This idea is similar to a luggage company giving one of their suitcases to a bear in a zoo and seeing how the luggage holds up.
This is best relized as a comedic television research-show. Instead of a bear though, there is an expansive set of conveyor belts throughout a large warehouse. We take your
product and put it at the start, perhaps letting you select which path your "widget" will follow through the labyrinth of trials and tests. You, and the rest of the viewing audience, then get to watch your item pass through the rigors of...
oversized rubber mallets pounding
five genuine kangaroos bounding
shot from a cannon to a pillow
put on the back of an armadillo
dipped in juice of purple beet
falls from over thirty feet
torched and drowned and stoned and lynched
false swing swung, see if it flinched
tickle it with cashmere sweaters
sticker it with sticky letters
freeze a fly on it, squeeze a stye on it,
sneeze or tease or peas and pies on it
spin around and add some glue
how did it fare when it is through?
You get sent home with a video tape of the process for your own quality control research, and a t-shirt with a catchy quip on it.
