I suppose it’s the natural cycle of the TV informercial host. Rise to fame, ride the crest, and the eventual usurping by the younger competitor. Who can forget Ron Popeil? And of course the venerable Billy Mays with his trademark “shout speak”?
When he burst onto the scene hawking the ShamWow, newcomer Vince Offer was a fresh face injecting new life into the shammy business. Looking to capitalize on the energy he exudes with his nifty headset and condescending manner, he’s moved to dicing foods. SlapChop, complete with double entendres about nuts and the apparent connection between boring lunches and a boring life, is sure to become a classic.
