Newly released humorous video, “Works Better than Drano,” shows how everyday products can have other uses. For example, Listerine can be used to clean out clogs in toilets, though it is designed to remove plaque and tarter from teeth, and toothpaste can clean jewelry, beer attract slugs so they get drunk and drown. The video was created by Gini Graham Scott, through her company Changemakers Productions, which specializing in making short videos.

You'll be amazed at the unusual uses you can find for everyday products.

Have you ever tried thinking of novel uses for everyday products? You might find many different possibilities, such as reflected in this newly released humorous video. It begins with a housewife praising the power of Listerine to not only clean plaque and tarter from her teeth, but to clean out clogs in toilets. Next a young man demonstrates how he has found a new use for phone books, which he doesn’t use anymore, since all the numbers are in his smart phone. So he tears out the pages and uses them as paper towels to clean up in his kitchen and polish his car, so he saves money by no longer buying paper towels. Then, a society woman shows how she polishes her jewelry and gets it to shine. Finally, a tough guy who looks like a member of the Mafia shows how he uses beer to entice slugs to drink and then they drown – the perfect solution to getting rid of slugs in the garden. Afterwards, he can drink any left-over beer, too.

The video is one of a series of humorous videos developed by Gini Graham Scott, the owner of Changemakers Productions, who has created a series of videos as a commentary on modern day life. Another one that has gained widespread interest is Bad Bad Banks, a humorous music video about how Wells Fargo and the Bank of America triggered a default and house sale by reducing her credit line.

The company also produces short videos for clients by starting with the script, figuring out the best way to film the project, and putting together a team of actors and crew members to make the video.

The videos are combined with photos and videos from an auction action to save some homeowners home at an auction and from a protest of several hundred demonstrators at Wells Fargo headquarters during the company’s annual shareholder meeting. One is called: The Wells Fargo Protest and Problems with Wells Fargo and the Bank of America
