->''"Will it blend? That is the question."''

A Web series found throughout Website/YouTube, ''Will It Blend?'' is a ViralMarketing campaign consisting of a series of infomercials demonstrating the Blendtec line of blenders, especially the Total Blender. In the show, Tom Dickson, the Blendtec founder, attempts to blend various items in order to show off the power of his blender.

Blendtec is the master of the DeceptivelySimpleDemonstration. It's actually ''easier'' to blend a hard item like a mobile phone or a golf ball than it is to perform normal blending tasks such as pureeing vegetables. A mobile phone isn't going to form a thick half-pureed liquid that coats the walls of the blender and leaves the blades spinning around in a bubble of air. However, they do blend some soft things as well as normal food items.

And while they have listed things that ''shouldn't'' be blended, [[DontTryThisAtHome that hasn't stopped some people from trying this themselves...even after they've been specifically told not to.]] Tom and his blender appeared in the Music/{{Weezer}} video "Pork N Beans;" after that, Tom returned the favor by blending a can of pork and beans (can and all) with a copy of Weezer's so-called "Red album."

He and his blender have appeared on plenty of morning talk shows, as well as the Discovery Channel, and even on the History Channel's LongRunner Series/ModernMarvels.
!!Will it trope? That is the question:

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: The [[MadeofIndestructium Boron Steel]] episode (Ford Fiesta ad). "First I tried to saw it, drill through it, torch it... I even jumped on it."
* BigNo: Heard in the background when breaking the iPad and blending the iPhone.
* BodyHorror: Tom pulling off his own hand in the "Tom's Hand" episode, and blending it into a bloody soup.
* CatchPhrase:
** "[subject] smoke -- don't breathe this!"
*** Sometimes [[InvertedTrope Inverted]], for non-harmful items as "[subject] smoke -- you can breathe this!"
** "I think I'll press the [name related to subject] button!"
** "Will it blend? That is the question."
* ChristmasEpisode: "Christmas Dinner" and "Elf on the Shelf".
* ChromaKey: Whenever a green screen is used, it's normally {{parodied}}; for example, in the Ford Fiesta video, the view outside the car is changed from the Blendtec headquarters to various silent films of train crashes and bridge collapses, among other ridiculous things.
* DontTryThisAtHome: And don't breathe this. They will distinguish the things you can try at home. Those won't do more than make a minor mess in your blender.
** Taken {{up to eleven}} in the Bic lighter episode. Tom even lampshades it.
-->'''Tom''': You ''really'' don't wanna try this one at home.
* FakeoutOpening: One video seems to start off by trying to blend a crowbar -- until someone's phone goes off, so the ''phones'' get blended instead.
* ForegoneConclusion: Most of the time, it will blend.
* HalloweenEpisode: The "Skeleton" Episode and "Tom's Hand"
* HilarityEnsues
* LoopholeAbuse: Tom gets around dangerous warnings like "don't puncture or cut" with "well, it doesn't say don't ''blend''!"
* MadeofIndestructium: The "Blend Tec Total Blender" has been shown blending things such as a [[TonkaTough Nokia 3310]] & a {{Creator/Nintendo}} UsefulNotes/{{Wii}}mote. [[spoiler:It did fail to blend a Creator/ChuckNorris action figure & a block of boron steel, though]].
* ProductPlacement: While the entire show is a plug for Blendtec, several companies have requested their products be blended for this purpose.
* RealityBreakingParadox: On [[MayanDoomsday December 21st,]] [[MeaningfulReleaseDate 2012]], Tom decided to blend a Blendtec Total Blender, despite numerous warnings that the world would end if he did so. He did it anyway, stating "[[WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong Like that's gonna happen]]".
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Dickson's family members have sometimes influenced what he blends.
* RockersSmashGuitars: Since Tom couldn't fit the ''VideoGame/GuitarHero'' guitar into the blender, he did a Pete Townshend on it.
* RunningGag: Many items are supposedly chosen because they caused something bad to happen to Dickson.
---> "Uncle Floyd was playing the Wii with the grandchildren, and while he was bowling - strapless - he destroyed ''[[OhNoNotAgain another]]'' TV. So I am going to blend the strapless Wiis."
