Neil Strauss shows up on David Navarro’s web talk show to promote “Rules of the Game”

Earlier this week a brief clip promoting Neil Strauss’s new book “Rules of the Game” circulated around the seduction blogosphere. The clip really didn’t have any redeeming value so I didn’t post it but it did intrigue me.

Was it just a staged infomercial created to promote the book or does David Navarro actually have a talk show?

I found out that he has a web talk show similar to Tom Green. Each episode is sixty minutes in length and there has been thirty episodes so far. The episode with Neil Strauss on it was from 11/8/2007 and can be watched in its entirety at

I always liked David Navarro for some reason. He seems like a cool guy once you hose off the mascara. He isn’t a bad talk show host. In fact he can interrupt the guests while they are speaking just as well as Conan O’Brien and David Letterman.

If you do not want to watch the whole thing, here are the highlights:

  • Style was wearing a purple shirt, loosened purple striped tie and vest that made him look like a bartender at a gay bar. Appletini anyone? What happened to the Japanese themed tees over a dress shirt look that he always wore two years ago? Don’t worry, he still has the weird separated ’stache and extended chin beard combination and bald head that we all know and love.
  • We finally hear about Lisa, the girl that Style apparently left “the game” for at the end of “The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists“. You know, the girl who turned “The Game” from a cool book to a lame chick novel toward the end. Still don’t remember her? She was the girl who reportedly left Strauss to hook-up with Robbie Williams, the man who also fucked each of the four heterosexual Spice Girls back in their prime.Well it sounds like she is coming out with her own relationship book or program geared toward women. Gee, I wonder if Neil might possibly be behind it. Are we going to have another David DeAngelo/Christian Carter fiasco brewing on the horizon? If Neil is in anyway behind such a book and the book reveals to women the secrets of the pick up community my earlier concerns about Neil are all but true.
  • Mystery came up and talked to Navarro and his girlfriend once. He used false time constraints which pissed Navarro off. Navarro basically told him to fuck off and leave. I guess Navarro is no Chachi!
  • They briefly discuss Mystery’s “The Pickup Artist” show. It seems like Strauss thinks the show is in some form directly inspired or spun-off from “The Game”. This is my interpretation based on the dialog between Navarro and himself. I think at times Strauss takes too much credit for things related to the community. The community was around several years and a lot of the concepts used today were created well before he infiltrated it, packaged it up in an easy to digest book form for the masses and sold it for $20 a pop a couple years ago. I know he has contributed a lot to the community but he is one of many.
  • David Faustino AKA Bud Bundy AKA Grandmaster B shows up toward the end with a can of Rock Star Zero Carb and rocking a Ed Hardy shirt. If you are unfamiliar with Ed Hardy shirts, they are expensive tattoo themed shirts worn by guys who usually do not have any real tattoos.Navarro’s creepy sidekick immediately starts either AMOGing him or molesting him. I don’t recall Ed McMahon ever doing such a thing. Bud then proceeds to say that he went to one of Strauss’s seminars. He keeps trying to stress that he went to the seminar WITH A GIRL but Navarro keeps interrupting him before he can fully get the point across. Bud tells how he used to strictly rely on his FAME and the fact that he is a STAR to get laid in the past but now he is more successful now that he uses the techniques of the seduction community.Navarro then spends the next several minutes completely ignoring Bud and talking to Strauss and his sidekick. He finally returns to Bud. We find out that Bud is there trying to get Navarro to film a brief cameo in what sounds like a B-grade movie or show of his.

    Bud describes the movie as “Entourage” meets “Curb Your Enthusiasm”. This leads Bud to ask Navarro if he ever heard of the show “Entourage” in which Navarro gives the best line of the show:

    “You’re asking me if I know about Entourage, the show with the OPENING SONG THAT I WROTE!”

    Even I know that Jane’s Addiction “Super Hero” is the opening song to Entourage and I listen primarily to rap and dance music.

    I will give Faustino credit though. He is a good speaker and looks about the same as he did ten years ago when “Married With Children” went off the air.

If you have any comments please leave them below. You can click here if to buy “Rules of the Game” which comes out December 11th. As Navarro says, it would make a good stocking stuffer!

    Good review of the video man! I think Bud must be doing something right because I saw that video with him and a super model. So maybe the techniques are working for him

    Thanks for the comment Scott,
    Yeah I saw that TMZ video too. I agree that the girl was tall and attractive. Props to him.

    I do not know if the girl is dating him based on his game or for his relative fame as is often the case in Hollywood. I do have to say I was impressed with how he handled the paparazzi in the video and how well he spoke in the David Navarro talk show.

    I guess it’s just not that big of a deal for me that Faustino is studying seduction.

  • Is Neil Strauss losing credibility in the seduction community?

    [...] the fairy tale ending to the book which is quite ironic since Lisa ended up dumping him anyway. I do not like the fact that Lisa is coming out with her own seduction program for women and I think …. I do not like how he is taking credit for many aspects of the community that existed before he [...]
