Nissan: Where the Salesmen are just decorative
Here's another ad people who actually make a living selling cars must loathe, because it's so damn common. This woman doesn't need to be sold a car, she just needs to be followed around until she picks the one she's the most insane about and shown where to sign. The cars might as well be in vending machines. I wonder if Toyota shows this commercial to salesmen whenever they ask for a raise- "seriously? You don't do anything NOW! People are so desperately manic to buy our cars, you are practically in the way when they come in- a chimp with a pen could do your job!"
"Yeah yeah yeah love the cars, love the deal, here's my wallet give me my keys!" And the salesman looks flustered and stunned by the whole thing- well yeah, I guess I would be stunned too if I walked into my new class late one August and had all the kids tell me "never mind about teaching us stuff, we read the text over the summer lets just start writing essays we'll grade ourselves and watch prep videos and see you after the AP Exam Mr. J!"
I'd be stunned- and then I'd wake up.
