Nathan For You – The Price-Match Plan

Alen Harikian is the owner
of Speers TV,
a South-Pasadena
electronics store
that’s been operating
in the neighborhood
for over 60 years.But ever since a massive
Best Buy moved in
just minutes away
from his tiny shop,
he’s been finding it impossibleto keep up with their
aggressive pricing.
– Their sales are ridiculous. I mean, there’s no way
that I can compete. –And if it keeps up,Speers TV is at risk
of going extinct.
So I paid Alen a visit
with an ambitious solution
to undercut
his biggest competitor.
Are you familiar with
the Best Buy price-match policy? – Yeah. It’s horrible. I mean, it’s bad
for small business. –One of the main reasonsAlen has such a hard time
competing with Best Buy
is because of their aggressive
price-match policy,
which guarantees
they will match the price
of any local competitor,preventing stores like Speers
from underselling them,
but if Alen
dropped his prices so low
to make his TVs virtually free,according to Best Buy’s
own policy,
they would have to match
that price, too,
giving Alen
a short window of time
where he could buy up
all their inventory for $1
and then resell those TVs
for any price he wants
to make a huge profit.The plan: use Best Buy’s
price-match policy against them
to get Speers an endless supply
of $1 TVs.
– Um… It’s a great idea. – It might take a little bit
of work and time to do. – Okay. – Do you have a lot
going on right now? – No, I honestly don’t. No. – So you don’t
have commitments at home or anything right now? Relationship stuff? – I’m not in a relationship, no. – I’m not in a relationship
either, so… – Oh. – We can both work on this,
you know, full-time. – Okay. All right. That’s fine. –After a bit more discussion,Alen was on board to move
forward with dropping the price
on one of his premium
Samsung HD TV models
to just $1 apiece,but once the new discounted
price went into effect,
people would be flocking
to Speers to get the deal.
So to help dissuade
these bargain hunters
from buying up
all of Alen’s dollar TVs,
I implemented a strict
dress code, requiring customers
to wear formal attire
just to enter the store.
I then had all the dollar TVs
moved to an area
at the back of the storeand had a new wall constructed
to surround this area
that could only be enteredthrough a tiny,
two-foot-tall door.
Finally, in between the door
and the TVs,
I added a live alligator,which would hopefully force
customers who made it this far
to reconsider their decision

  1. The alligator part is awful. They dragged it across the floor and while I know they are tough, have respect and care for the animal. They think and feel like any other animal and shouldn't be made uncomfortable.

  2. "We built a wall around the TVs that can only be passed through a 2 foot tall door, then we put a live alligator to deter anyone who got this far"

  3. How is this genius? How is this sustainable? Is everyone 8 yo and high on weed? What a weak bandaid fix cheap idea. Asking him if he was doing anything is same as saying " hey I have a childish (idiotic) solution for your business dilemma and have no concept of how the real world works would you be interested?"

  4. The best scam is when cc told us on the bottom to login to watch full episode no sign in required but then there was one. Haha great cc

  5. Watch the full episode now. No TV provider log-in required…

    Goes to, Find your TV provider and then sign in with your username and password.

  6. Ok, so here's how to use the stupid link in the description to watch the full episode.

    It will take you to a log In Page which gives you the option to use a one time, 24 hour pass. You can log in with FB or Twitter, or create an account. Since I have a sock puppet account already logged in I opted for the FB log in, then there is a age verification, it's quick, and I'm sure the account Is now slightly more cluttered with spam, but that's what sock accounts are for.

    The video on that site, which is a legitimate tv provider site, is obnoxiously littered with ads, but it's watchable.

    This episode probably one of my favorite things I've ever seen some one create, and after watching the teaser, I had to see if some one was willing to rent a tux, crawl through a tiny door, and then realize there's a fucking alligator between them and the TV's. Some people do, and its amazing, I can't express how worth it this episode is.

    Anyway, that's the process, if you're poor like me and jut want one time shot to see the rest, That's how.

  7. Nathan is a genius. Even if someone made it past the alligator and was able to get the TV, they wouldn't be able to fit it through the 2 foot door.

  8. the bit where he takes Speer in to see the psychiatrist is possibly the funniest, most brilliant little bit of American TV ever

  9. Your webshite is utter dogshit. Cheers for wasting my time there. First you say no provider log in, then you need a provider log in. Oh, but you get a 24 hour pass, so technically you didn't lie, in a corporate lawyer scum fuck kind of way. Then the facebook link doesn't work because apparently Facebook thinks you can't be trusted (that's like a priest raising his eyebrows and coughing when you offer to babysit – you are beyond fucked). So then I'm signing in and logging on (because of course security is paramount here;wouldn't want someone watching your site pretending to be me like they surely will). Then the fucking video is unavailable in my region. Another lie, as it turns out, because if I just steal all your shit from a third party shady site it turns out it's entirely available. Good business model boys, lemme know how that works out for you. I'm off to watch your stuff now while you get fuck all in the way of traffic or money.

  10. Feels like there is a legit lawsuit there against Best Buy. Can't make empty promises (threats) to local competitors to intimidate them. They have to pay up. It's THEIR OWN POLICY for Christ sakes.
