To market to market
It was a typical Saturday at the market until we see and HEAR this guy. Q asks what the big deal is about the grapes. The vendor had a great marketing gimmick. He was acting like the crowd was going crazy for the grapes. He'd pass out empty bags to people and hold up the beautiful grapes. At first it looks like he's passing out bunch after bunch of grapes, but it turns out he's just setting them on the table. "Luxe!" he'd shout. That's right, grapes, the new luxury item. Diamonds, yachts, grapes. It was street theatre. Couldn't resist recording him.
