HAHAHAHA





Haha! I knew it. Every time this guys commercials come on, I flip out. I've always thought that he kind of had that crack head look to him, and this just reaffirms. The thing that annoys me most about this guy is his stupid little headset. Who the hell you talking to on that thing, bud? And on the dice and chop thing commercial he says, "you're gonna love my nuts".

I dont get it, how is the sham-wow guy that annoying? he has a higher voice but its regular and he dosnt scream like Billy Mayes. He just looks like the rat bastard that owes you money for his crack problem, maybe thats why hes so hated here. At least he talks or explains the product unlike the fanny bandit free credit report band. What they do takes no skill and the only way they know how to advertise is through annoyance. I hate companies who try to get their message stuck in your head. I'll never use free credit report and will always change the channel if those lame half ass songs come up.

personally my seeds of hate were sowed the second time i saw the shamwow commercial and i realized they were using shenanigans and scene editing to make their stains and messes dissappear.

I mean he put the shamwow on the messy liquid and its seeping out the sides, then the camera cuts to a zoom in, he says something, and then they show him punching the shamwow to soak everything up, but the meesy liquid has obviously been cleaned up before they do this as its not as big of a puddle as it used to be, and suddenly its clean.

What annoys me the most is that they dont even try hard, they give away in the commercial ffs that they are scamming you. But its german so it must be good.

Not to mention Mays and (I think) Otter are getting their own reality series soon on one of the Discovery networks.

You should've added an "Other" option for ones like GEICO, especially the Gecko and the Cavemen.



You are right, I forgot about GEICO. Should be because the Caveman and Gecko are on vacation. This is the one on duty for them now...



I always feel like...
