ShamWOW vs Funkin Appletini – You Decide

Have you heard of ShamWOW or Vince? How about a Funkin Appletini? Well we are going to do a head to head. ShamWOW versus Funkin Appletini. You decide who would do well in social bookmarking.

I am a bonehead, here is the chewtoy link, I blew the email today, sorry.

First off I funkin love Vince and ShamWOW. He is so ShamWOW anti infomercial he gets attention and you remember who he is. So one of my consulting clients asked me for advice on his friend’s Funkin Appletini video. Funkin Appletini? All kinds of ideas came like Funkin Mix? Funkin Yeah, I could have done Funkin wonders.

The problem is that the guy is funkin boring. He is so funkin boring I funkin could not even find the URL for the funkin video. However, there is some funkin hope. I said: “Hire funkin Vince, his is the funkin #5$*!!!

If you have followed me at all for any time your realize I don’t mince funkin words, I funkin tell it like it is, to my own detrement at times. So I funkin decided I would let you make the decision.

So here is ShamWOW and Vince.

Here is the Funkin Appletini guy

    “You’re gonna love my nuts.”

    Vince is an infomerical icon.

    Lots of lessons in effective direct marketing.

    I don’t know what it is about this
    freaking ShamWow commercial,
    but everytime I see it I am

    I watch it from beginning to
    end like a zombie.

    One things for sure, it doesn’t
    make me want a ShamWow…
    but I can’t help but be entertained.

    My apologies to your buddy, but it was just too easy to have a little fun with the guy.

    Vince is probably short on work too after he got thrown in jail for a motel room fight with a hooker. (she won from the mug shots, just google it)

    What most don’t get is that if you craft your blog posts with some humor, they will do real well in social media. The Appletini video would get me laughed of Digg, the ShamWoW video would be front page pulling many thousands of views.

    But too much Chris Lang coffee in the morning can produce posts like these, hope it gave you a laugh.

    Hehehe. Well, I can’t STAND Vince. Yeah, he’s recognizable alright, but he effectively convinces me NOT to buy anything he promotes. He’s entertaining, but SO phony! (and what’s up with the stupid headset??!! I guess I’m just not a good barometer of the public’s reaction – I can’t stand Billy Mayes either. I know they both sell millions – it reminds me of years and years ago, that your commercial didn’t have to be “liked”, just remembered.

    I LOVE FLO! And if she wasn’t modeled after Abby on NCIS, I”ll eat my chew toy.

    […] Yes! Yes! Yes! Exactingly! We want “Flo the Cashier” my favorite #1 one example of how social marketing should be done via a commercial entity. Janice the cashier is exactly what I would say would be the middle road, if you must be commercial. She is only second to Vince the Slap Chop / ShamWoW guy. […]
