Smash Mute, A Giant Novelty Mute Button For Your TV

August 27, 2012


This is Smash Mute, a giant $25 mute button to punch when those loud-ass local commercials come on during a football game. Although allegedly in December the FCC will require commercials be the same volume as the programming they so rudely interrupt, so it might become obsolete pretty quick. Of course, if you're the kind of human being who would actually buy a giant novelty mute button, what the hell do you care? You're already a crazy person.

Hit the jump for a couple more shots in case you're having trouble grasping the concept. It's a tricky one.



Thanks to Evil Ares, who is so evil that television commercials fear him and only play at a whisper.

    ....$25?!! I can buy 15 novelty eagle heads with that amount of money.

    Would be better as the trigger for some random WMD.

    Yep, regulation is on the way to bring down the 'volume' level of the commercials, I thought it was already in place in states, but that will not stop the audio mixer filling out the sound so that the loudness is still higher than the program either side....

    All I see is a potential porn hider... just has to change to an action movie channel as well...


    I need one that works on internet trolls

  • ZomBBombeR

    I think everyone could benefit from THAT button.

    It would be great if the fucking white text wasn't on it.

    Man, so many great gadgets and cool features are ruined by shitty text and logos. Take away the logo and text and suddenly you have a 007 style villain button.

    um... red paint?

  • Does it work with women?

  • BillGatesIsYourDaddy

    just give them something shiny. this usually shuts them up for a little while.

  • If I want to mute a women I smack them in the mouth.
    Works on men too.

    You will never become one of the guys by being an asshole about / to other women. Wake up, the sisterhood is more powerful (and less bullshitty).

    I disagree. One more joke about women inequality and I officially claim @atheistgirl:disqus to be 'one of the guys'.

  • BillGatesIsYourDaddy

    and you will never be one of the Geekologist by visiting here and coming across all sanctimonious with everyone. stop trying to be some savior of the downtrodden and pull the stick out of your ass.

  • Relax - 'twas just a joke.

    because pressing the mute button on the remote was such a terrible, confusing ordeal.
