Ridiculous 'Textees' Thimbles Improve Texting At The Cost Of Seeming Normal (VIDEO)

Just when you thought you've seen it all, here comes a contender for the top of our "most ridiculous products" list. This amazing, rap-filled commercial for the product Video Gum says "seems like a product every jerk should have," addressed the problem of mistyping while using your thumbs to write text messages. Not that this isn't a common nuisance, but we're 100% sure the solution isn't wearing what looks like a condom for your thumbs.

We're also confused about all the slapping going on in this commercial. If you're having that many physical confrontations over text messages, the problem probably doesn't lie in how you're typing, right? (Via The Daily What)
