Bionic Hearing Aid
Written by as part of Failure Analysis
In the category of sad celebrity endorsements, I see that actor Lee Majors—now 70—is serving as spokesman for a rechargeable Bionic Hearing Aid. “It won’t cost you six million [actually it costs $215 or so], but you’ll think it’s worth it,” claims the Six Million Dollar Man, whose hearing is presumably failing.
I have to feel sorry for Lindsay Wagner (a.k.a. the Bionic Woman), who must be beside herself that Majors received her endorsement deal. It would be one thing if it was Lens Crafters or Pearl Vision. But she’s the one with the amplified powers of hearing, right?
