Well, guys, this is official…the most annoying guy in the world is Israeli. This has already been discussed in countless forums (http://broadwayworld.com/board/printthread.cfm?thread=1002240&boardid=2) and blogs (http://www.infomercial-hell.com/blog/2008/06/28/why-is-the-shamwow-commercial-so-damn-annoying/), but recently a local radio show in my area did an official survey, and declared him the winner. Yes, we are talking about Offer “Vince” Shlomi, who grew up in my home town of Haifa.
The ShamWOW commercial landed Vince into infamy, and I hope the tons of cash he made off it were worth it. Offer has done other things too, like some comedy movie that wasn’t too successful (trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70lwALlvTx8). Thank you, Offer, for getting the people of Israel such a world record.
