Colin Chapman. Flex Tape is not the answer. No famous person is safe from the ultimate hazard of success in America: litigation. And also people complaining loudly, publicly, and in Amazon product reviews. One user also said "the only thing it sticks to is skin. Still, a few bad reviews on Amazon 36 percent are one-star rating, which is more than "a few," isn't really the worst part of it. Twenty-six complaints have been filed with the Better Business Bureau , which granted is a pretty small number compared to what the company has probably sold overall, but some of the complaints accuse the company not of false advertising but of overcharging.

Some customers say they were sent more product than they ordered, were charged full price for it, and were given no easy way to change the order after placing it. Finally, there are the class-action lawsuits. Or really, just one dude on YouTube who says he wants to put together a class-action lawsuit because Flex Seal destroyed his pond.
Poor consumers. If only they knew, "When the product doesn't perform as expected, it's typically because the product was not applied correctly. Flex Seal has a whole video about all the celebrities who love their products, which as it turns out is Jerry Seinfeld for like 16 seconds on Jimmy Kimmel, Daniel Tosh, David Letterman, musician Josh Homme who made a single joke about it on The Talking Dead , and a couple of B-list celebrities no one has ever heard of. We can't really fault Flex Seal for wanting to capitalize on the handful of celebrities who have mentioned them in passing, but it does seem like kind of a stretch to say celebrities love Flex Seal.
Even Jerry Seinfeld's gush "there is nothing that the product cannot do! Maybe the company should be sending free samples out to everyone in Hollywood so they can build a longer list of celebrities who mention the stuff on television. We'd like to suggest Lucas Till, for a start. Who is more qualified than MacGyver to show the world just how awesome Flex Tape can be, especially when combined with a wad of chewing gum and the pop top from a can of Coke?
What world problems could not be solved? Long, long ago, people figured out they could raise brand awareness with T-shirts and hoodies, which was probably around the same time people realized they could also turn entire cars into high-speed billboards. JD Motorsports is just as gushy about their sponsor as every other normal human with an occasional need to coat, seal, and protect.
So besides taping a car back together after a crash, Flex Seal and Flex tape get used for regular, everyday car maintenance? Has JD Motorsports actually read the Amazon reviews? Just wondering. Fortunately, and this doesn't seem staged or just waaaay too convenient at all, there was plenty of Flex Tape on hand because duh, it would have been really embarrassing if the pit crew for a NASCAR car with the words "Flex Tape" written all over it had nothing but a roll of Gorilla Tape stashed in its toolbox.
Anyway, according to JD Motorsports , Smithley's car was repaired using Flex Tape, and then he went on to finish eighth in the race. Maybe some rules need to be changed at NASCAR — surely it's unfair for a driver to use such a supernatural performance enhancer in the middle of a race? So now you have 17 rolls of Flex Tape, but you just can't bring yourself to saw your boat in half. What else can you do with all that Flex Tape? Fortunately, the Flex Seal blog has some ideas. Since we know Flex Tape is awesome at sticking to living things, the first obvious choice is to use it as a bug trap.
If you don't like that idea, you can use Flex Tape on your furniture feet to prevent scuffing because cutting circles of super-sticky Flex Tape with your household scissors is way more practical than buying a pack of felt furniture pads that are the same price as a roll of Flex Tape and, you know, actually designed for the purpose. You can use Flex Tape to tape your license plate to your car because everyone knows license plate holders and screws are for suckers.
You can also use it to tape on your rearview mirror, tape your hood closed, and fix your cracked bumper.

Yes, it truly is nature's most divine substance. Flex Tape is good for so much more than just taping boats together. It's also a great way to prank someone. You could, you know, cut up your neighbor's boat and tape it back together or something, although come to think of it, that would probably not make you very popular with your neighbor, so maybe don't do that. The crew cut up a bucket "That's a lotta damage! Except it wasn't the Flex Taped bucket, it was another bucket, which means Barkley actually ended up soaked. After the crew revealed the switch, they offered to demo the real Flex Taped bucket but oops, they ran out of time.
So Flex Tape got some brand recognition, while no one actually got to see whether the stuff works. So … that worked out fine for Flex Tape then. For Halloween , the company announced a Phil Swift pumpkin carving competition, and just in case you aren't creative enough to figure out how to make your pumpkin look like Phil Swift, they even provided the stencil.

No purchase necessary! For fans who may not relish the thought of pulling the guts out of their Phil Swift pumpkin, Flex Seal also sponsored a "big head" giveaway on Instagram — winners received autographed copies of Phil Swift's giant head. Why should I give my big head to you? Perhaps declaring your everlasting devotion is not enough.
Perhaps you want to do more than just spend hours online, obsessively googling "Flex Tape" and "Phil Swift.
