He is awesome. I don't think I can buy the ShamWow just based on his super strong East Coast Accent. It doesn't exactly make me trust him.

Covino and Rich had an informercial week a couple weeks back. They had Ron Popeil, their regular John Basedow, Billy Mays and more. Those are great radio guests!

Looks useful if you need two teaspoons worth of ingredients...

I like the slimming wraps, suction cups, snail lotion and the other "Melt-away-the-pounds" scams on the spanish TV stations. Theuy seem to be flying under the radar of most

I always thought it looked like they were wearing their robe backwards.
That's what I thought. A blanket with armholes. A modern day poncho, if you will. Might go well with the Urban Sombrero...






The gray haired old man with the red robe looks like a monk or something...

What is your favorite infomercial.
Anything with hot bitches working out. I'm partial to TURBO JAM!!! I think I'm in love with that Chalene Johnson.

I'd like to ShamSlap that guy.

I'd also like to give the Billy carpet stain guy a Frontolateral laryngectomy (removal of the vocal cords.)
He always disturbs my inner calm with all of that damned yelling.

Not that I have any hostility mind you.

Vince Offer is the MAN! He sells the shamWOW and Slap-N-chop like a top notch county fair huckster. I could watch those commercials every day. I'm an infomercial junkie, although I'd never buy any of that crap. They are all scams that charge you retarded S&H and get you locked into automatic renewal crap that is impossible to cancel.

Here is the scam I picked up in the ShamWow commercial.

He pours the cola on the piece of carpet, then shows the bottom. There is cola everywhere, moving in front of the carpet piece, etc.

The camera cuts away for a half second and he says "we're going to do this in real time, can you keep up camera guy?"

The carpet piece is switched, then he pulls 50% of the cola with the ShamWow. Then he pats the ShamWow and gets all of it.

Then he pulls it up to see the bottom of the carpet, It is a brand new piece and there is no drop of cola.

What a scammer. :rolleyes:
