I absolutely love this video, have probably watched/listened to it over 50 times in the past 3 months. So great on so many levels.

This man's personality is CRAP!  He "creates crowds".  So what.  So did Hitler.  What he showed in the video isn't a business card.  It's a small brochure.

The purpose of a business card is not to sell.  It is to communication your contact information.  I suppose that if you're into mass marketing by handing out cars at a trade show or networking event, this might be a good way to be remembered.  But the idea that everyone holds on to this guy's card because it is stands out is a fantasy.  Maybe a few do, but most probably say, "That guy is a piece of CRAP!" and toss it away before any of the others.

My attitude might be a bit gentler if the guy didn't come across as so angry and preachy.  Billy Mays.  Now there's a pitchman who is memorable.  :)

Any chance of doing business with this cat would be snuffed the minute he opened his mouth. I don't deal with yutzes like this as a client or a contractor.
