King of wind-up and comedian Dom Joly has teamed up with electrical specialist, Comet, to launch the Bluffer's Guide to Gadgets.

Dom Joly set up a market stall in the heart of the capital and revealed that with a large amount of dramatic license and more front than Blackpool, it is easy to bluff the British public into believing almost anything about gadgets. From toasters that can toast an egg to electric toothbrushes which encourage the growth of new 'baby teeth,' it's amazing what people will believe.

Dom says, "I was absolutely astonished. I've done loads of blagging with people in Trigger Happy so I know I can persuade people. But the whole point was I'd start with really ridiculous stuff and then go down to a level people would believe - but they just believed it straight away."

The hidden camera sketch, which is available to view at http://www.comet.co.uk/bluffers , sits alongside Comet's Bluffer's Guide to Gadgets. The downloadable guide condenses the most important information about gadgets so that blagging about technology is within easy reach. It explains all those cryptic terms such as Fanboy, HSPA and L33t in layman's terms, making techy conversations a doddle.

Bob Darke, Comet's Commercial Director explains the background to the sketch:
