    i was listening to all the shit C-level commercials Howard does, and two things crossed my mind, the reason he doesn't have the big "gets" like a McDonalds or a Budweiser is because they probably won't work with the game plan of him getting a percentage of the ad revenue up front....so he is stuck with shit....I thought I would see what some of them cost..

    Squatty Potty, you can get the one that is basically a $2.99 step stool from the dollar store for $29.99 or it then jumps right up to custom shitting..

    Then there is Tommy John...WTF? Who spends this much on underwear? Howard says he has ove 60 pairs....look at the price on the classic basic! Tee shirt, $40!

    Shitty Bar Tee shirt of the month club, supposed to make you look cool by never having step foot into any of these places, but you have a tee...$22.00 a month

    Then we have Boll and Branch, 3 Presidents sleep on these! How do they qualify that? Anyway, the sheets start at $200 and work their way up over $400, is this what you pay for sheets?

    No, I truly wouldn't.

    I could afford it but, I wouldn't waste my money.

    If the sheets are high end that's not a bad price. Anyone know about their quality?

    I wouldn't buy anything advertised on Stern's shit show on principal alone, whether I could afford it or not. Fuck that money-grubbing-lying-wig-wearing asshole.

    This is the one that kills me the most. Not necessarily because they sell sheets that start at $200, but because of the ridiculous line in their ad where they ask, "Why should you keep paying $1000 or more for your sheets when there's Boll and Branch?!!!!" :facepalm:

    Go fuck yourselves, assholes. There's about 1/1000th of one percent of the people in this country who are dropping four figures on a single set of bedsheets and not one of them listens to THSS.

    No effing way,the wigged one gets them for free meanwhile he pretends to be paying for them even though he's a Baziliionaire,that squatty potty is an absolute con and as for the Tommy John underwear you can buy a similar product if you actually used your internet to find a cheaper alternative.

    I think Tommy John and Squatty Potty each signed up for organic stealth advertising with the Stern Show. That's where Howard first praises their product out of the blue, swearing he's not getting paid to promote it. He then quietly transitions to live commercial reads for them.

    Before rushing out to buy Howard's all-time favorite underwear, lets pour out some Snapple for the memory of his former all-time favorite boot: Lugz.

    His undying love for them died as soon as they stopped advertising with his show. :bigcry:

    It's all garbage.
    The underwear is made of modal which is a man made material - you should never wear underwear made of anything but breathable cotton. Talk about stinky sweaty balls !

    It's the oldest morning zoo radio trick in the book... you talk about anything and then the sales people go shill and try and sign the client.

    "Did you hear Wacky Wayne talking about your sports bar this morning? Oh man you're gonna be swamped for lunch today!"

    Then they "welcome" a new sponsor. In most markets the poor DJ gets $50 for recording a spot.

    Why Howie still does this is beyond me. So low rent.

    I think that Shittens are one of the worst products he's ever advertised.
    How long do you think it would take to plug up your drain line once you start flushing these things down ?
    Stupid idea.

    Maybe some Tommy John boxer briefs, only because I heard they actually work and are nice. It is hard to find good boxer briefs that don't ride but keep the nuggetry from sucking to the thighs. Squatty potty cam go fuck it's self.

    This excellent 1997 unauthorized bio of Howard talks with some of his former advertisers, who loved Howard because of his enthusiasm. As much as he complains about having to do commercials, his avertisers, who met with him after his show, saw Howard as a guy who was excited and informed about their products, and full of ideas about how he could help sell them on his show. He was far more enthusiastic about selling than other DJs they worked with, and he actually got results. (He of course got a personal cut for doing these commercials.)
