Why Is This Man Eating Off The Ground On A Subway Platform?

Pretty disgusting stuff here, folks. But you’ve got to hand it to this guy for believing in his product. You’re looking at Ravi Dalchand, the brand manager for Bissell Canada. As you may know, Bissell markets vacuum cleaners.

Well, Mr. Dalchand is so convinced that Bissell’s “Symphony All-In-One Vacuum Cleaner” wipes away 99.9 percent of all known germs and bacteria…that he decided to prove it.

In the video above, Ravi can be seen vacuuming a particular area of a Toronto subway platform. He then grabs what looks like baked ziti (or something similar), and tosses it onto the area he just cleaned.

Next, he neatly tucks a large napkin into his collar, and removes a fork from his suit jacket pocket.

Finally…you guessed it…he eats the orange-looking food. Right there. On the subway platform. With his suit on. Yum.

Just as passersby begin to enter the early throes of gagging, Mr. Dalchand produces some bread, as he proceeds to wipe up the remaining pasta sauce from the platform…and eat that too, before declaring that he stands “100 percent” behind this product.

An interesting tactic, to be sure. Who needs infomercials about cleaning when you’ve got a guy eating off a platform that was probably home to a vagrant’s urine at one point in time?

Oh, and just in case you were pitying this poor man and thinking he’s really desperate for a raise, be aware that he happily volunteered for the assignment, wanting nothing in return. I think we call that a real Company Man.
