for men.com HAHA

upinak on February 26, 2008 at 7:52 PM

FEAR. Also, first real post :D Great to be here Hot Air!

spkthed on February 26, 2008 at 7:54 PM

jgapinoy on February 26, 2008 at 8:09 PM

I’m holding out for WD-40 and Lawn Mower Exhaust.

Slublog on February 26, 2008 at 8:09 PM

oops

jgapinoy on February 26, 2008 at 8:10 PM

As soon as they come up with “Computer Workstation Beer Spill,” I’m in.

I can relate. Dumped a glass of iced tea on my keyboard once and had to replace the entire motherboard because it fried the keyboard controller chip.
But it didn’t smell as bad as stale beer…

RMCS_USN on February 26, 2008 at 8:10 PM

BluefishTV.com = 100% TEXAS

That’s right. Suck it, L.A.

ScottMcC on February 26, 2008 at 8:11 PM

Mandles,for the love of all things manly and Menly.

-Early morning Na-palm to bring back the memories
-Na-palm for the posers who have never been in the
Military,but love the aroma while watching the movie
Apocalypse.

-Burnt rubber,and the sweet smell of nitro racing gasoline.

-for those fond memories of the 60,70,back seat deals,
old chevy aroma #9 is a good choice!

-gawd awful stench stink,for the garage,that way your sure
to have a quality time with your favourite project in your
garage,and it will persuade the little women not to go near

-One of my favourites,make sure all the windows are open
the sweet aroma of a 10 megaton warhead,but you’ll swear
your 10 miles down wind,no flash and no rediation aperfect
blend.

canopfor on February 26, 2008 at 8:13 PM

ROFL! Oh Me, that’s funny.

WayWard Fundamentalist Christian on February 26, 2008 at 8:17 PM

oops again,that should be radiation,not rediation.

canopfor on February 26, 2008 at 8:17 PM

Big A:

Guess you didn’t like the cinammon apple spice candles in my kitchen.

Crossing Yankee Candles off the company Christmas list…

Michelle on February 26, 2008 at 8:20 PM

I’d suggest turkey fryer, grilled sausage, and barbecue flavored potato chips. Maybe combine these with some beer and whiskey flavors to make the ultimate Mandle: football tailgate.

Bigfoot on February 26, 2008 at 8:22 PM

Mandles! Love it. Isn’t capitalism wonderful!

petefrt on February 26, 2008 at 8:30 PM

Go to the website and check out their other fragrances. They have “The A-Team” . . . now that’s awsome!

srhoades on February 26, 2008 at 8:33 PM

Where is “BETA MALE”?

Attila (Pillage Idiot) on February 26, 2008 at 8:35 PM

Where is “BETA MALE”?
Attila (Pillage Idiot) on February 26, 2008 at 8:35 PM

I think that was “Fear.”

Slublog on February 26, 2008 at 8:39 PM

Bacon ‘n’ eggs!!!
Donuts!

Fogpig on February 26, 2008 at 8:39 PM

I think that was “Fear.”

Slublog on February 26, 2008 at 8:39 PM

I doubt it. The closest I saw was “Burrito Fart.” Real men don’t eat burritos.

Attila (Pillage Idiot) on February 26, 2008 at 8:40 PM

Bacon ‘n’ eggs!!!
Donuts!

Fogpig on February 26, 2008 at 8:39 PM

How could I have missed the OBVIOUS!!! And I just broke in my new griddle on Sunday by frying up a pound of bacon… The whole house smelled soooo good. In fact, it still does!

darkpixel on February 26, 2008 at 8:51 PM

Now how do we figure out how to get these scents inside of wax?

Fogpig on February 26, 2008 at 8:57 PM

I’ve got it!

Napalm in the morning

conservnut on February 26, 2008 at 9:01 PM

How about “Hot Pocket?”

Hening on February 26, 2008 at 9:01 PM

Is there a day old sweat sock candle?

Skidmarks in the rear scents?

Ode de load in the throne, or strike a match?

Anchovy peppers and onion pizza belch?

Kini on February 26, 2008 at 9:06 PM

3/4 ton diesel
Cuban cigar
Burning nitrocellulose (gun powder)
Napalm (for old burrito farters)
Scalded skinned pheasant (verboten, no thanks)

Anybody?

Speakup on February 26, 2008 at 9:09 PM

How about “The Entire Works of Jane Austen Burning on an Open Flame” mandle?

The Zoo Keeper on February 26, 2008 at 9:09 PM

I want the burnt microwave popcorn mandle.

swami on February 26, 2008 at 9:10 PM

Where is “BETA MALE”?

Attila (Pillage Idiot) on February 26, 2008 at 8:35 PM

Fear covers that.

Speakup on February 26, 2008 at 9:13 PM

I want the burnt microwave popcorn mandle.

Careful with that one. It’ll bring the fire department if you do it in the break room. Really pisses off the boss.

RedWinged Blackbird on February 26, 2008 at 9:16 PM

How about “The Entire Works of Jane Austen Burning on an Open Flame” mandle?

The Zoo Keeper on February 26, 2008 at 9:09 PM

I’m wheezin’ here–you are a guy after my husband’s heart (so to speak). The comments are almost as funny as the video. Awesome.

hoosiermama on February 26, 2008 at 9:20 PM

Where is “BETA MALE”?

Attila (Pillage Idiot) on February 26, 2008 at 8:35 PM

Fear covers that.

Speakup on February 26, 2008 at 9:13 PM

Guys, guys! No one’s afraid of a beta male. It’s fear of a manly man.

Attila (Pillage Idiot) on February 26, 2008 at 9:22 PM

As soon as Chuck Norris gets word of this will he will make them stop using his name just like he did to the “Chuck Norris Facts” guy?

EJDolbow on February 26, 2008 at 9:36 PM

Guys, guys! No one’s afraid of a beta male. It’s fear of a manly man.

Attila (Pillage Idiot) on February 26, 2008 at 9:22 PM

Remember on the vid, fear is symbolized by a poisonous snake.
Since beta males are terrified of females, thats got to come pretty close. LOL

Speakup on February 26, 2008 at 9:38 PM

How unfunny

muyoso on February 26, 2008 at 10:36 PM

I see gunpowder has already been mentioned.

Singed sawdust (from woodworking, power or manual sawing)

Ozone? (power tools)

Paint, paint thinner, varnish?

JimC on February 26, 2008 at 10:41 PM

I make candles, and once I brainstormed with mrs. geek on a line of Trailer Park Candles, with scents like Biscuits n’ Gravy, Mildewed Laundry, Pull My Finger, Sweaty Bed Linen, etc. Some of those Mandles scents could be reproduced with current line fragrance oils, it takes time to mix the scents, then wick test. Lots of fun!

geekrunner on February 26, 2008 at 10:53 PM

How about

-oil refinery
-athletes foot
-cow chip
-rope burn

Ordinary1 on February 26, 2008 at 11:44 PM

I’m sending this to my niece who owns a Candle Supply Company (For people who make them)

She could be rich!

GoodBoy on February 27, 2008 at 12:11 AM

What? no BBQ ribs?

Sanjoboy on February 27, 2008 at 12:37 AM

make mine Old Tyme Woodsman’s Insect Repellant.

TexasDan on February 27, 2008 at 10:07 AM

A-1 Steak Sauce Mandle FTW!

Neo on February 27, 2008 at 10:45 AM

I could use:

“Dull saw blade burning sawdust”

It’s about time to change the blade on that chop saw. I can smell it just burning through the wood.

thomashton on February 27, 2008 at 11:14 AM

So who is erasing posts? I had a link on a post and my post is gone? I didn’t say anything wrong… so WTH is it?

upinak on February 27, 2008 at 1:15 PM

Is it my imagination, or is that girl in the beginning Kaylee from Firefly?

Bob in Feenicks on February 27, 2008 at 1:47 PM

What, no Heinz 57 or scrapple mandles?

null on February 27, 2008 at 4:08 PM
