InVinceable: Vince Offer Returns and Goes Through the Motions

The last we heard of Vince Offer, his movie had flopped spectacularly at the box office and the DVDs were being sold on TV for $19.95. But Vince isn’t going to go away that easily. He’s back in an infomercial for a cleaning tablet product named after himself, InVinceable:

Loading the player…

Many of the tried-and-true elements of Vince’s previous forays into television commercials are here:

  • The self-deprecation. (“Relax, I’ve done dirtier things than this”— a reference to the dirty streetwalker he tried to “do” in Miami).
  • The double-entendres. (“You can use InVinceable to clean almost anything. Period.” This menstruation quip, along with his earlier line about a “shedding pussy,” are why Vince Offer is universally known as the Salesman to the Fairer Sex.)
  • And of course the signature (and pointless) catchphrase, “We can’t do this all day.”

Yet it all comes across as a pale copy of what he’s done before. Vince’s first two infomercials, the ShamWow and the Slap Chop, had a kind of offbeat energy combined with naughty (for an infomercial!) humor. And the Schticky managed to skillfully send up Vince Offer’s pop-culture persona. Perhaps he is dispirited at having to work as a pitchman again instead of enjoying a career as a major Hollywood filmmaker, but Vince Offer seems to be just going through the motions with InVinceable.

  • He seems like he’s being impaired by some sort of a medical condition.

  • Too bad his nano-second “cameo” (in truth a clip from one of his infomercials) in Iron Man 3 didn’t pan out for him.

  • Yea, I agree with @euGENE… what the heck is up with his right eye? At first I thought it was ptosis like what Forest Whitaker has, but it looks more like he’s recovering from a black eye or something…

  • It actually looks like a might have had a stroke. His mouth doesn’t move as much on the right side. Look at around 1:16. Weird

  • One of the more strange and typical parts which is the now known useless headset he’s always wearing seeing that he removed it and we could hear him just as well.

  • Wow he’s really aged. He’s lost his weird manic Beavis look and is more like the usual sad middle-aged men who inhabit those kiosks at malls and flea markets

  • For those not already aware, Vince “Offer” Shlomi did in fact have a stroke prior to his ascent to infamy in the original ShamWow advert. That’s why he always wears the headset no matter what he’s pitching.

    That aside, it looks like he’s put on some weight as of late. Brace yourselves for a TrimSpa endorsement in the near future, folks…

  • I actually like the spray bottle that works upsidedown… where can you get those?

  • If you are thinking of ordering this product. be very certain you want to keep it because the risk free cash back warrenty is a scam.
    I paid $75.00 for three of these packages and I returned the product a couple of days after receiving them and I was refunded $31.50. Customer service told me that the difference was for shipping and handeling.
    Buyer beware!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I ordered buy 1 get one free” and was charged $23.90 twice. Total of $47.80. What a rip off. You get 2 little packets of the “stuff”, about the size of 1/2 of a pencil and 2 Sprayers in each box. The “Free” one cost me an additional $23.90. Naturally I can’t get hold of anyone ’cause it is Sunday. I WILL be on the phone to them tomorrow to get instructions for returning the whole mess and will contact my Credit Card company to claim fraud tomorrow too. Buyer beware!

  • Always watch out for “plus shipping”, or “refund minus shipping”. Sometimes the shipping is as much as the item itself.

    Notice when they say “get one free”, they often say separate shipping/processing for the “free” item.

    Even if they send you a refund, they make a profit of $20 or more for stuffing it in an envelope. A $20 product is probably worth $1.00 to begin with.
