Chinese sound effects machine for radio jockeys?

It has a button labelled Magic therefore you have to buy it. Yes, you.

Sorry about the micro USB ports. Or the battery life.

At least it has "Earplugs" socket!

I would go with cheap&nasty sound effect box for people who aspire to be asshat shockjocks on morning drivetime radio, except they're podcasting from their local Starbucks and keep trying to interview the staff, and who also is the unpopular judge at the local karaoke dive bar. Yes, this may be an excessively negative comment, but the ChiCom Surveillance Unit monitoring us all already has my name in the "Not Nice" database.

It’s obvious why there is a Shock Waye but why 2 Kisses?

If you buy four or more, you get nearly 4% off--while supplies last, I presume.

Aparently it's got a pretty bad clicking problem, probably why it never became popular.

6:40 onwards.

This kind of thing is very popular in some Asian countries where narrations, voice overs, web casting, karaoke nights etc are commonly paired with a small selection of sound effects like silly laughter, 'boing!' noises etc in a new kind of slapstick vaudevillian or punch and judy show manner. Web casting and TV shows often have animated speech bubbles and abstract graphics along with the FX to reinforce what the characters might be thinking or doing. Especially big in South Korea, which is possibly where it originated, and the Philippines (where K-pop and K-TV etc is huge amongst the youth - knows as the Korean Wave).

I was just watching a Taiwanese show yesterday that exactly fits this description. It was kind of hectic and hard to follow what was going on.
Even with the subtitles and my limited Japanese (it was a Japanese guest on a Taiwanese show) I had no idea.

I'd also like to call attention to this;

It looks like these aren't USB jacks but more 1/8" jacks, that you use an adapter cable for? WTH. I guess USB jacks are a lot cheaper than 1/8" ones.

I am very fuzzy on 'dodge'.
Does this evade a heckler for you? Or is it just a short Dodge Ram Truck commercial.
