Billy Mays Uses a Quick Chop to Bust a Move on Vince Offer’s Slap Chop
It looks like Billy Mays is following where Vince Offer has boldly gone before—and I don’t mean into the mouth of a hooker.
In the latest battle royal of the pitchmen, Billy is countering Vince’s Slap Chop move with a Quick Chop of his own.
Billy’s newest commercial has him pitching a product called the The Original Quick Chop™, which looks like it is exactly the same kind of product as Vince Offer’s Slap Chop. And they both even offer cheese graters as a free bonus (Quick Grater vs. Graty). But Billy tries to put the hurt on Vince with a “Buy 1, Get 1 Free” offer.
Here is Billy Mays for QuickChop:
And Vince Offer for Slap Chop:
With apologies to all you Billy Mays fans, I think Vince’s ad is the more interesting because of the notable lines (“You’re gonna love my nuts.” “Stop having a boring tuna. Stop having a boring life.”) and tossing the chopper over his shoulder.
Of course, Vince Offer may have been the first one to copy Billy Mays. In this February appearance on the Adam Corolla radio show, Billy accuses Vince of ripping off his Zorbeez product with the ShamWow:
Compare the ads for yourself:
Now if Billy Mays could get himself arrested for beating up two hookers, then he’ll really show Vince who’s boss!
