tankhas brought entrepreneurs to make business presentations to a panel of investors aka the
sharks i enjoy watching this show but i'm explaining it to you as if you've n
everseen it the
sharks then decide if they want to invest their actual money into the entrepreneur's idea it's a lot like the time that chase pitched us on his idea for edible fireworks right but not all ideas are as good as chase's fire snackers in fact some are laughably bad and today we determined the
everit's time for ranked
everwelcome to the rank
tankmythical team members stevie christine jordan and emily have each picked what they believe is the
everyep and their job is to convince us to agree with them all right christine let's start with you i think i want you to start i will gladly start for you the inventions that i chose is ionic ear it's a blue sis device that is surgically implanted into your ear canal um which makes perfect sense and it's not at all crazy um but here's the pitch...
so i could direct your attention to the first slide here is the surgery locations this is just underneath the earlobe the surgery location this is this is surgery you would be under anesthesia good can you stick that needle in your head
every night to charge it yes you would okay you don't think oh my god are you seriously like seriously i need like a small q-tip cylinder that would dock what happens if you miss garrett so you can't miss you definitely don't want to miss what so the fun thing is that he actually does all of the surgeries now i feel better it's good to see dr dunch in in person and so he was making a million dollar investment for 50 equity in his crazy company um only members of the blue man group they're too smart for this um but i don't know it just seems like a crazy invention the fact is to charge your ear
every single night and it's named the implanted like if i was going to pay for implants it definitely wouldn't be into my brain um right but i really like the acronym bd it's not an acronym so they of course funded this no they did not
everyone was just like you're crazy do not do this isn't going well when someone says seriously yeah yeah three times so all he has to show for his invention is this placard which we now have yes okay so we're gonna put this um because it is the
worstthat i've heard so far okay pretty new that's fair and one is closest so there it is okay who's next me and i...
have a question for you do you hate squirrels but want to be the boss watch this clip oh gosh but with squirrel boss if you see a squirrel on your bird feeder and he wears out his welcome just press the remote control and deliver a harmless static shock correction that is similar to walking across the carpet and touching something it tingles but it doesn't hurt you who would like to challenge the squirrel boss i don't feel anything like it took his hand off you see how that works they were way too excited if you'll notice there's two parts to the squirrel boss you have part one oh gosh but i have part two oh no so in order to really uh get the full i'm holding it am i gonna get shocked by holding it up here no you have to you have to touch two coils i recommend um just like a peace sign maybe you peace sign just peace sign that that guy now listen girl carpets in my day and touch something and that hurts a lot worse yeah that is cruel to a squirrel well the weird thing is you have to be a nice enough person to put out food for birds but then hate squirrels like you hate other small animals but you want to feed others you're talking about my father-in-law yeah well that's another i'm going to give him this disappointing he's a masochist this remote was made for old people there's one button but so is the life alert is it that big is that saying like those things confused yes you're just pushing one button you're just shocking...
squirrels meanwhile you're dying you know that's that's all i'm saying watching the feeder oh yeah yeah i mean i'm not gonna lie it sounds like fun but i'm not gonna say that i would actually do it because that's not good for my brand you should just do what my grandfather-in-law did which he would capture squirrels and then paint their tails red and let them loose on the other side of town and if they came back then he would kill him wow yeah or you could just stab him with pitchforks okay uh i don't know because this one could hurt me this one's gonna hurt a squirrel i don't think it's as bad as the hey did they fund it well the crazy because that makes a difference in my mind they rebranded it squirrel baus and then thousands of teen girls just went and bought it yes yes squirrel boss singh got behind it huh yeah did they did they fund it no okay i i i don't know why would i be presenting that to you i don't think you have to ask that question the next two times i mean i'm thinking about finding it all right emily all right so i chose elephant chat uh do you have issues speaking to your spouse about basic stuff um well guess what i got i'm gonna fix it with elephant chat there you go no one likes those we need to talk conversations but they are necessary and most of the time you don't know that you need to have that talk until you start getting the cold shoulder and end up sleeping on the couch until now...
introducing the elephant in the room oh lord so when i see the toilet seat has been left up for the millionth time i don't have to be ready to pounce on him when he walks through the door or be mad when he doesn't realize i'm upset i simply remove the cover and reveal the elephant in the room and one of the best rules about elephant chat is that you can only talk if you're holding the elephant want to be taken seriously hold holy elephant oh very nice oh it's blue and it's got plenty of room just like at
every zoo where i've seen an elephant and just like in his marriage probably um hold up so all you do to say i got a problem is this you just leave it in a room what will probably happen is he watch he's n
evergoing to use this thing he's oblivious he's not using it this is for her yes i think it's very clear yes also her eyes are insane like if you know that those wi-fi she just walks through and she's like but i don't think i could fully pitch this without my work husband helping me out by the way did she buy more red vines no i didn't buy more red vines get off my jock i was riding my jet skis you know all two of them we're also working on so the elephant in the room means we need to talk the dalmatian in the room means it's time to try our sexy fireman role play yes there's two stuffed animals which i bet is horrible for him so is there a break in case of emergency kind of like that's like this is the...
divorce that's what's implied that's what i don't understand i love that yeah i guess if you come home and the elephant's head is separated from the body that that means yeah yeah you put that in the bed sure yeah okay yeah godfather yeah yeah godfather style but yeah if they wanted to sell it for 59. my god and my favorite thing is that jason and amanda are their names she is such an amanda raised a hundred thousand sorry amanda's um raise a hundred thousand dollars from local friends to get this venture off the ground i think it was to get them out of town you can't
every dinner party those people are the
worstthey're probably in fights in public oh gosh yes okay let's figure out where to rank this thing because it's it doesn't do anything i mean i i like i like relationship building i like communication is important um no actual elephants are hurt in the process i mean just in terms of pain i don't know i mean i don't know there's a lot of emotional pain wrapped up in that box jordan you failed me and we're gonna have a conversation about this later the squirrel boss is still very functional though you know mm-hmm yeah okay jordan okay so these are all very bad
productsuh but thank you they're very bad they're i noticed they were very bad you guys did a good job bringing bad
productsbut i have the absolute
worstuh it's a business idea called i want to draw a cat for you and i should probably just...
let the guy who had the idea take it away i want to draw a cat for you i'll draw you a cat that's short and fat i'll draw you a cat with a pork pie hat i'll draw you a cat what
everthe vibe i draw the cat that you describe i want to draw a cat for you i want to draw a cat for you i want to draw a cat for you i want to draw a cat for you okay dude okay draw a freaking cat from a price that ranges from 995 to 1995 he will draw any cat you describe what and this is a service yeah or you pay him money and he draws you a cat he draws you a cat um and we actually reached out to him and he drew some custom rhett and link cats no what look at this two red link welcome to the internet ma'am okay so that is based on your chocolate fountain episode and i think what this is actually the chocolate phone yeah what he was actually saying was welcome to the internet fam but he misheard it and wrote man yeah that is not what i said but it somehow makes it worth more yeah so this is like a 1995 job yes exactly yes this is the 1995 one two cats and an error yes there's also there's a second verse to that song it goes i want to live alone for life a loan for life i mean i i legitimately thought that he was pitching some sort of board game pictionary thing but not like a one-man service yeah no you just do you just send him money and he draws something and then mails it to you you don't feel like meet him on a pier somewhere right it seems like yeah it seems like...
a back alley handoff that's if you want the cat licking its butthole then it's a special you gotta meet him behind the bob's big boy all right uh so yeah mark cuban offered uh 25 000 for a 33 stake in the company uh and he took the deal so this was a six hour mark cuban did this yes mark cuban did can't argue with that guy yeah i don't know he's rich pretty big cheese ball and like all of these clips he's like hey i want you to draw some cats for me he uses a lot of finger guns i feel like aren't cuban okay i mean who gets hurt in this does a squirrel does an elephant or does a i guess art relationship well this is a proven business model though having people draw something for you for a small fee uh it's a it's not a great idea but i don't think it's the
tanki think that's got to be oh you okay i'm just i can't reach three or four yet i'm listening okay well i feel like we should move the squirrel boss all the way down to number four because i mean again setting aside the fact that it squirrels
everywhere being shocked by it it actually is accomplishing the purpose that the person buys it for probably pretty effectively right you want to shock the squirrels do you want to be the boss of squirrels there's a squirrel boss are we making a moral judgment that it's okay by putting it at number four no we're just saying it's the intention of the customer when...
they buy it is fulfilled so i think that what you don't think that's a cat drawing yeah that's why it's number three don't be jealous because she didn't draw a cat for you stevie oh i don't need any cat drawings this side it's one thing to hear about a bad idea it's another thing to have the idea put into your own ear and then you have to charge your ear
