without ever pausing

in their crowded work schedule.

More Americans suffer heart attacks

from lack of exercise.

You know why? Because there aren't

enough hours in the day

to keep physically fit and still function

effectively in one's business.

This is Mr Fielding Mellish,

our research tester,

who will demonstrate the Exec-usiser.

Every part of the body receives

an adequate exercise work-out.

The pedalling develops the muscles

to keep the leg muscles flexible.

When Mr Mellish pulls the drawer out,

a weight has to be lifted

on top of the desk which exercises

his arms and his back muscles.

The telephones are both spring activated.

Both muscles in the biceps are given

a work-out to sustain flexible arms.

On the back wall,

there's a handle for each arm.

As he pulls, the back muscles

are brought into action

in a manner that keeps

the back flexible and strong.

The basketballs

at the side of the machine,

as they're handled by Mr Mellish,

develop reflexes.

- How many can you put out a year?

- We'd like you to manufacture them.

We can let you have the idea,

let you have our package.

We can let you have it all

on a royalty basis.

We can show you how to turn it out.

We can show you how to save money.

- And you think it'll sell?

- No question.

lf we can get it in the office,

we can get it in the armed forces.

You'll do business

with the US government.

l'm not suited to this job.

Where do l come off testing products?

Machines hate me.

l should be working at a job that

l have some kind of aptitude for.

Donating sperm

to an artificial insemination lab.

- Every day we gotta hear this.

- Why did l quit college?

- l could've been something today.

- What would you have been?

l don't know.

l was in the Black Studies programme.
