These fake Apple employees try talking people into buying rival products instead

“Honestly, I would just sell it and go Microsoft instead.”

ALTHOUGH THERE ARE no Apple stores in this country, the style and layout of their stores are well known.

And so too are the staff who are trained to be knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the products they sell. But what happens when they not only stop recommending their own products, but plug rival products instead?

That’s what the YouTube channel NelkFilmz decided to do by going into one of their local Apple stores and claiming to work there.

It mostly involves them recommending other products (mainly Microsoft) to visitors and telling them how they should avoid Apple products entirely.

It doesn’t take long for the real staff to notice them, causing them to ‘quit’ their jobs and tell everyone to switch to Microsoft products instead (which leads to some sporadic clapping just to make the whole thing more awkward).
