Ever since online streaming became the de facto way to watch television–let’s be real, we’re talking mostly about Netflix–we have all saved ourselves a shitload time by not watching commercials. Netflix alone saved the average user from 9.1 days of commercials last year, and we’ve all been watching more since the quarantine. We’re good with all of that because commercials suck, and they’re a waste of time. This advertisement for the Murphy Ladder is not so much a commercial as it a hilarious cinematic masterpiece designed to sell a product you didn’t know you needed. We can all get behind the Ladder Luchador smacking people in the face with a folding and sideways-collapsing ladder, which is one of the reasons this spot will go down in history with the likes of Apple’s “1984”, Budweiser’s “Whassup”, Old Spice and Dollar Shave Club as some of the most effective and memorable commercials of all time. They absolutely work, too. By the time you read this, our Murphy Ladder should already be here.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
