That Shamwow Guy

Is it just me or is Vince from the Shamwow commercials really getting on your nerves too? I saw him on my television again the other day when I suddenly had a startling revelation:
plus
equals
That's right: Dafoe impregnated a Gremlin and now their bastard offspring is trying to sell me weird German sponge-towels. They said gay marriage would lead to this but we just didn't listen!

[Update: Welcome to everyone who has found my site by way of StumbleUpon! Please feel free to have a look around Brain Rage.]

[Update II: It has been brought to my attention that Vince directed the Underground Comedy Movie, a particularly raunchy affair that I remember seeing some funny/stupid commercials for several years back. I've never seen it myself but apparently the Church of Scientology got pretty mad at him over its creation (it has also been brought to my attention that he is a former Scientologist). OK, so he's not all bad. I still want him to quit yelling at me though.]

I kind of like him, especially after I learned about his fight against the scientologists.

Anon, he's definitely weirdly entertaining but I just don't like being yelled at. I guess that's why I hate commercials for rap CDs and Billy Mays as well.

Oh my gosh! That is absolutely hilarious! I'd never have thought of Vince as a gremlin but dang if you didn't nail it!!

Good work.

I'd heard that the Slap Chop was Vince's other miracle product. Thanks BR, and keep that rash on the down low, OK?
