Are YOU as brutally honest with prospects as this Girl Scout selling cookies? »

Check out this hilarious video of Mike Rowe reading a letter from a Girl Scout to her dad’s rich friend trying to pitch him on buying girl scout cookies. There’s nothing like the sincerity of kids.

It’s a variation of the Avis, #2, We Try Harder campaign from years ago that’s […]

It’s certainly not something I recommend […]
