Default MTV Bakra, makes Skoda salesman their victim!!!

Dunno how many off yo'll got to see this but, MTV managed to make a Skoda salesman's worst nightmare come true.

They disguised Abhishek Bachan as a Sardar (who owns a M800 and knows nothing about cars) and sent him out to test drive a Skoda Octavia. He kept asking the salesguy all sorts of question in a wierd manner with an ocasional cough (which the salesguy didn't seem to enjoy).

He asks the salesman the price of the car and when he says 12-13 lakhs, Abishek goes "Terah laakh?? Meri Maruti 800 to sirf 2 laakh me aati hai!!" The salesguy didn't know what to say at that point.

He then asks the salesguy to go out and get some water for him but, the moment he gets off the car, Abishek floors the throttle and takes off leaving the salesguy, high n dry.

He then gets blasted by the sales incharge (who is also part of the gag team) and is asked to wait in the manager's cabin where Abhishek brings an end to the gag by placing the Bakra Cap on the salesman.

Boy did he look releaved. If this was to happen for real, god knows what he'd have gone through. He'd have lost his job for sure.

In a way it was a good gag, as it taught him a good lesson. No matter what happens, never leave the test car with the customer inside.

Yea Shan I remember seeing this one. It was out and out hillarious. There were things he said like fugne wale gubbare (air bags) and space for his dog to sit. lol . I also remember the manager asking the salse guy to back to the showroom in a rickshaw using his own money.

I think this was part of a Bunty aur Bubli Special

Haha yeah that was neat. Fugne wale Gubbare!!! LOL

I was waiting for him to say "Inko abhi test karke dekhen kya?" That would have really got the salesguy worked up. Imagine a crash test on a test drive. Hahaha

BTW - does anyone have any idea as to which dealership it was?

Looks funny but the salesman must have had a nightmare! From the salesman's POV its not such a good trick after all. Imagine a 6k PM salary drawing guy taking liablity for a 12L car!!!

That was a one h*** funny bakra.
The salesman had recently joined if I am not mistaken

also the funniest part was the manager asked that salesman as "Which stupid appointed you?" & salseman replied "You sir"
that was damn funny
