They say a great salesman can sell anything, anywhere, any time. And 27-year-old Jonathan Niederer of Biddeford, Maine, proves the point.
He hawks bananas and other snacks to road-weary travelers at the southbound service plaza on I-95 in Kennebunk.
Niederer has developed sales techniques that you just have to see and hear to believe.
Not surprisingly, he sells more bananas that any other cashier. Using a captivating combination of soft singing and jazz hands, he reels in customers.
What is surprising is that Niederer is going to college full-time to be a computer technician.
It's hard to imagine him spending his days in front of a screen instead of people.
"After much trial and error, I found out if you didn't fit your sales pitch into just under six seconds, people would walk right by," said Niederer.
If ever there was a natural pitchman, it's "Banana Man."
