Hi sharks i’m bill pierce and i’m summer bill’s wife and i’m caleb bill’s cousin and together we’re team papa pal we’re seeking 250 000 in exchange for 10 equity in our company sharks millions of people worldwide love popping zits

and pimple popping has gone viral with thousands of videos being viewed every day but popping pimples is a bad habit and has nasty side effects such as germs scars and let’s face it more zits but now you can squeeze as much as you please that’s right sharks we’ve invented pop it pal the world’s first ever pimple popping simulator oh simulator seriously pop it pal comes with 16 ready-made pimples which allows you to relieve stress and get that extreme satisfaction that comes when popping a pimple you simply squeeze the zit and that’s it one way there’s more crazy pal is refillable there’s no longer a need to pick your face or your partners and sharks this is just the beginning we’re ready to build an empire of unique obsessions so sharks who’s ready to get things flopping just cool

i wouldn’t want to buy it but i just am just so impressed that they could come up with a product like that they had 315 000 in revenue the year before and then they were hoping to get 900 000 next year incredible i mean people were buying this some probably as a joke gift so in terms of patenting okay the layperson when they see that like what could possibly be the utility in that but i want to just help people understand that the utility you know technical level for a patent is very low meaning that is eligible for patent protection because it’s entertaining it doesn’t actually have to provide any real benefit per se to you know helping people pop pimples or that type of thing um so it’s it’s wild you can actually get a utility patent for that i did look it up and the i believe that they are now abandoned their pending application it was patent pending but i know they do have they’re asserting that that registered trademark for poppet pal um so anyway i just wanted to just mention that quickly about utility impacts that even something as silly as poppet powell could be patent protected yeah it’s registered from a trademark perspective too um you know pop it pal i mean it’s a pretty you know i don’t know it’s not a very unique name i guess you would call it i mean it’s unique name in the sense that like yeah well anyway i don’t need to get that it is registered though as a trademark both for a word mark it’s the letters of the name and a design mark and to your point jd um and this isn’t always the case but it does follow suit in terms of how it’s registered at the uspto this is registers a toy
