Hello Folks!

Just saw a great video on the today show featuring Joe Ades, a 74 year old potato peeler pitchman, who lives on Park Avenue in New York City. I am sure you will enjoy this. Just click onto todayshow.com, then click on Video from Today, there will be a small photo of Mr. Ades , just click on that and the video will play. ENJOY

There's more than a few videos of him up on youtube as well. It's fun to see the progression he went through, from back when he was not known to now, dressed in a suit, with newspaper articles and vanity fair included in his pitch.

And I've heard from some pitchman that you can't make any money today pitching for $5.00.

I especially like the part where the narrator points out that he pitches the peeler to people "on their way to the Farmer's Market", think about it.. setting up your potato peeler joint right by the Farmers market..pure genius...There are ALOT of vegetables in there ha ha
