Slap Chop's Vince Shlomi Spawns Remix Cult on YouTube

Last Updated Jul 6, 2009 6:15 PM EDT

Vince Shlomi, the infomercial pitchman, Scientologist, and occasional prostitute enthusiast, has inspired a small army of amateur music producers to remix his Slap Chop promo into a variety of new music videos.

The craze was started by DJ Steve Porter who posted an electro-themed "Slap Chop Rap" in April. It proved so popular he created a downloadable kit of his remix to allow others to continue remixing Shlomi to their hearts' content.

So far, the challenge has seen some passable techno and dance-themed reduxes, along with a comic heavy metal version using real instruments (as opposed to samples). Porter talks about the remixes here. What follows (below) is the best of the Shlomi oevre.

It all raises a question for Shlomi's next commercial: Will he write a script that contains enough rhymes and hooks to keep his fans busy on YouTube?
