We're Hired!!!!, 17 May 2005
Author: Michael H from Coastal Maine

Beautiful short about one of my former careers, CAR SALES!! Though done a bit different than what I did. Brylcreemed new car sales guy gets interviewed by brylcreemed doughy sales manager who feels that new guy will be perfect for the sales team. Despite studying all the sales manuals and listening to Cop Killer by Body Count, he can't get the hang of selling cars (except one to old man Simmons) He's bummed and wants to kill himself. So does doughy guy who asks for advice from his senile dad (improper use of handkerchief)Dad sets him straight by telling him he must show his salesmen what they are doing wrong, how to go about it the right way and to use more brylcreem. Sales skyrocket thru the roof, all the sales guys get their big commission checks and go back home to their bottle of booze(and brylcreem)and live happily ever after!!
