Vince the Shamwow guy shills for Eminem (video)

Vince, the pitchman for such fine, order-before-midnight-tonight products as the ShamWow and the Slap Chop, stars in a bizarre infomercial for Eminem’s new album, Recovery.

Via Adverblog, which praises Vince’s self-parody as a “[g]reat way to promote an album.”

Actually, though, Vince and Eminem’s promotional peeps are just following in the footsteps of ESPN, which used the late Billy Mays in some great spoof infomercials to promote ESPN360.com.
