Oprah choosing her "Favorite Things"
Here we see Oprah behind the scenes as she chooses her "Favorite Things" to talk about on the Oprah Winfrey show. For those unfamiliar with the ways of Queen Oprah, the Favorite Things show is awesome because the audience members get ridiculous amounts of free stuff (such as cars) and pretty much every product she features becomes insanely popular and sells out everywhere immediately. This has been christened the "Oprah effect."
Before my mom and I sold our lingerie store, we carried La Perla sweat pants. These were $100 sweats. Women would come in all the time and say "Ooh I saw this on Oprah's Favorite Things!" Thank you Oprah for compelling women to buy fantastically comfortable yet pricey sweats.
