The Art of Making People Hate You

The Art of Making People Hate You

I know “Your Business Card is Crap!” went viral over a year ago, but it’s the single best example of slimy salesmanship that I’ve found to date.

The guy in this video, Joel Bauer, later went on record saying this is a “character” he made up for his speaking gigs. But I’m not really buying it. I think chances are better that Bauer was embarrassed by people’s reactions, and now he’s trying to backpedal. But maybe he’s just really, really good at playing the part.

What do you think?
