->''"Hi, it's Vince with [=ShamWow=]!"'' \\
''"Hi, it's Vince with Slap Chop!"'' \\
''"Hey, it's Vince with Music/{{Eminem}}'s new album called ''Recovery''!"'' \\
''"Hey, it's Vince Offer here with my new product called the Schticky!"''

Born Offer Shlomi, Vince Offer made quite an impression hawking the Shamwow towel and immortalizing the line, "You followin' me, camera guy?" If he had only one commercial under his belt he could easily be dismissed as a one-hit wonder. But Vince soon returned in a new commercial for Slap Chop, where he cheerfully informs us that we will ''love'' his nuts. The internet indeed ''loves'' him and occasionally [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWRyj5cHIQA gets creative about it]]. Then, in 2012, he made his triumphant return with the Schticky.

By coincidence, bears an uncanny resemblance to ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'''s [[Characters/TeamFortress2 Scout]]. [[AscendedMeme Which was quickly acknowledged in the game]].

----
!!Offer provides examples of the following:

* {{Archenemy}}: BillyMays. Not only were they rivals as popular pitchmen, but Mays also accused Offer of plagiarizing demos and promoting inferior products.
* AscendedMeme: The Rap Chop and Jamwow music videos are now used as television commercials, with copyrighted material replaced with footage of dancers in bizarre costumes.
* BreadEggsMilkSquick: "You'll use it in the house. You'll use it in the car. You can also use it at the beach. And at your dad's funeral. Now, you'll have an exciting life!"
* BreathlessNonSequitur: Tons of it, especially in the Slap-Chop ad.
* CaptainObvious: Thanks Vince, we wouldn't have noticed that onion skin without that zoom in. And the arrow. And he still has the nerve to ask, "You see that?"
* DoubleEntendre: "[[MemeticMutation You're gonna love my nuts.]]" Given that he does the same joke with the eggs in the Spanish version (''huevos'' being both the word for "eggs" and a slang for the testes), it's very unlikely that the "nuts" line was accidental.
** With the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAQjF5RPgbg&feature=channel&list=UL Schticky]], it's "Problem with that shedding pussy?".
*** It's not just that, it's basically the whole commercial. "Hey Vince! Oh, you're playing with your Schticky, I'm sorry." "You're gonna like the little Schticky, but you're gonna LOVE the big Schticky!" "It's slippery when wet...sticky when dry." And so on.
*** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXG19tbTb7g&feature=channel&list=UL "gag reel"]] has even more. "Clean those dusty balls!" "I just love to save some hard wood!".
* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: It's easy to find people who have never heard of Vince Offer because they only know him as the "Shamwow Guy."
* FauxFluency: Instead of dubbing his ads into Spanish, he re-recorded them with him doing the pitch in Spanish. The sentences are rather simplified, but the essence is still there.
* GermanicEfficiency: "Made in Germany. You know the Germans always make good stuff."
* IconicItem: The headset, if not the merchandise.
* IfYouCallBeforeMidnightTonight: "Because you know we can't do this all day."
* LargeHam: His saving grace. The products he hawks are crap, but it's just so much ''fun'' to watch him.
* MeaningfulName: Vince ''Offer''. He's a salesman.
* MotorMouth: The Camera Guy can't even follow him.
* OnionTears: {{Defied|Trope}} in the Slap Chop commercial.
* RapidFireComedy: [[MotorMouth Due to the speed at which he's doing his sales pitches]], it's easy to miss a few of the jokes the first time around.
* RussianReversal: The [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wowfixed.jpg previous page image]].
* SelfDeprecation: His latest ad on Music/{{Enimem}}'s ''Recovery'' CD mocks his own sales pitch.
** The Schticky ad states that it can come through even when you aren't at your best, and simulates a mug shot being taken [[note]]he was arrested in 2009 for beating up a hooker[[/note]].
* StupidStatementDanceMix:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWRyj5cHIQA Rap Chop]]. Now an AscendedMeme, as the company ''actually uses this as its official ad now''.
** And its sequel, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CztvSpKdCeY&feature=related "Jam Wow"]].
* ThisLoserIsYou: Most of the Slapchop advert. "''You see this tuna? This tuna is ''boring''. Stop having a boring tuna, stop having a boring '''life'''.''"
