Monday Media Blogging – Come To My Seminar!

5 comments February 2nd, 2009at 07:36am Posted by Eli

As great as the Paul From The Diamond Center ads were, Tom “Come to my seminar!” Vu was in a class by himself.

Most of his commercials featured bikini babes (backgammon bikini babes!) and Lopsided Afro Man.

This one is a bit atypical, but it features his classic “You are loser!  Get out of my way!” rant.

Longer version.  Bikini babes yes, Lopsided Afro Man no.

    My favorite selling gimmick was a swarm of fake photographers that were hired to descend on some prospective buyers at parties to advertise FL glam property – as if they were paparazzi stalking them.

    Tom Vu: Best! Total flashback to our junior year of college, Eli; thanks for the trip down memory lane. A quick check of wikipedia reveals that Vu is now retired from real estate and is a (quite successful) professional poker player. I wonder if he also has a “system” for that, too, and if it would take more than three words.

    The secret is to tell your opponent that they are loser and to get out of your way, and also to use bikini models as a distraction.

    I know that works for backgammon. Perhaps it applies to poker as well.

    I’m not sure if the nonexistence of Strip Backgammon makes this more or less likely.
