Door to Door Salesman 1961

1 mins United Kingdom

Ever had a good experience with doorstep salespeople? Maybe you were lucky, but the doorstep has never seemed the best place for a sensible sales decision – which is exactly why companies use it. Television is the perfect medium for exposing tricks of the trade to mass audiences. Less acceptable is the barely veiled assumption that it's foolish housewives signing up to purchases with their hard-working husbands' money.
