King Of Infomercials Critiques Obama’s TV Pitch

FAIRFIELD, N.J. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – This past Wednesday (Oct. 29), Barack Obama attempted to sell himself to voting Americans through a paid infomercial, but the King of Infomercials wasn’t buying it.

AJ Khubani, who is CEO of Telebrands, a company that produces television infomercials and products, says Obama’s big TV pitch didn’t measure up to his high TV sale standards.

He says, “Overall, I’d say his infomercial was crap. In infomercials, we provide a product to solve everyday problems. 90 percent of his infomercial was about the problems, but he didn’t give a solution.”

Though Khubani doesn’t think Obama could’ve used a bright, tacky sweater and catchphrase like “Act Now” and “But wait! There’s more!” he does think he could’ve benefitted from “A-list endorsements” from Colin Powell and Warren Buffet.

Despite thinking the infomercial had “a lot of sizzle but no steak,” Khubani applauds the Democrat’s put-together presidential look and says he delivered a good “beauty shot.”
