Get Off Your Butt And Do It!

“Are you man enough to get off your lazy American ass and go to Vu’s seminars?”
“A lot of your friends will tell you, ‘Don’t come to the seminar. It’s a get-rich-quick plan.’ Well, tell them, it is a get-rich-quick plan because life is too short to get rich slow.”
“Tom Vu says his system is different than other experts’.”
“Okay. You’ve seen me make a lot of money. You’ve seen my students who are average people make a lot of money. Isn’t is about time for you to go out and make a lot of money?”
“There’s two kinds of work in America: hard work and smart work. Which one are you doing now?”
“This is not a country club! This is my house!”
“Today I’m gonna show you how to drive a sports car. First, you need a lot of money!”
“Don’t listen to your friends. They’re losers!”
“Do you think these girls like me? NO, they like my money!”
His late night infomercials featured Vu surrounded by luxury items: mansions, yachts, expensive cars and most visibly, collections of young bikini clad women. He promoted his free 90-minute seminar to learn the same secrets he used to make millions. As a Vietnamese immigrant, he presented himself as the classical ‘rags to riches’ story.Vu’s investment theory involved finding “distressed” properties: foreclosures, bankruptcies, divorces, tax liens, and selling them at a profit.
Vu’s somewhat loose grasp of the English language and his use of beautiful models as backdrops made him one of the more humorous personalities of the infomercial genre.
Formerly of Longwood, Florida and later, California resident, Vu has retired from real estate and lives in Las Vegas, Nevada. (wikipedia)
