No more Giuseppe Franco on YES

Open Thread: Strasburg is teh awesome
Assessing the Yankee fielders, John Dewan style

Over the past few seasons, Yanks fans watching on YES have been bombarded by ads featuring Beverly Hills stylist Giuseppe Franco schilling for hair replacement tonic ProCede. According to Phil Mushnick of the Post, the company has “sustained some setbacks” and will no longer advertise on YES. What a shame. Now we can’t hear him talk about how he doesn’t own any part of the company (even though it’s possible that he received company stock as part of his compensation package for doing the commercial, which would technically make him a part owner of the company).

    I bet Giuseppe Franco doesn’t even own a Ford Edge in Blazing Copper. Who needs him?

      If you ever see Derek Jeter in a Ford Edge and he’s not surrounded by a camera crew, call the morgue. He must be dead.

        Or he’s just enjoying the Vista Sun Roof.

    Yeah when “Viva Viagra” and “Sudden interruptions are no problem with Cialis” takes over that spot, we won’t be so happy

  • John

    filler post?

    • Drew

      Filler?!?! This is important, they must have had ten ads during each game. I don’t know if I’ll even watch anymore.

  • BigBlueAL

    I actually saw him in an episode of 24/7, a show on HBO that they have at times previewing big boxing fights. They showed Freddie Roach, trainer for Manny Pacquiao who recently whooped up Oscar De La Hoya, going to Franco’s saloon in LA. So at least we can confirm he has one semi-famous client….

    Jorge Vazques could really hit he has great power to all sides of the field.

    Blogging like you do is such an art and you obviously have that skill here – I don’t but I did find this that made me smile so maybe I can return the favour by making you smile too?
