Vince, I think it's working.

You've seen them, right? The Sham-Wow commercials? Vince.

"You followin' me, camera guy?"

"We can't do this all day!"

"Made in Germany. You know the Germans always make good stuff."

"You'll be saying WOW every time you use this towel."

Then, there's all the people at that flea market picking up their new sham-wows and telling the world that all they can say is Sham-Wow like they've been using them for years and then coming to this flea market to buy new ones all the time! You know this commercial, right? Then, we have this recession so advertising is cheaper, and even with TiVo or a DVR, you see these annoying Sham-WOW commercials all the time. You can't get away from them. Even during the Simpsons, Vince is up there hawking his towels!

It should come as no surprise, then, that when the boys spotted Sham-wow at Bed, Bath and Beyond, they were intrigued. No wait, they were more than intrigued. They were interested. They wanted us to buy Sham-wow! And, we didn't. Because $19.99, that's why! But, still. And, today, a day after our sighting of the now famous sham-wow, Devin asked if we could get some Sham-wow. And, I said I didn't think so. And, he cried.

Great job, Vince! I really think your message is getting out. Your momma should be proud.
