Eminem Teams With 'Shamwow!' Guy For New Ad (Video)
Eminem dropped a viral video featuring the “Shamwow!” guy promoting the rapper’s upcoming album, Recovery.
The :30 second viral clip features Vince Shlomi promoting the album in the vein of the popular late night “Shamwow!” towel commercials.
“You’re going to be clappin when you hear Eminem rappin,” Shlomi said while hawking Eminem’s new album infomercial style.
Shlomi demonstrates the many uses of Eminem’s Recovery CD, by cutting it in half. The two halves of the CD is then used to chop onions, cheese, tacos, steak bone and even silicone.
The commercial also offers female fans the “sold out” “Shampon,” a phony tampon that “can hold up to ten-times its weight in liquid.”
Shlomi has a checkered past, like Eminem. In February of 2009, Shlomi was arrested in Miami Beach for felony battery.
He allegedly struck a 26-year-old prostitute when she bit his tongue and refused to let go. Prosecutors later declined to file charges against either party.
Eminem's Recovery release date has been moved up one day to June 21st, after the entire album leaked on the Internet almost two weeks before the original release date of June 22nd.
