Peng Joon has an entertaining new YouTube ad where he mocks the typical social media user who posts pictures of every meal, every trip, and basically, how great their life is. “Now what if social media utilized the right way is not about the food that you’re eating,” Peng says, “but what if this [holds up his iPhone] can be one of the most powerful tools that you can utilize in your business to help you get more reach, more visibility, more leads and sales?”
At the end of the YouTube ad, Peng tells you to click below to register for his Business Builder Workshop, so I did. The first 10 minutes is a highlight reel of people saying nice things about Peng Joon. I think it does more harm than good because it exposes how many flavor of the week books, courses, products, programs, and seminars the man has sold over the years. Jeez. Opportunist much?
Then, the narcissist proceeds to talk about himself for what felt like 17 years. My goodness. I had no idea gurus were still doing long-winded webinars. Who would sit through this? Whereas, we showed you our entire business model in under eight minutes in the teaser video above. It’s called respect for your time.
Peng has more stories than he does extra-medium white T-shirts. And that’s saying something. He talked for 20 minutes about how he gained like three ounces of muscle working out with one of his fitness model students. By the looks of it, he lost it all back. I think he was trying to make a point about how you need a proven system in business, but ended up going off on another tangent before he made it.
To prove Peng Joon knows his stuff, he plays a clip of someone who has used Peng’s processes to become a top earner in his MLM. Gross. Then he flashes a leaderboard for one of Russell Brunson’s affiliate contests where he placed first, barely beating out other slimy marketers such as Tai Lopez. Also, there’s a shoutout from Dan Lok. It’s hilarious. Peng believes these associations will boost his credibility. But to me, he’s just incriminating himself.
Finally Peng stops torturing me and gets to the pitch. This week’s flavor? An event called Gamechanger Intensive. In a nutshell, you get invited to some virtual workshops where you get the honor of listening to Peng Joon ramble some more. There’s a bizarre mishmash of bonuses. And it’s all yours for $3,997. But if you act now, you can get in for just one easy payment of $497. Didn’t see that coming. Not that it matters. By the time you read this, he’ll have a different digital snake oil product to sell you (for a price that will definitely end in a seven).
The fact that this little spiky-haired hype machine can continually package up nothingness, slap a new color of lipstick on it every week, and take your money time and time again? Well, that’s beyond me. Peng Joon is the worst. He’s everything that’s wrong with this industry. He has zero conscience. He’ll do whatever it takes to extract another dollar from your wallet. Cancel culture needs to work their magic on him. Then he can sell a $997 course on how to get un-cancelled.
