He was a great pitchman. Too bad he pushed some products that that also had high hidden costs such as the Awesome Auger. $19.95 but almost $60 by the time you paid separate shipping and handling for the "freebies". This, and the drill you got was corded, unless you upgraded to the battery model. He was one of the best at what he did, he just worked for some unsavory companies. Add Fred Tavelena to the list of deaths. He was one of the best impersonators ever. Worked Vegas and TV for many years.
if you have never made a mistake, you probably haven't done much.
