The skinny mirror design offers a subtle believable slimming reflection designed to help you feel good about your body this is the first model this retails for 165 dollars

anybody can order that piece exactly it is but it is the it’s the intention and the branding of the product okay i get it so you’re trying to tell me that your brand skinny mirror is worth a million dollars today i’ve seen the potential have you taken a look at yourself in the mirror look you know i deal in reality i will oh i will not be part of this sham because that’s why okay that’s fine look look you can smile all you want but the truth is you’re lying to people i’m out but i also forbid any other shark in investing in this

uh i mean i could use one but you know i’m confident who i am

no that’s uh yeah that’s interesting to say the least but i think what’s cool is that she had enough gusto to just do that right a mirror um but brandon right try to brand it and pitch it maybe she’s made some sales um i think it’s uh it’s interesting although she got trashed you know kind of got laughed at in a way by the sharks um you know it’s cool that you can actually go to market you don’t have to have patents you don’t need to get worried about oh my gosh someone rip it off you can have a compelling story um and try to make a make a brand of it do you do you know they’re still in are they still in business and all i mean i just looked at their trademark registration yeah it was abandoned i was canceled back 20 so i don’t know if they’re still in business or not when you file a trademark at the uspto um in the application in the registration it’ll list if you have a trademark council assigned to the assigned to the trademark in this particular case there’s no attorney of record so um either the owner filed it herself or someone that they know filed it but there’s no trademark returning um and we often see that a lot of times if you’re not if you’re filing trademarks yourself without it without an attorney often times those trademarks go abandoned because people forget to renew them so i don’t know if that’s the case here or not but it was not uh renewed and uh is no longer uh registerable yeah yeah i mean a lot of people believed in it i mean she actually raised 750 000 on kickstarter wow and they sell for guess what the guess what the high-end version of a premiere sold for

  1. 675.

you know you better look really skinny [Laughter] so they have different frames right handmade you know the intricate design but it’s just that i think what made it unique was this um uh perception right that this is this positive amount of attitude
