Heroes Actor and Yowza!! Co-Founder Greg Grunberg Bares All in Viral Video Parody of Dollar Shave Club's Viral Video Hysterically Hypes the Yowza!! Mobile Coupon App
LOS ANGELES, March 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Yowza!!, the leading location-based mobile coupon app, has released a response to DollarShaveClub.com's immensely popular video. The parody stars Heroes actor and Yowza!! co-founder, Greg Grunberg, with a special cameo from Bob Guiney, star of The Bachelor. An immediate hit, the video garnered over 5,000 views in the first 24 hours and word is spreading rapidly across the Twitterverse.
"We wanted to showcase our revolutionary app in a fun, creative and different way," says David Teichner, CEO of Yowza!! "It seemed only natural for Greg Grunberg, our co-founder, to bare it all in the name of mobile marketing. We wanted to create something that would make consumers and businesses alike say Yowza!! and I believe we accomplished that."
In the one minute, forty-eight second spot, the semi-nude Grunberg matter-of-factly explains the benefits of using Yowza!! over traditional paper coupons and deal-of-the-day websites. Throughout the process, Grunberg also manages to chop off an employee's arm, get his nether regions waxed, and hand a rose to The Bachelor star, Guiney.
"With Yowza!! you push one button and you get the deals," says Grunberg as he crashes through a doorway in the soon-to-be viral video phenomena. "And do you really want a million emails trying to sell you daily deals for things you don't need?"
Revolutionizing the mobile marketing trend, Yowza!!'s location-based mobile coupons give retailers a unique and relevant way to bring nearby shoppers through their doors.
The Yowza!! app, a free download for consumers, lists offers within a 1 – 50 mile radius. Shoppers can now find coupons for their favorite stores, wherever they are, on demand.
