Vince Shamwow Video

The Schticky Is the Dark Knight Rises of Infomercials | Underwire | ". . . .the Vince Trilogy. Taken together, Offer’s three ads are one of the most complex and compelling narratives of the 21st century. I’m sure you remember his debut with the ShamWow. It’s a portrait of the confidence and energy of youth (and maybe cocaine), with Vince spitting rapid-fire patter into a headset mic, praising German engineering and challenging the cameraman to keep up with his demonstration. He even went so far as to drop the now-infamous “we can’t do this all day” qualifier to the standard but-wait-there’s-more offer, making it seem like you were being an inconvenience to him by buying the product he is trying to sell you. It’s pure pitchman brilliance."
