So, I know this video isn’t going up until two Saturdays from now (we film in advance) but I have to write about it right away before I film: I’m queasy as hell now. HOOOOOOOOO so dizzy. I think it might have been from me putting the glasses on and off, but my sense of equilibrium is seriously off right now. Yeebus! I feel weird!

I’m pretty sure that if people use these glasses, they won’t do what we did with them, like try to walk around with them and stuff, so I don’t think you’ll have the same issues I’m having now. It was actually quite cool being able to see my iPad from my stomach. I think…I think I’ll just have to be more calm about it next time.

Ok! I walked around for a bit and got my balance back. Ate a cookie. I don’t feel drunk anymore. Side note: I’m pretty dedicated to just hop onto blog post writing immediately while feeling queasy as hell.

Anyhow, if you want to get these for someone as a gift, or even for yourself, you can pick it up from Gmarket. I realize that for some of our WTF videos we mention things being on Gmarket but never actually tell you where to get the items, and then everyone links to it in the comments, which is another reason why we love you as commenters so much: YER SO HELPFUL! But it makes sense for us to link to the item in our videos, just in case you want the item for yourself.

On that note, make sure you click on the button below, right here, so you don’t miss out on any more of our WTF Korea videos. It also cures drunkenness, in case you’re feeling a bit wibbly-wobbly right now:

  1. I wanted to order one of these glasses soooo badly, but I kept on looking forward to my goal next summer to visit South Korea instead. That meant that saving the 8 dollars for soju was more important.

  2. I found these glasses on Amazon (with Prime shipping) for those who want to buy these. http://smile.amazon.com/niceEshop-Horizontal-Glasses-Refraction-Spectacles/dp/B00BLHJVII

    Definitely looking forward to becoming a snail! :D

    Cannot unsee Simon the snail, haha! Those seem nice, but would they work when you’re wearing normal glasses, I wonder?
    Also like that you seem to be using TTMIK’s book Martina, since you’re partnering up with them and all^^ I used them for a while in high school, before actually studying Korean at uni :D

  4. these are awesome, i should get it shipped to my friend in Korea so she can bring it back for me :P

  5. What learn Korean book is Martina reading? Anyone know?

    Also, posting via firefox.

  7. BJ Buelhman

    Those glasses are for used to aid people with limited mobility (e.g. bed ridden, neck injured). It is a device that is used to help people in PT or OT

  8. Kpop Goyangi

    Why did you have to show me this site……why. I will have to fight the urge to buy random stuff now. I found some furniture I really want XD

  9. Kaila Victoria

    This is honestly my favorite WTF so far.
    I don’t usually physically laugh out loud at videos (Cause saying “lol” for people usually just means breathing out more nose air than usual.) but omg I was dying at snail Simon XD *Claps* well done, EYK!

  10. love the fact you were reading a talktomeinkorean textbook! They are so good!

  11. WHAT GENERATION IS YOUR IPAD?! IPAD GENERATION 1980’S ITS A FULL COMPUTER XDDDD MARTINA NO STOP! XD I was feeling a bit down today but that alone totally cheered me up. <3 I love you guys. :D And after this I think I should rewatch the WTF with the panty hats. That ALWAYS makes me laugh like a lunatic and always makes me feel good. XD SIMON GETS THE PANTIES OFF~! XDDD! I AM SO DONE. <3

  12. Elizabeth Dill

    oh my gosh i need those glasses!!! such a great invention!!!
    ahahah gross Simon does look like a snail!!

  17. So how many mirrors/lenses are in those glasses? Wouldn’t everything be back to front?

  18. Sarah Ruth <3

    So I have no idea how familiar y’all are with Star Wars, but the first thing I thought of when I saw Simon was that funky female singer on Jaba’s ship in episode 6. I laughed so hard!!! Simon you are too great.

  19. vannia

    oh my goood!! this is awesome….also that snail thing was def creepy. Now I wonder if I could wear my actual glasses under them

  20. Gracie グレイス

    Omg i couldnt stop laughing at the closeup of simons face. He looks so much like a snail AHAHAHAH!

  21. Actually, my boyfriend got this for a white elephant :P they were purchased from our friend on Amazon! And he loves them!

  22. lumierenoire

    Those snail eyes though… Just… so much laughter after a week of tests/exams for those few moments of snail Simon. o_O
    I actually have dropped an iPad on my face… and got a bloody nose from it. One should never try to hold something up while being half-awake. o3o And this is why I usually read books on my side…

    • How long are your arms that you could drop an ipad from a far enough distance to bloody your nose? Or are you Mr Fantastic? :)

      • lumierenoire

        My arms are actually pretty short. But my nose is really sensitive. I get bloody noses with almost any sort of impact unfortunately. OTL Don’t get me started on how often I get nosebleeds from someone opening a door into my face…

  23. Janet Okabe

    :D I remember those glasses! I watched Jun Hyun Moo wearing those things on ‘I live alone’ variety show! I had to agree with Martina, I was like seriously? wtf yo? then he used it to watch tv while lying down. As soon as I saw Martina dissing those glasses I thought to myself, ” uh-huh, sure Martina, in the next few moments ur gonna wish u had those too.” LOL ;p i smiled like an idiot~

  24. Jasper Vue

    Time is just a ball of Wibbly Wobbly Timey Whimy!!! Hahaha hello whovians! :-D

  25. My first thought when this WTF started was that those were pervy glasses. I laughed so hard when you said the same thing Martina! They look super creepy put the perks seem so good.

  26. I need halp! It wants me to select something but its in korean :( what do I click on the g market page?

  27. I really love the background for this video xD Seems really fun of an item, too!
    Btw, you should know that when I’m on your site via Chrome, the comment field won’t work and it hasn’t been working for a while now and still isn’t. Only reason I can comment is because I’m on Opera ;w;

    • PromisesNoelle

      yes! it is all sorts of effed on chrome… :( so sad.

    • Ara

      Same thing happened with me and I just cleared my cache etc, works fine now!

    • Susan Horak

      I had to clear my history and cookies on Chrome for the comment section to work properly earlier. That may work for you.

    • I use Chrome and I don’t have problems. I think it’s most a DISQUS problem where they just have lots of bugs (which they sometimes resolve quickly – particularly if you tweet them). At least that’s been my experience.

    • PunkyPrincess92
      PunkyPrincess92

      i’m not the only one with the problem?
      only reason i’m commenting is cos i’m on incognito mode!! it’s so annoying but it’s the only way i can right now!!

    • Sorry for the commenting issues. We’re working on switching over to a new commenting system. A few people have mentioned the issues. We’ve got something cool in the works. Not as ultra functional as Disqus, but at least less buggy

      • Fafou Them

        Okay. Good to know about the switch to a new commenting system. But that hasn’t quite been my issue with the videos as of late (commenting has always been fine for me).

        I kind of noticed that when you link your videos to you’re blogpost, you don’t have playlist mode anymore. I have to physically click on the next videos in the line-up. Is that because you can’t do playlist mode anymore ever since youtube updated?

        • YouTube had some wonky update, and now whenever we try to embed a Playlist it won’t show any videos anymore. I’m not sure how to fix it :(

        • Fafou Them

          :( Boo. Bummer.
          I really hate it when sites change without telling you how to do certain things. It really is inconvenient.

          Thanks for answering my question though!

      • I have to use Chrome to comment cause Firefox doesn’t work for comments for me now, when it used to. :/ Disquis just doesn’t load on there.

    • Katie

      I had the same problem with firefox and I found that deleting all of my cookies fixed it. It was kind of a pain because you’ll have to log back into everything but it was the only thing that worked for me lol.
      That being said, videos haven’t been embedded properly on here for a while for me. Clearing my cookies didn’t fix that and idk why. I haven’t tried using another browser so I’m not sure if it’s ff or what. :/

    • Breann Johnson

      I use Chrome and I don’t seem to have the same problem : /
      Have you tried updating?

  28. Katie

    Snail-Simon omg I’m dying

  29. Breann Johnson

    I found similar mirror glasses on amazon too. I really want some of these now! I will have less neck problems staying up watching cartoons.

  30. Am I the only one who thought that while SImon was wearing those glasses (in aerial view), he had those superhero or super villain eye mask things that hides their identity?

  31. I want them sooo much since i saw them to jack nicholson in the movie “The pucket list”

  32. Bonnie Lynn Katzell Muench

    that’s hilarious…

    • Bonnie Lynn Katzell Muench

      It’s funny how you find all the crazy fun stuff. Nor sure I would want something rjatbwould possibly make me feel upside down or is it right side up. Definitely weird…

  33. Maricela Cendejas

    am i the first one?
