"Celebrity" Death Match Time
Sunday, October 12, 2008
A few short months ago, the YES Network introduced us all to one of the most maddeningly obnoxious commercials known to mankind, and to add insult to the mental injury sustained just by watching it, they played it over. And over. And over. AND OVER.

I am, of course, talking about Giuseppe Franco and his hair-boosting wonder tonic, Procede (which he DOES NOT OWN, let me assure you). The worst part of the commercial is the Francster's own hair! He has SO MUCH OF IT. I guess it indicates that the product may indeed live up to its claims, but there is such a concept as too much of a good thing. GF's hair is so voluminous it has left him with about half a centimeter of forehead real estate. One more Procede application and his hairline will merge with his brows.

Let's take a gander:




See what I'm saying here, folks? Do you see?! Could any commercial be more annoying?!

I'm sad to say that the answer to that question is a resounding YES.

Thanks to TBS, we have a new winner. We saw these commercials during the division series last year, but since I rarely watch TBS otherwise I had pretty much forgotten about the horror that is FRANK CALIENDO and his horrible, mediocre impressions. Who told him he was good at this? Putting on a wig does not transform you into Jack Nicolson. At all. And how about losing a few lbs? It might help. It's hard to convince me that you're Al Pacino.

Check him out:



I just realized that the commercials don't even tell us what the format of the show is. I guess it's just him standing in front of a wall doing "impressions" for a half hour? And we're supposed to watch it? I wouldn't even watch Darrell Hammond do impressions for 30 minutes, and he's good.


I suppose that's enough non-baseball biz for today. GO RAYS!

    What I love about those Giuseppe Franco commercials is that he goes "I don't know anything about it" at which point I realize that the commercial was supposed to be taped for SNL.

    Why is Gary Busey in this commercial???

    Caliendo is very funny and talented. I saw him live a couple of years ago. He stuck around for photos and handshakes afterward too. Nice guy.

    The TBS spots are ridiculous, and not doing him any favors, that's for sure. Nothing he can do about how TBS markets his show. Must be frustrating.

    Don't forget about that ridiculous "I'm into nuggets y'all" Mcdonalds commercial they beat the hell out of. Mcnuggets, Mcnuggets, what?

    Btw, I saw during the season Giusseppe's commercial made it over to the SNY network.
