Uh... it's a commercial. And not a very interesting one.
Actually, its painfully funny. The joke being: who in the hell thought this was the kind of spokesperson you needed to sell the super-towel?
"I know! We'll get one of those squinty eyed guidos fom the lower east side who deal the sidewalk card games! It'll be brilliant!"
Also: "You know the Germans always make great stuff."
My bad, this version doesn't include the part of the pitch that focuses on German ingenuity. You can see the bold red MADE IN GERMANY! at the end though.

Why would you need a 10 year warranty for a towel?
Wait...you mean to tell me that this is a real commercial for a real product? I thought it HAD to be satire.
who is he talking to on that magic headset? is there a network of shamwowmongers across the globe?
Big Beef Burritos Supreme
Maybe... they pulled him out of the call center to make the advert. Maybe they just thought it looked important and sales-like, akin to Boiler Room or something.
It's so he can have his lines fed to him as he goes.
He is Johnny Knoxville and Moe Szyslak's love-child.
I was going to submit this about a week ago, but I couldn't find the long version. I don't understand why he's so rushed about everything. It's like he's doing us a exhausting favor telling us about this towel.

Can we all agree that we would never mock the commercial or the product if they just stuck with Billy Mays? Let that be a lesson to you ad companies.
The sad part is, this product is direct competition for another one of these chamois things that IS sold by Billy Mays. Both of the ads run on the TV station i work for. I'm still waiting for the opportunity to put both ads back-to-back.
Ey! Are you keepin up wit me cam-ra man!
|Big Beef Burritos Supreme |
I'm thinking the audience doesn't know or care how to spell chamois, and that it's probably artificial anyway.
And what's a ten year towel warranty all about?
The "ten year" warranty sort of things you see on these commercials is a meaningless guarantee to get you to feel confidence in the person selling you the product. The fact is, the product simply will not be made in ten years time - let alone one years time - so the warranty is worthless.

What if I spill my jagerbomb? Will it clean up skanks?

Fuck you. Buy Shamwow.
Vince Offer is a better pitchman than Billy Mays was. He can modulate his voice *and* has multiple hand gestures.
