From a singer in a little caf, to a ten-thousand-dollar a week radio headliner. That's how fast Rudy climbed! Because this youngster just naturally delivered something the public wants.

Though Vallée himself doesn’t provide any quote endorsing the product, his signature megaphone is pointed toward the copy text as if he is saying the words himself.
