THE THIRD DIMENSION OF CELEBRITY PRODUCT ENDORSEMENTS!

This is crushingly depressing. It is more depressing than Orson Wells shilling Paul Masson sparkling Wine, because it at least seemed as if he was having fun. It is more depressing than Boris Karloff in Plan 9 from Outer Space. More depressing than Wilford Brimley hawking whatever it is that old-people related product was, and WAY more depressing than Jamie Lee Curtis talking about digestive "issues." It's up there with Mohammed Ali selling insecticide.

I'll try to remember you for your films, Vincent, not for hawking some strange, probably malfunctioning camera.

Heather said...

This just reinforces my personal belief that Vincent Price was some kind of awesome.

Nappy Birthday, Vincent. Nappy Birthday.

SLWest said...

@Grrg: It is sadder even than confusing Boris Karloff for Bela Lugosi.

Nate said...

It works so well, no one uses that technology anymore...

Having 4 lenses is kind of akin to having 5 blades on your razor, dont you think?

Well, at least Vincent is just making a spare dime here. He's not like Mr. T selling his own brand of crazy like the "Mr. T Flavorware Oven".

I was just disappointed there wasn't a better reaction shot from the family after he barged into their house. "Hello, Cindy." "AHHH! Old man at my birthday party? Mommy, you promised me Mickey Mouse!"

Heather said...

@Nate: You have to wonder if they ever recouped that 50 million dollar investment. Methinks not.

@Grrg: Wilford Brimley just wants to keep you informed about diabeetus. Vincent Price, however, just wants to see how long he can go without blinking.

This is much better than the Muppet Show.

Never again will creative censoring block my view of genitalia! Take that PG-13! It's aisle seats from now on...

Vincent Price is kind of a huge pedophile in this one..

This is my favorite review of Avatar so far. "It wasn't fun, and you looked so silly!"

Vincent Price, aka Ratigan, the World's Greatest Rat.
Also to the anon above...<3

I'd have loved for Vincent Price to show up to my 6th birthday.

Ravenhallow said...

Oh crap I have to go watch the Great Mouse Detective now. Thank you theawkwardchild.

I really found myself not caring about silly camera shilling here. I just wanted more Vincent Price. His little spooky pose in the picture at the end! Eee!

The funniest part? They are selling the same crap again overprized right now. 3D is making a huge comeback and they still need the shit glasses or other shit glasses Vincent is talking about in this video.

Ya, rly.

Destination A Go-Go said...

Well said Grrg.

Jeremy said...

I have that camera. I wish I knew what to do with it.

Mene Tekel said...

I was gushing the whole time over the camera. I love weird cameras and it wouldn't surprise me if Lomography had one of these. No examples of 3d pictures EIT?

mcsandwich said...

Vincent Price and Cypress Gardens: both are dead but only one is going to be turned into Legoland (sorry Vince).

Ebelch said...

Watching this video is tantamount to drinking David Lynch flavored NyQuil.

nrage40 said...

Nice catch SLWest, I noticed that too. I thought this was hilarious by the way

Nicol3 said...

I live in a haunted castle on a hill, and Vincent effing Prince never came to any of my GODDAMN birthday parties.

I love Vincent. I still have a black velvet painting of him over my bed. Even in this clip I found him funny, warm, gentle, loving....just like he was in Edward Scissorhands...RIP dear Vincent. I miss you.

filmscience said...

Methinks Mr. Price was laughing all the way to the bank on this one, hamming it up. I'm sure the paycheck wasn't huge but it's hardly as desperate looking as the Welles ads.

And I know he was just reading from cue cards - but rather than being "three times as thrilling" (thrilling x 3) he's talking about adding depth - which constitutes the addition of volume to what is normally a plane. So really he should have said, "The increase of thrilling equals thrilling^3 minus thrilling^2!"

poor old Vincent. he made awesome movies, he deserved better.

Dang Nguyen. "You are world wide web site sucks?"

Vincent is still getting over the pain of losing his wife and kids to the vampire airborne strain. People handle grief in different ways. Verification: Sterol like my testicles.

sanneh said...

The bland 1950's style humor coupled with poor acting and slow delivery of dialogue reminded me of Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Poor Al.

Also, I want that camera. Photography using outdated, superfluous technology is all the rage these days.
