Yeah, They Got The Name Right Now

We have to give our buddy, author and consultant Rick Maurer (@rickmaurer2), a H/T for this one ...

Hyundai, Who's Laughing Now?

Morning Edition, July 7, 2009 · In the early 1990s, Hyundai's image was so bad, the brand served as an insult in a Hollywood movie.

The film was Glengarry Glen Ross — David Mamet's tale of a down and out real estate office. Alec Baldwin plays a highly-paid, corporate heavy.

In once scene, he humiliates one of the agents he's come to fire: "You drove a Hyundai to get here tonight, I drove an $80,000 BMW."

You can read the rest of "Hyundai, Who's Laughing Now?" to get in on the joke.

Also, you might want to stop by Maurer's website, for another amusing tale, "The Naked Truth About Getting People’s Attention", as it will, almost assuredly, get your attention.

Here's the video's Maurer references;
