Responding to what had to have been a devastating letter from the attorneys of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, leading Miami Plastic Surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer at Bal Harbour Plastic Surgery Associates, announced Monday that he was canceling his music video contest, based on “Jewcan Sam, A Nose Job Love Song.” the song about nose jobs by the punk-rock band, The Groggers. Originally, Salzhauer called on contestants to create their own video for the song, and the best video would win an all-expenses paid trip to Miami.
According to Salzhauer, The ASPS requested that the song be taken off YouTube altogether, but due to the overwhelming response from The Groggers and their fans, the video will remain online. But the contest is officially cancelled until Dr. Salzhauer can work out the details of a new contest that the ASPS would agree with.
“I have been amazed at the media attention this has created. I was just having a bit of fun creating a parody video and song. I do understand the ASPS’s point of view, though my intention was not to hurt anyone’s feelings, but to have a little fun. We are currently working with the ASPS to determine acceptable details and create a new contest. We hope to have more info on this next week,” Dr. Michael Salzhauer emailed the Jewish Press. “I do want to stress that some people stated they felt this video was anti-Semitic, and that couldn’t be further than the truth – I am Jewish as are all people involved with the video. If we can’t poke fun at ourselves, then this world has become much too serious.”
Jewcan Sam (A Nose Job Love Song) puts a whole new spin on Rhinoplasty. Dr. Michael Salzhauer commissioned the Jewish punk rock band, The Groggers, to write the song and make the original music video featuring the nose job love song. The lead singer of the Groggers, LE “Doug” Staiman had a nose job by Dr. Salzhauer during the filming of the video. Viewers can see the before and after transformation the lead singer makes with his new nose.
The email from the nose king, whom the Jewish Press had dubbed “a tzadik” for his offer to help young women who could use a nose job to find a husband, added these important cv:
