Who can forget the classic, Veg-O-Matic and the Miracle Brush? Both products sold millions — these campy fun classics have become part of pop culture history. ‘But Wait, There’s More!…If you act now!’ The iconic K-Tel was founded by Philip Kives, an innovator and legend in direct marketing and creator of the first infomercial.
