ShamWow Guy Vince Shlomi Pitches Eminem Album
By PopEater Staff Posted Jun 16th 2010 10:33AM
"Hey, it's Vince with Eminem's new album, 'Recovery,'" he tells viewers in the ad, called "Emwow." "You're gonna be clappin' when you hear Eminem rappin.'"
Shlomi then touts all the uses for the disc, including its ability to "cut razor-thin slices" and chop onions. At the end of the 30-second clip, Shlomi announces a bonus gift with each purchase, the ShamPon.
'Recovery' will hit stores June 21, but was leaked last week.
The 46-year-old pitchman was arrested in March 2009 for allegedly punching prostitute Sasha Harris, who he claims bit his tongue and wouldn't let go during a fight. Photos of the crime scene and from the hospital were released by the Smoking Gun.
Prosecutors later declined to press charges against both.
Shlomi is best known for his commercials selling the ShamWow! products, which claim to be a hyper-absorbent towel. His sarcastic style and quirky delivery made him a mini-Internet star even prior to the arrest. Aside from the ShamWow, Shlomi also spent time hawking the Slap Chop.
