“The pudding show” is a constructed situation between two product sellers that
deals with the themes of product, sales, time and language.
As the video progresses, it becomes more surreal and the gap between the
language the performers use and the actual need to sell a product widens. It
becomes more and more unclear as to what they are selling.
The dialogues are live quoted from telesales programs and through the
performative action become strange - or to say “different” by the way of
inserting the actual product on sale ”pudding” into the logic of the language
used in real telesales programs.
‘’ a super-charming infocomercial terror show’’.
