ShamWOW

Posted by Philip James, Mar 28, 2009.

The news itself is shocking:

But, I'm even more surprised that the ads are STILL on TV. This is a product that housewives would buy. How does it look when your spokesperson is beating prostitutes?

I really thought they would have pulled the ads - its been 12 hours.

This doesn't surprise me in the least. That guy always creeped me out.

It appears that this is the one time that he couldn't "Slap his troubles away."

I saw the commercial last night so they don't appear overly concerned yet.

I own Shamwows and those things are cool. I test them all tha time. And if some braud was trying to bite your tounge what? you would continue and allow her to go down low. I'd probably would have shamPow'd her too.

Well, she bit his tongue because the "transaction" was agreed as "no kissing." I wouldn't have kissed her in the first place.

You know, if I were the kind of dude to get hookers.

Why pull the ad?

The target Shamwow market is never going to find out about him - I doubt they watch VH-1, Comedy Central or read the Snooth forums much and I can't see this getting much play in the real media.

But the Shamwow market is women... Not ideal to have a spokesperson who punches your target demographic in the face.

I don't believe the target demographic thinks that they have much in common, beyond their gender, with a $1,000 hooker.

So long as this story stays off of Oprah, Shamwow's ok for the medium term. Although, they might want to shell out for Billy Mays for their next commercial.
