Personally, I'm generally impressed if an item has more than 1,000 reviews on Amazon, but every once in a while I stumble across a product with wayyyyy more than that. My gut reaction is generally to buy it immediately, even if I don't need it.

There are certain items on Amazon that gain cult followings for whatever reason. They range greatly, encompassing everything from electronics to coffee pods to mattress protectors to books. However, the thing they all have in common is their tens of thousands of glowing reviews.

It's safe to say people are fans of this fan.

“I'm quite a large man, my temperature's hot
My blood boils and churns like a cast iron pot
The last fan I had, made hardly a breeze
As sweat pools collected and I smelled like wet cheese
So I looked up this fan, It had good reviews
And it could ship quickly (really good news)
It came in the mail and I plugged it right in
And felt the cool breeze make its way to my skin
I was cool! I was comfy! My attitude shifted
I felt like a schoolbus or house could be lifted
So if you are warm, or god forbid hot
PLEASE BUY THIS FAN, it's the best one I've got.”
