In this new TV spot, PC Matic CEO Rob Cheng turns over pitchman duty to legendary NFL Super Bowl MVP Randy White. The former Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle retired from football over 25 years ago. Americans under 40 don’t know him. That means customers for PC anti-virus/security software must be mostly boomers and seniors. Seems about right, since younger people do most of their computing on smartphones, tablets and MacBooks, not Windows laptops and desktops. I must admit Randy does a great job, bringing a lot of enthusiasm to this pitch. First, he covers PC Matic basics— Continue reading

Billy Mays, Backwards & in Reverse

In a world where crushed M&Ms become whole and people walk backwards gracefully, Billy Mays is known by millions as Syam Yllib, He Who Balks Tackwards. This is the YouTube world of Alex Connery, who has given us a gift of hundreds of commercials and clips that are reversed to run backwards. Exactly why he’s created these turned-around videos is a mystery, but he’s obviously taken a lot of time and care to create this huge collection, so why not enjoy some?

Billy Mays Impact Gel in reverse is replete with shots of people moon-walking backwards. You’ll be struck by how much Billy’s voice sounds like a Swedish pitchman. Or should we say ″Pitch människa″? If you don’t recall what it sounded like originally, you can check it out on our Top 20 Billy Mays Commercials page. Continue reading

iRenew Bracelet – (iRe)new Product Tuesday

You may remember the iRenew Bracelet from back in 2010, when it was constantly advertised on TV. It was a hugely successful product, backed by vague claims of energy balancing.
