Do you remember Fabio?
Now you do, don’t you?
How much did this guy annoy you back when he was everywhere? And he was, in fact, everywhere.
Now, sadly, we have this guy:
Another Fabio. Just what the world needs.
This one got his big start on Top Chef. After he didn’t win, they kept having him come back, because he was voted fan favorite. And back. And back some more.
Then he started doing ads for magazines. Then more ads.
And then, the other day, I found this. Go ahead, watch it. I’ll wait.
Okay, have you finished grinding your teeth yet? It’s apparently a weekly thing he’s doing for Yahoo. I’ve only managed to get through the pasta video and part of the one about tomato sauce.
I can’t help but notice that his accent has gotten a lot worse over the last couple years. He’s much harder to understand than he used to be. I can’t help wondering if that’s because he has been taking the advice of his client, that legendary thespian, William Shatner.
And, I’m sorry, but just how precise a measurement is an “Italian spoon”? Really?
The sad part is that I will probably watch these videos every week when they come out. Just to see how bad they are.
Let’s just hope that another Fabio doesn’t come along any time soon. I’m not sure I could take it.
