Nose King of Miami Gives in to ASPS, Cancels Controversial Music Video Contest

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

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:

Board Certified Miami Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Michael Salzhauer M.D., FACS is an internationally recognized plastic surgeon and author. He is known as “The Nose King of Miami” and is the most desired surgeon for Rhinoplasty in South Florida. Educated at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri and was trained in the latest plastic surgery techniques while serving on the staff of Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, The University of Miami Medical Center and the prestigious Cleveland Clinic Foundation.

Groggers’ Yidvid Nose Job Doc in Trouble with ASPS

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer, decided on an original, innovative, funny and relatively cheap way to reach the potentially bottomless market of nose job enthusiasts – young Jews ages 15-30 – and have fun doing it. So he hired the Groggers, an up and coming Orthodox rock band from Queens, and traded a nose job for their young Depardieu -lookalike leader Doug Staiman in return for the hilarious Jewish video entermercial “Jewcan Sam.” Now the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) wants to lower the boom on the guy.

“Since when are doctors trading services for a music video?” asked Dr. Salzhauer’s publicist Kay Kelly in an email to the Jewish Press, and explained: “This is the new medical landscape where doctors are differentiating themselves to raise awareness of their services. It is positioned to go viral and be a hit with high school students.”

You need another proof the Groggers are HOT?

You need another proof the Groggers are HOT?

“I told him, ‘It’s funny you’re commissioning us to do this, because most of our band members have these massive, deformed noses,’” Staiman told ABC News. “And he generously offered nose jobs to the entire band. But I was the only one who went through with it.”

The Yidvid is a satirical sketch and song depicting the eternal theme of Jew wants blonde – Jews reduces shnoz – Jew gets blonde. It’s absolutely funny, and it helped promote not just the good nose doctor’s business, but also the career of the Groggers, who are just off the charts these days (watch for an exclusive interview with the Jewish Press this coming weekend!).

But it didn’t seem funny, not funny at all, to Dr. Malcolm Roth, president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, who was shocked, just shocked, telling reporters “This is just disturbing that a doctor would play into the frailties of the human condition.”

OMG, talk about giving hypocrisy a bad name…

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, of which Salzhauer is a member, said the video is “offensive and inappropriate.”

The ASPS says it “has initiated an investigation under its Code of Ethics which clearly requires ASPS members to uphold the dignity and honor of the medical profession.”

Please refer to our earlier OMG, why waste good screen space? Just think kettles and frying pans…

Dr. Roth said he could not comment specifically on the investigation (he only initiated it, after all, and paid for the tar and feathers) but, “generally speaking,” if a member of ASPS is found guilt of breaching its Code of Ethics, he or she could be placed on probation, lose their membership, and even lose their board certification.

There’s no end to what you can do if you were born without a sense of humor.

 

Check out the lyrics to The Groggers’ Jewcan Sam

I want her, but she don’t want what I am.
She says you got a beak like Jewcan Sam.
She says I only go with guys,
With perfect upturned noses, so cut yours down to size

And I’ll be everything you wanted
I’ll be everything you need
Watch the passerby’s will flash their eyes
When we walk down the street

And we would live like we were famous
With the stars all in our eyes
And I would love you till forever
If you got your nose circumcised

I want her unconditionally
But she’s got one big condition to be with me
Sometimes I sit and say if only, I looked more like Tom Cruise
And less like Adrien Brody
I’d be less lonely

She said a guy like you and a girl like me
Only happens in the movies
No matter what you do, or how hard you fight
Pinocchio never got Snow White

And I’ll be everything you wanted
I’ll be everything you need
Watch the passerby’s will flash their eyes
When we walk down the street

And we would live like we were famous
We would be forever young
And I would love you till forever
If you just got your nose done

This Sunday we hope to present the Jewish Press’ exclusive interview with Grogger band leader Doug Staiman, who’s just celebrated a Marquis-topping show at the Gramercy theater and a spot on New York’s 102.7 KissFM. Until then, watch the videos, be kind to others, and as to that nose job, for heaven’s sake, ask for a second opinion…
