World's Funniest Sales Training Videos!

It's Friday afternoon, so it's time for happy hour and (of course) the Sales Machine weekly dose of video humor.

This series of videos, entitled "Mainframe: The Art of the Sale" is simply the funniest thing I've ever seen when it comes to capturing the harsh reality of a B2B selling environment.

Just watch them. Trust me. If you've ever sold for a living, especially if it was in high tech sales, these videos are a ROFLMAO experience. I've provided a poll after the final video to register your opinion of the series.
