Snakes on a Plane

Vemma Snakes on a Plane

Vemma Snakes on a Plane

Anthony Powell didn’t meet Herbalife’s high {fake} ethical standards :: so after just a couple of decades of letting him do whatever the fuck … they pretended to promptly and politely part ways with his punkass. Fly away chubby bird :: run your gigantic lead gen scam in other murky waters … says them.

You’d think he might show a little respect :: a little gratitude to the NYSE traded scamworld company that gave him his start in scamworld :: yet here he is getting all puffy on a private plane … dissing the sacred Herbalife button.

The button that made over a billion unicorn dreams come true.

Fat Tony says distributors are “really embarrassed” to wear the button :: and then he rudely implies that buttons aren’t as good at starting biz op conversations as are “so sexy” aluminum cans … Mark Hughes must be rolling over in his grave {to snort some coke off a hooker}.

“No more hotel meetings. No more recruiting friends and family. No more constant cold calling. The Internet miracle has transformed Herbalife into the ideal work from home opportunity … the leads will come to you!”

That’s been HLF’s basic pitch for the last decade and a half. But now :: with the wolves at the door … they’ve decided to go back to the 80’s … where they’re going to be needing that goddamn button thank you very much.

Use, Wear, Talk

HLF’s operational mantra from the past … is now their “let’s pretend there’s no Internet” operational mantra of the future.

Use … the products {somebody’s gotta}.

Wear … the really embarrassing button {it’ll make you fucking rich}.

Talk … to people at Walmart {about how the button is making you fucking rich}.

Use :: wear … talk.


If you’re looking for an income opportunity that will have you out on the street recruiting fresh meat like a Moonie … then Herbalife 2013 is the MLM for you. Why not pay them to sign their highly restrictive distributor agreement today?

But Anthony Powell is too fat {and lazy like a fat fox} to be a Moonie :: so he needs to keep doing shit exactly like he’d been doing shit inside pre-Bill-Ackman-Herbalife {pBA HLF} … aka … lead generation pyramid built atop of an old-school product based pyramid.

If you don’t know how it works :: you can read my fake robot hates Shawn Dahl article … or you can just read these bullet points.

  • expensive mass media advertising that focuses exclusively on the income opportunity
  • an offer to purchase a low-priced “decision pack” that sorts out the “desperate enough to buy something” leads
  • sell the buyer leads at dramatically inflated prices to people already sucked into the scheme
  • pump a large chuck of the money back into generating more buyer leads via expensive advertising

Victims will routinely lose more money buying leads and methods than they will on keeping themselves paid up and qualified within the underlying MLM’s compensation plan.

Watch it happen again :: exactly like it was happening before …

Glenn Beck At Home

Glenn Beck gets big money to push his followers to a PaidAtHome Kit landing page …

Paid At Home Kit

The Kit pushes people into Anthony Powell’s Global Pro System {or someone else’s similar system if the lead costs are being pooled among high level distributors}.

Anthony Powell’s GPS pushes people into Vemma :: and then grinds them down to dust … as a bonus {to himself}.

Anthony Powell GPS

Is Vemma a scam :: or just a fun simple magical way to sling healthy juice?

Well …

— I could hire some fancy fucking research firm to spend three months {and $500,000} comparing Vemma’s intentionally complex compensation system to some antique :: and equally complex … MLM case law.

— I could refer you to some great work on Vemma done by New Chicks on the {say no to liars} Block … Truth in Advertising.

— Or :: to be cruel … I could force you to watch BK Boreyko’s pathetic response to the same said critical analysis of Vemma

But I think it’s prolly easier to answer the :: “Is Vemma a scam?” question … with another {simpler to answer} question.

Is BK Boreyko on a plane :: doing a lame Vemma promo … with notorious grandma fucking bastard Anthony Powell?

  1. Good ol’ Crazy Fox. Good times, good times…

    “Look at that thing. His bone structure just seems all wrong and his fur is a matted mix of every brown and red crayon that every kid was too scared to use. Maybe he’s supposed to be undead? His forced expression gives off a distinct vibe that says, “please kill me, and this time incinerate my body so I don’t wake up to this nightmare again”.

  2. I remember seeing that crazy like a fox commercial a lot. Maybe I just don’t watch the channels where it’s on anymore since I now mostly watch crap from the DVR.

  3. Over the weekend I saw “Runner Runner,” Hollywood’s latest “Boiler Room”-meets-Jeremy-Johnson action-adventure movie.

    It was all fun and games until Ben Affleck delivered some full-on-psychopath lines. My boyfriend and I silently shot each other “The guy looks like a date rapist! Is that my jacket?” looks, and the rest of the sheeple laughed.

  4. Didnt you watch the video Salty?


    Stop ragging on MLM companies because they are different.

    Just because you don’t understand them doesnt make them a SCAM.

    Stop hating on people trying to get ahead in life Salty, seriously chill the fuck out.

    1. @hrmmm,

      “What big shiny teeth you have” said Red Riding Hood.

      “All the better to eat you with” said ‘Grandma’

    1. @Peter Crowell ::

      Sadly :: I think you’re wrong about that … there’s lots of money in telling lies about how there’s lots of money in juice.

    1. @Ray ::

      I agree with you :: he knows exactly what he’s doing.

      But :: what is he doing?

      … that’s a question for you to ponder.


    1. @Jack ::

      But which modes of communication aren’t contaminated by this plague?

      I think they’ve got to put themselves out there like that … that’s how the lame PR game is played. What matters is what they say once they’re out there.

      Vemma college credit bonuses instead of BMWs?

      “This is just another marketing ploy to entice college-age kids into sinking money into a losing proposition,” said Fran Silverman of, “What students really need to know is that 92 percent of active distributors did not qualify for that level of bonus in 2012.”

      Lamesville FTC settlements?

      Meanwhile, Truth in Advertising, a new consumer advocacy group based in Connecticut, questioned whether the FTC settlement would serve as a deterrent. Bonnie Patten, the group’s executive director, noted that Skechers was the leader in the so-called shape-up shoe market, which racked up more than $1 billion in sales in 2010.

      “What does $40 million mean to them?” Patten told The Times, saying that the FTC had failed to provide “one shred of data to support the idea that this is a just or reasonable number. My guess is that [Skechers’ celebrity-driven] marketing campaign cost more than that every year. Is this just the cost of doing business for them?”

      I like it! Every lame :: fucking complicit :: media organization out there ought to put them on immediately!

  5. Mr. BK Boreyko was saying in that video that people buy Girl Scout Cookies even though they do not want them. Well, I have always bought them because I wanted them. Especially those thin mints. I once ate 3 boxes of those in one hour! Also what I like about the Girl Scouts is they don’t make me pay for any brochures and I don’t have to sell them to anyone else. So if I had to choose between signing up for that Vemma or signing up for the Girl Scouts, I would sign up for the Girl Scouts. But since I am not a girl, it is probably a moot point.

  6. Is it safe to assume he got slotted in and didn’t start at the bottom? Does anyone know whose spot he bought? (or was given to him)

    1. @Marv ::

      Gr8 question! I’m curious about what experiences you’ve had to make you wanna ask it?

      But no :: he took a huge chunk of his Herbalife downline with him … so he didn’t need to be slotted in anywhere. Just a little gift from Herbalife to Vemma :: because as Bob Proctor has told us

      “The old economy of competition is out and the new economy of cooperation is emerging.”
