Kudos to the little guy

Cheap product demo TV ads are easy targets. Often naff, shouty and tediously long, they’re something to be avoided. This is a typical example from the US, but there’s a rather interesting back story unearthed by Skepchick. It seems that Headset Vince is a recovering ex-Scientologist who is using funds raised by this product, and by an apparently awful movie he once made, to take on the cult for ruining his life.
