We have been woken up many times by the strange noises made by fruit and vegetable hawkers running down our lane. If you noticed, each vendor made a unique sound to announce its arrival. Indian street food vendors have always had an innate sense of marketing. But this particular vendor went the extra mile to gain attention. A food vlogger posted a video of a fruit seller who employs a rather bizarre marketing technique to sell his fruits. The video stunned the internet and went viral.
Vlogger Amar Sirohi posted the video on his Instagram page ‘foodie_incarnate’. The fruit seller screams and howls while showing off his fruits – mostly melons. He looks like he is going to war before cutting a watermelon. He bangs a metal tray on his head and a watermelon. In one shot, he even kisses the watermelon. “What do you think he is doing: Overacting or Marketing?” the caption in the post asks the viewers.
