Apart from helping you sell a product, crazy marketing skills can make you popular. Just like this street vendor from a recent viral video. The unidentified man selling laser swords at a traffic light passionately demonstrates the product to prospective buyers. The sword in the clip resembles the lightsaber of the Star Wars movies.
Despite the assurance of the customer's interest the man completes the demo of the product. The man's “disciplined” approach to selling his product caught the internet's attention, garnering a ton of reaction. “When you are disciplined at your work,” read the text on the video.
The video has garnered over 4.7 lakh views on Instagram so far. “Star Wars peoples want to know his location. Bhejo, bhejo inhe,” wrote a user while others enquired to know about the vendor's reaction.
Lauding the vendor’s lively attitude, users said that people like him should be appreciated. “Maybe it looks funny but people have to do a lot of things for survival,” read the caption.
Such crazy marketing videos often surface on the Internet.
A clip of a vendor selling fruits in a unique way had also gone viral. The vendor starts by cutting watermelon but before that he smashes a steel plate on the fruit. As he cuts other fruits, he makes weird faces with occasional bizarre sounds.
