I work in the As Seen on TV industry, and my boss hangs out with Vince from ShamWow, so I made a talking plush toy of him. He loved it, and sent me an autographed ShamWow Smiley











Here are the videos of him talking, when you squeeze his tummy:

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

I showed this to my husband and we cracked up! Well done! This is made even more awesome by the fact that Vince got a beat down from a prostitute! And how cool of him to acknowledge the gift.

Hah! This is awesome! It also kind of makes me giggle that Vince used the wrong form of "You're" on his thank you Sham-wow XD

The typo is typical Vince!

He is one of our clients at work and his emails are littered with them.....  lol!

My boss went to his house a few weeks ago in Hollywood and said that the doll is "prominently displayed" in his home. Now that made my day! Smiley

Honestly, this doll creeps the hell out of me. That's good, though, because the real Vince does too and you captured his essence perfectly. Awesome job.
