    I am sure Billy Mays would have been able to convince me to buy that. He sold plenty of other crap, why not something to clean it up?

    /Too soon?

    Yet another product we can't do without... icon_rolleyes.gif

    Even over 30 years ago I parodied these things on TV, when in Broadcasting class we had to produce and appear in our own 30-second TV commercial, selling any product of our choice. The goal was to learn using multiple studios cameras with hand-held product close-ups, in a tight 30-second format with rapid takes.

    I couldn't think of anything that really interested me to "sell," so I decided to sell - nothing. I dressed myself up in a kind of carnival barker outfit, and had a friend take a plain white tie and paint question marks all over it that I wore. Then I carved a 10-inch tall question mark out of construction foam that I held as my hand prop for the close-ups.

    I still remember some of the script, which I had to memorize, that went like this, in a fast Billy Mays-like pitch voice:

    "What is it? Don't ask, I don't know! But whatever it is, I'll bet you need one!
    It's portable, it's hand-sized, and you can be the first on your block to have one!
    Amaze your friends, confound your enemies, as they try to figure out what it is, too!
    Supplies are limited, so act now! You won't find this in stores, available only by mail!"
    etc, etc.

    BTW, I got an "A" for it. icon_wink.gif

    He's a cutie. What was he selling again? I was paying more attention to his arms than the actual product.

    No, just right. Plus like Brady said, the guy is actually kinda cute.

    He's better looking than most of those guys. It's also refreshing(no pun intended) that he doesn't have his volume on 10 out of 10.

    Damn! He's cute. Nice arms and that mid section looks nice too.....unless he went to the studioo next door and borrowed one on those compression t shirts I have seen advertised on Logo. The followup commercial he should do is "aaaahh's body wash". icon_biggrin.gif
