Colon Cleansing Duel: Danny Vierra vs. Klee Irwin

One of the all time great knock-down, drag-out TV infomercial feuds has broken out. I’ve written about it before but now I’ve found the video so that everyone can see this crap-fight for themselves.

The original version of the Almighty Cleanse infomercial contains an infamous scene in which Danny Vierra identifies himself as a “Christian health evangelist” and then goes through the Old and New Testaments citing passages he believes endorse various types of “purifying and cleansing” cures. Contrary to what many people assume, Danny Vierra never says on the infomercial that colon cleansing itself is in the Bible nor that the entire formula for his product is found in the pages of the Scripture. He does, however, say that the same kind of clay Jesus used to heal the blind man is an ingredient in The Almighty Cleanse!

I’ve written more about this scene in my full review of the Almighty Cleanse infomercial.

Well, Klee Irwin—the craggily face of the Dual Action Cleanse colon cleaning formula—wasn’t going to let that go unchallenged! In his newest infomercial, Klee Irwin and host Dr. James Chappell clearly talk trash about Danny Vierra, although they never outright name him or his product:

  • if klee was a poet…

    Though most of them aren’t much to write about—
    mere squibs and nubs, like half-smoked pale cigars,
    the tint and stink recalling Tuesday’s meal,
    the texture loose and soon dissolved—this one,
    struck off in solitude one afternoon
    (that prairie stretch before the late light fails)
    with no distinct sensation, sweet or pained,
    of special inspiration or release,
    was yet a masterpiece: a flawless coil,
    unbroken, in the bowl, as if a potter
    who worked in this most frail, least grateful clay
    had set himself to shape a topaz vase.
    O spiral perfection, not seashell nor
    stardust, how can I keep you? With this poem.

    Good thing klee didn’t get into filmmaking…
    Wait a minute!! He did!!! He made 2girls1cup

  • Being a science teacher my favorite part of the most recent duel action clense is when he show the “scientist” working on formulas on a glass blackboard… Once I saw the equations he was using (e=mc2) I thought “WOW! This stuff must really work fast, He’s including the speed of light in his equations!”

  • Klee is a genious! LOL! Watching this turd sell his anti-poo formula is like watching a train wreck. I spent an hour Googling this idiot’s name…it’s amazing what pops up. His company has been warned by the FDA a few times for adding his “special blend of natural ingredients” to his concoctions, but still he’s able to keep producing his “colon snake” pills.
    And Paul Lucas…thank you for a hilarious blog! Keep writing about the virtues of Klee Irwin! Very funny and extremely entertaining.

  • What makes them shit experts?

    Comment by Jason on February 7, 2009 at 11:16 pm

  • It’s no wonder people talk shit about people who try to help people. We kiss Israel’s arse. They force us to bomb other countries. We fight their bullshit wars. The fact is if people act right and exercised. All the pizza and fast food places would have to close. The grocery stores wouldn’t be able to sell processed foods. All chain restaurants would have to close. It would cause big pharma to close and Half the doctors would be out of business. There are a lot of people who depend on people eating shit and being fat. We could be talking about 2 trillion in profits they have to protect. I’m sure they would talk bad about anyone who was going to destroy their profits.
