Not only is the Boogie Bass popular (I've heard reports of it being a top selling item... for fathers day, perhaps?), it has inspired several knock off products. They're named Louie the Largemouth Bass, Wiggling Willie (made in China), Big Mouth Billy Bass, and Big Mouth Rainbow Trout (made by the same people as Billy Bass). I thought that there was only an original and a kock off... A little research found the bizarre truth. These products trying to make use of the mindshare of the others is almost as bad as products that advertise: "like seen on TV."

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Yeah, right.
