Nathan For You – The Price-Match Plan

Nathan For You – The Price-Match Plan


Alen Harikian is the owner
of Speers TV,
a South-Pasadena
electronics store
that’s been operating
in the neighborhood
for over 60 years.But ever since a massive
Best Buy moved in
just minutes away
from his tiny shop,
he’s been finding it impossibleto keep up with their
aggressive pricing.
– Their sales are ridiculous. I mean, there’s no way
that I can compete. –And if it keeps up,Speers TV is at risk
of going extinct.
So I paid Alen a visit
with an ambitious solution
to undercut
his biggest competitor.
Are you familiar with
the Best Buy price-match policy? – Yeah. It’s horrible. I mean, it’s bad
for small business. –One of the main reasonsAlen has such a hard time
competing with Best Buy
is because of their aggressive
price-match policy,
which guarantees
they will match the price
of any local competitor,preventing stores like Speers
from underselling them,
but if Alen
dropped his prices so low
to make his TVs virtually free,according to Best Buy’s
own policy,
they would have to match
that price, too,
giving Alen
a short window of time
where he could buy up
all their inventory for $1
and then resell those TVs
for any price he wants
to make a huge profit.The plan: use Best Buy’s
price-match policy against them
to get Speers an endless supply
of $1 TVs.
– Um… It’s a great idea. – It might take a little bit
of work and time to do. – Okay. – Do you have a lot
going on right now? – No, I honestly don’t. No. – So you don’t
have commitments at home or anything right now? Relationship stuff? – I’m not in a relationship, no. – I’m not in a relationship
either, so… – Oh. – We can both work on this,
you know, full-time. – Okay. All right. That’s fine. –After a bit more discussion,Alen was on board to move
forward with dropping the price
on one of his premium
Samsung HD TV models
to just $1 apiece,but once the new discounted
price went into effect,
people would be flocking
to Speers to get the deal.
So to help dissuade
these bargain hunters
from buying up
all of Alen’s dollar TVs,
I implemented a strict
dress code, requiring customers
to wear formal attire
just to enter the store.
I then had all the dollar TVs
moved to an area
at the back of the storeand had a new wall constructed
to surround this area
that could only be enteredthrough a tiny,
two-foot-tall door.
Finally, in between the door
and the TVs,
I added a live alligator,which would hopefully force
customers who made it this far
to reconsider their decision

  3. I love how he's retarded but genius at the same time xD

  4. why the video is so short?

  5. Allen looks like Handy Manny

  6. how come no-one has ever thought of that before

  7. I lost it at the alligator

  8. I actually had to look up how fast an alligator can move because of this episode. lol

  9. The fucking alligator kills me, I can't believe they did that shit

  10. WHere is the rest of this episode?

  11. I lost it when he said "buy up all their inventory" sooo funny!!

  12. I really hope Trump doesn't try to cancel Nathan For You . . .

  13. This show is too good, it needs more views!!

  14. Why don't they just upload the full show here?! I really wanted to watch this one

  15. Is there any way I can watch this in the UK by streaming?

  16. The alligator part is awful. They dragged it across the floor and while I know they are tough, have respect and care for the animal. They think and feel like any other animal and shouldn't be made uncomfortable.

  17. full episode please?

  18. fuck that i'd take the alligator.

  19. Or hire a bunch of relatives to pretend like they have been buying all of the merch

  20. what episode is this?
    I need to see this hahah

  21. it tried to watch full episode but not working in comedycentral.com wtf

  22. I came here from the H3 Podcast

  23. this is brilliant i'm dying

  24. Came here from H3H3 😀

  25. Ethan brought me to Nathan. 😀

  26. Anyone here from H3H3?

  27. Papa Bless! Thanks Ethan

  28. Best Buy shut that down lol

  29. Where is the rest?

  30. omg i can't stop laughing

  31. i always feel bad for this owner, seems so bummed

  32. OMG! This was hilarious!

  33. I would still risk getting the tv

  34. This show is way too funny to be on Comedy Central.

  35. I was lucky enough to get one of the TV's for a dollar. But I'm also missing a hand now!

  36. "We built a wall around the TVs that can only be passed through a 2 foot tall door, then we put a live alligator to deter anyone who got this far"

  37. Stanhope sent me here.

  38. Didn't know about this show until Doug Stanhope plugged it on Joe Rogan's podcast.

  39. Stanhope brought me here. Thank god for that man.

  40. Alan looks like Morty off Rick and Morty

  41. How is this genius? How is this sustainable? Is everyone 8 yo and high on weed? What a weak bandaid fix cheap idea. Asking him if he was doing anything is same as saying " hey I have a childish (idiotic) solution for your business dilemma and have no concept of how the real world works would you be interested?"

  42. what a fucking scam this youtube channel is. Upload the full thing you stingy fucks!

  43. This sort of seems like it should work..

  44. You can just refuse the sale you know that?

  45. A live what???

  46. How would the TV get through the tiny door anyway?

  47. I love nathan for you , need more

  48. That guy was hoping Nathan was going to hit on him

  49. funny good i like

  50. Nathan just might be a mad genius with excellent grades

  51. The best scam is when cc told us on the bottom to login to watch full episode no sign in required but then there was one. Haha great cc

  52. Watch the full episode now. No TV provider log-in required…

    Goes to cc.com, Find your TV provider and then sign in with your username and password.

  53. Ok, so here's how to use the stupid link in the description to watch the full episode.

    It will take you to a log In Page which gives you the option to use a one time, 24 hour pass. You can log in with FB or Twitter, or create an account. Since I have a sock puppet account already logged in I opted for the FB log in, then there is a age verification, it's quick, and I'm sure the account Is now slightly more cluttered with spam, but that's what sock accounts are for.

    The video on that site, which is a legitimate tv provider site, is obnoxiously littered with ads, but it's watchable.

    This episode probably one of my favorite things I've ever seen some one create, and after watching the teaser, I had to see if some one was willing to rent a tux, crawl through a tiny door, and then realize there's a fucking alligator between them and the TV's. Some people do, and its amazing, I can't express how worth it this episode is.

    Anyway, that's the process, if you're poor like me and jut want one time shot to see the rest, That's how.

  54. Nathan is a genius. Even if someone made it past the alligator and was able to get the TV, they wouldn't be able to fit it through the 2 foot door.

  55. Fuckin best buy. Nathan is a genuis

  56. the bit where he takes Speer in to see the psychiatrist is possibly the funniest, most brilliant little bit of American TV ever

  57. Even if you got past the gator, could the TVs fit through the door?

  58. I can't feel my face 😭😂🤣

  59. “Do you have a lot going on right now?”

  60. 2:20 Florida has entered the chat

  61. Part 2 https://youtu.be/Q0xPii0Eiys

  62. His ideas are so good and creative. I love them.

  63. Do people actually think this is funny?
    Or do we just watch it cuz of the great ideas

  64. Live gator was a nice touch, exactly what this plan needed

  65. "no tv provider login required"
    literally requires a tv provider login

    YOU FUCKING ASSHOLE

  66. In the end Alan is set up with a girl because nathan gave up and saw that Alan just really wanted a gf

  67. lmfao im dead xdddd

  68. I would go through that alligator for a tv
    My previous one was stolen lol

  69. This show is hilarious 😂

  70. Finally one of his plans makes sense. 2’ door and live alligator

  71. This actually sounds genius

  72. this is golden haha

  73. Your webshite is utter dogshit. Cheers for wasting my time there. First you say no provider log in, then you need a provider log in. Oh, but you get a 24 hour pass, so technically you didn't lie, in a corporate lawyer scum fuck kind of way. Then the facebook link doesn't work because apparently Facebook thinks you can't be trusted (that's like a priest raising his eyebrows and coughing when you offer to babysit – you are beyond fucked). So then I'm signing in and logging on (because of course security is paramount here;wouldn't want someone watching your site pretending to be me like they surely will). Then the fucking video is unavailable in my region. Another lie, as it turns out, because if I just steal all your shit from a third party shady site it turns out it's entirely available. Good business model boys, lemme know how that works out for you. I'm off to watch your stuff now while you get fuck all in the way of traffic or money.

  74. “Do you have a lot going on right now?”

    “No…”

  75. It's so hard to find good comedy shows these days but this show is the shit

  76. Feels like there is a legit lawsuit there against Best Buy. Can't make empty promises (threats) to local competitors to intimidate them. They have to pay up. It's THEIR OWN POLICY for Christ sakes.

  77. How can you cancel this?

  78. Woah, I live in south Pasadena

  79. Legend has is Florida man managed to get all those TV's

  80. I'm not in a relationship either…😂

  81. even if they get past the aligator and get a TV. how would they get it through the tiny door?

  82. This legitimately is a genius idea
