We as photographers all know better than the average consumer looking to just have a DSLR, but if you’re looking for a laugh this afternoon, then you should take a look at the video after the jump featuring the Home Shopping Network attempting to sell the Canon Rebel T3i back in 2012.

Some of the best highlights? They call it a flagship camera, say that professionals use it, and say that a Canon lens is being used to film them despite said lens being a multi-thousand dollar video lens. But the overall marketing is just so blatantly forced and fake that you can’t help but crack up and think of the poor helpless folks that they’re targeting.

To be fair, the camera is quite good considering that the camera is one of Flickr’s most popular DSLR and that it still holds up even today when they’ve announced the T6i.
