I do business with a colleague that employs “sign shakers” – at least that’s what I call them. You know the guys who dance on the corners twirling signs, spinning and shaking to whatever they are listing to on their iPod. There is a guy in Sacramento that dresses up like Spiderman. I saw a Mr. Pickles dancer the other day – that kind of freaked me out. My friend’s sign says “Cheap Foreclosures” – that’s it. In Sacramento, a cheap foreclosure might start at $40,000 (yes, this type of home is a dump in need of much work).
Check out this video about a sign shaker. I kept thinking it was a Saturday night live video spoof, but it is legit. Sign Shaker Video. I love the quote, …what are you feeding that boy?
