    Or you could buy the ingredients and hit a button for a buck. Just saying.

    Twenty minutes to tell us a story about drinking a fucking smoothie.

    A smoothie that any idiot can make at home in about five minutes.

    Product placement, no way Howard walks into a GNC and orders something from a random clerk.

    He didn't say that. He said he had to wait because of a plumbing problem...which further illustrated the demand. That was before he mentioned reading on a website that the smoothies are so great that crowds get rowdy while they impatiently wait in line.

    Do you really believe that Howard walked to GNC on a few occasions just to try a smoothie? I don't buy that story for a single second.

    No, he actually said that on the website review there were several comments that were negative about the staff & that the "rowdy crowds" were due to staff letting friends cut the line

    Here is what he referred to - http://www.yelp.com/biz/general-nutrition-center-new-york-7

    You don't "product placement" by bringing up negatives, no matter how badly you try to think EVERYTHING is a scam

    Howard doesn't hit a button unless it's to dump something interesting said by a guest.

    Well I must have misheard it because I didn't hear him say that staff was behind the line cutting. And if that's what he said, he wasn't relaying his own experience...just reading something that already exists online. Something that wouldn't drive away people who wanted to try this "amazing" smoothie. In fact, it just demonstrates what lengths Howard was willing to go on his smoothie quest.

    What would Howard's motive be for spending twenty minutes talking about the lengths he went to get a smoothie that's so "amazing" that he wishes he could have them for every meal?

    Do you really believe that product placement has invaded every part of the media except radio?

    WTF are you talking about? When do I try to think "EVERYTHING" is a scam? Now you're just pulling shit out of your ass.

    No, I said bringing up complaints about poor customer service does not equal product placement
