haggling, aint nobody got time for that

Last week Edmunds.com posted some new ads featuring grocery store clerks haggling with costumers for their groceries. Sure negotiating the price of brussel sprouts isn’t the same as negotiating a new hoopty, but that's the exaggerated point Edmunds is trying to make. The ads are pretty funny for most of us regular going, car buying consumers, but not everyone was pleased. Shortly after the videos went up, car dealerships started to complain. They didn't like the way Edmunds was putting a so-called negative stereotype on car dealerships. Seems a bit extreme considering not a single car dealership was called out in the ads. Well, the complaints must have worked because the videos were pulled, but this is the Internet we’re talking about so of course you can still watch.
