Ok, so let’s begin this by saying that this isn’t a very common item in Korea. We asked our Korean friends about it, and they’ve never seen it before. That doesn’t make it any less of a Wonderful Treasure Find. That just means we’re totally in the dark about this one.

We found it at the Watson’s, which is kind of like a Shopper’s Drug Mart (if you’re Canadian) or a Walgreens (I’m assuming…if you’re American). Sorry we can’t find any other equivalents for people of other countries! Anyhow, they’ve got lots of cool/weird/wtf beauty items there, and this one definitely caught our attention. It’s a mouth stretcher. The science behind it is beyond us. What exactly are you stretching your mouth for? Does a wider mouth make you prettier? Some really wide mouths are scary. We thought it might be a smile trainer: we saw a documentary a while ago called the Human Face starring John Cleese (awesome documentary, by the way), and in it they showed classes in Japan that taught you how to smile. They would train people how to smile by making them bite on pencils for a while, similar to how we held the “A Oh” mouth stretcher. Is that what this is for? Training people how to smile? Because, let’s just say this loud and clear: if you need to put this contraption in your mouth to teach you forcefully how to smile, then that’s…really sad. How about just watching something funny. Laughing is an easier way to smile than using the A Oh Mouth Stretcher.

We’re not even sure if Mouth Stretchers is the proper term for them. Simon originally wanted to call them “Mouth Hole Stretchers” but Martina was really grossed out at the idea of stretching out a mouth hole. It sounded a lot grosser than intended. So we dropped the “hole.” Anyone know what these things are really called? Or for that matter, if they work? Has anyone used these before? We’ve enabled anonymous commenting, FYI, so don’t be ashamed to say if you used them or not. We won’t think any less of you! We might ask for picture evidence, though, just to prove that you’re not trolling.

Anyhow, congrats to BornPhenomenon for winning the Circle Lens contest! Carrot Top would definitely look really freaky with Circle Lenses on. Uhhh! We tried visualizing it, but quickly abandoned the thought, and couldn’t fall asleep afterwards for the first half of the night. If you are Born Phenomenon, please send us an email with your contact info, and we’ll get you in touch with Angelic Rain who will provide the circle lenses. Huzzah! If you didn’t win the contest, we’re sorry! Though we can’t give away a pair for free, what we can do is give you a discount on them if you’re interested in buying some! Head over to Angelic Rain’s site, and enter the code EYK at the checkout for a 10% discount. Yay!

  1. Ya all are idiots. It’s a toy version of a BSDM mouth stretcher. I used one on a sub because I wanted her to take both my cock and balls into her mouth at the same time. It works wonders,standing over the top of her,watching my semi-soft cock slide downward into her throat then pulling her lips wider and stuffing my bag into her snug little mouth.

  2. hey that…contraption was on ep 12 of season 3 of TOSH.O
    it’s supposed to be an exercise apparently.

  3. Boots or superdrug if you’re from England!

  4. Supremehaeng

    I  think that it is used for thinning your cheeks.ㅋㅋㅋ

  5. Eleanna Nikol

    OMG ~~~!!! that was sooo funny !!!!!!!! i love you guys!!!!!

  6. Daydreamny

    lol! I need to get for fun.

  7. animegurl155

    You guys are seriously The Cutest Couple, you’re perfect together! How did y’all meet? ^^

  8. Dear Martina and Simon: this is probably a practice/warm-up tool for singers. When you sing on stage you are supposed to open your mouth really wide for the clear sound. Needless to say, good pronunciation is also a must. This kind of practice tool helps improve your control of facial muscles surrounding your lips, there are tons of exercises for that. Remembering how my instructor used to make me walk around with a wine cork stuck between my upper and lower teeth (“keep your mouth open to this degree, for an hour. yes, an hour. you can’t? ok, bite on this… now you can, BWAHAHAHAHA”), I find this mouth stretcher thingie very smart!

    if you want to check how it works, go to karaoke, and try saying ah-oh-ah-oh (or eeh-oh-eeh-oh) repeatedly for some time with this stretcher in your mouth, paying attention to stretch your mouth as far as possible in the right direction (right-left for ah’s/eehs and up-down for oh’s), don’t forget the correct breathing too (use your belly). after 5 to 10 minutes of this idiocy, start singing. I don’t know how much difference can there be after a single warm-up session, but there’s still a big chance you’ll do better than usual!

    Oh. My. FREAKING. Gosh. I just laughed so hard I was crying! I couldn’t even breathe properly! LOL!! “Hippopatomuf.”

    This is a thing to train the muscles in your face to avoid wrinkles. It has been sold in europe and northern america in ridiculous TV-ads under the name Facial Flex. Just google it and you’ll see some youtube videos that will make you laugh.

    Some wind musicians (mostly clarinetists) use it to train their embochure (“position and strength of the lips”)
    .

  11. I saw this in Hong Kong. It’s suppose to slim your face. invented by Japanese apparently. hehe…

  12. IT'S ME :D

    This is actually used to help lose cheek fat :)
    do the “ah” and “oh” sound, and it helps lose chubby cheek~!

  13. the weirdest treasure find ever :P i couldnt stop laughing with all the jokes XD
    B2ST rules! :D … and also SuJu .. oh gosh im really hoping they’re coming to Chile *O*

  14. “It’s called love” HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH

  15. I can imagine a debator using it minutes before his debate showdown to help him with his speech.

  16. i saw this in youtube called facial flex… is it the same thing?

  17. This looks like something I saw on the QVC network one time here in the States. Apparently its used for facial exercising? Its supposed to strengthen your cheeks, neck, and chin area. Its for those people with the droopy chins I guess? Anyway here’s a link to it on the QVC site…

  19. CarolinaDannie

    I would have to agree with the choice of Carrot Top, but folks in Korea know who he is?

  20. SO funny!

  25. Mildly traumatising video about the “Mouth stretcher”…. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etU_wtP5Pck&feature=player_embedded

    Saw this not so long ago on a friends FB wall.

  26. ohhh i’ve heard of this, i think its supposed to be for people who want a better smile,or for people who think their mouths are too small or something

  27. sadly, I’ve seen this product in America. It’s something to use the strengthen you cheek muscles and also reduce laugh lines.

  28. It helps you to pronounce words clearly. :)

    Watson is probably equivalent to Boots or Superdrugs in UK :)

    Maybe they’re for Onew cosplays?

  31. Simon is a redditor? Nice.

    /fellow redditor

    • We’re both Redditors. We’re just not that good at using Reddit yet…

      • It’s an acquired skill lol. Once you start getting some karma it’s addictive. I wonder if you’re any of the famous persons I always see in subreddits though. Maybe Martina is I_RAPE_CATS and Simon is andrewsmith1986 trololo.

        I’m kidding :3 You’re awesome! And where does moofoo originate from? It’s not the first time I saw it but I can’t remember. Was it from the “mirror” “mi-err” episode?

        • Ha! No, our username on reddit is just simonandmartina. So creative!

          Anyhow, the moofoo thing was from a couple of blooper reels back. We can’t remember. We just say Moofoo all the time now, so much that it’s difficult to remember when it started :D

  32. It’s an anti-aging tool–it’s a facial exercise trend to prevent sagging as one gets older. The “AH” is widening everything on your face (open your eyes big too), and the “oh” is a contraction of the jowel area. The theory is if you use the muscles they won’t start falling off your bones later :D

  33. This is kinda weird…. Then you brighten the mood by singing BONAMANA. What song was the uh oh part. It’s by U-Kiss… I think. Please tell me.

  34. Jaymes Oh

    Wouldn’t Marilyn Manson Look creepier than Carrot Top LOL! I really wanna win, simonandmartina. <////3

  35. Jaymes Oh

    Wouldn’t Marrilyn Manson Look more creepy than Carrot Top LOL! I really wanna win, simonandmartina. <////3
