All inventors want a “foot in the door” when pitching their new product to TeleBrands CEO AJ Khubani. Yet, on Tuesday evening, March 23, NJ Devil (the Devils’ team mascot) will be the first to get a public pedicure from the “Infomercial King”! Using the famous PedEgg, Khubani will treat NJ Devil to the special foot treatment as part of TeleBrands’ “As Seen on TV” night at Prudential Center.
The event, which will take place before the Devils take on the Columbus Blue Jackets in an NHL match-up, represents the first time TeleBrands has partnered with a major league sports franchise. Devils Arena Entertainment is teaming with TeleBrands and Khubani looks forward to highlighting those crazy infomercials that we all know and love by meeting ‘n greeting fans, holding product demos, and getting pitched new potential products.
Currently, Devils fans have the opportunity to vote for their favorite TeleBrands “As Seen on TV” product on newjerseydevils.com. The product selected as most popular by fans – to be chosen from the PedEgg, Jupiter Jack, Windshield Wonder, Perfect Fit Button or Bottle Top – will be given away at the March 23rd game.
“The New Jersey Devils exemplify dedication, success and teamwork in the state – and TeleBrands has been a part of New Jersey life for over 27 years,” said Khubani. “We are thrilled to sponsor the first TeleBrands 'As Seen on TV' giveaway at a major league hockey event." “A Devils partnership with such a well known New Jersey company as TeleBrands is a perfect combination,” notes Jeff Vanderbeek, Chairman and Managing Partner of the New Jersey Devils. “We are looking forward to this event at The Rock on March 23rd and know that our Devils Legion will have a great time.” When it comes to selecting successful products, Khubani has been dubbed the “King of the Infomercial.” From hosting TeleBrands’ Inventor’s Days throughout the country, to meeting at-home inventors wherever possible, he’ll be available before and during the game to welcome fans’ new-product pitches.
