    Dick's Gadget Warehouse & How to Submit Your Viewer Video On Any Kind Of Gadget!

    This week's email is from Jeffrey Slomovitz who has submitted warehouse videos (with his son Adam) before. He titled this video: “The Old Way Was Better”.

    Here's Jeffrey's email:

    Hello Sir,

    Please find the enclosed video for the Gadget Warehouse.  This was filmed with my son Adam and can be categorized as an item that probably didn’t need to be invented.

    Thank you,

    Jeffrey Slomovitz


    It turns out there are really a lot of electric erasers available on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2oNSNcq

    We’d love to include your video in an upcoming Giz Wiz Show! Here's what we're looking for! Your home shot video – 2 to 3 minutes long, in any of the following categories:

    -I bought a piece of crap: Did you buy something you ended up hting? We won't get you a refund, but we might be able to give a platform to vent your disappointment. Remember, "family friendly" language applies.
    I invented this! Did you invent something? (Or did a friend or relative invent something.) We can't market it for you, but we can help get the word out. Show us what it is, and how it works. Even if it's a prototype, you can get our (and the audience) reactions. No professional ads please.
    My Gadget Warehouse: Okay, so you don't have a warehouse. It doesn't matter. Just tell us about your favorite old gadget(s). When and where you bought it, and why you're still hanging on to it.

    My Favorite Gadget (favorite old, or favorite new): Show us what it is, tell us what it does and why you love, or loved it! It can be a new gadget you just bought too.
    Post them on YouTube and send us the link! We'll do the rest. (Or possibly nothing, but that's unlikely.) Remember, videos should be just 2 to 3 minutes long! Low production value is fine, but we should be able to hear you and see you! If we select and show your video on The Giz Wiz you’ll earn a tiny amount of fame (hopefully). And if you live in the US, you'll also get an autographed 35-year-old Alfred E. Neuman picture and a MAD surprise (most likely the current issue of MAD.) But no matter where you live, I can email an autographed to you Alfred E. Neuman photo if we show your video. Just print it out, frame it, or just hang it up and no one will know it's a copy. We've tested it out and fans say they look terrific!

    All show submissions go to mail@gizwiz.tv


    Letter of the week:

    This week's email is from Giz Wiz fan Gabe Benitez:

    Hey Dickie Dee and Chad here is a video I took at home of a video that was taken in Southern California in a Target. I took the video after the fact as I didn't think at first but then thought this would make for a cool gadget for the show. I found this really hip DJ he is so hip he has two!


    From the Giz Wiz: This gadget is from Chad's favorite Halloween Prop Creator: Hyde & EEK! Boutique. 

    It's here on Target for $99 as of 10/4/19: https://goto.target.com/9ayL0
