If you've ever watched late-night cable TV, you've probably seen an ad for the ShamWow
. The ad has received much of its notice because of the "ShamWow" guy, Vince Shlomi
. And there are a bunch of videos online parodying Shlomi because his strong personality lends itself well to mockery. Jacks Films' spoof, "The Jesus Christ Sponge," avoids the obvious joke, however, and in turn redirects our attention at the other obvious and ridiculous element of the original ShamWow ads -- the supposed "miracle" sponge that is ShamWow. And with the relatively unexplored angle and the deadpan delivery of Jack Douglas' voiceover, "The Jesus Christ Sponge" comes together as a rather hilarious video that's more than earned its over-2 million views on YouTube.
