Shamwow! or Scamnow!

If you watch any amount of television you’ve seen this commercial:

Every time my daughter sees it she is amazed at how much cola it can pick up even though I keep pointing out that its definitely been edited. What I’ve been fascinated with is the pitchman, Vince.

I’m not alone in this. This Slate article: ‘A jerk you’ll want to buy rags from‘ offers some insight.

All in all, I think I’ll pass on Shamwow!
