WATCH: Call off the search, we’ve found the most enthusiastic salesman in Ireland

Conor Heneghan

Introducing Johnny O’Connor, surely the most enthusiastic salesperson in all of Ireland.

Though sales of new cars have increased significantly in 2016 (by 19% in fact), car salespeople still have a job on their hands getting customers to commit to making what is a pretty significant purchase.

Salesmen and women have employed all sorts of techniques in an effort to seal the deal over the years and in more recent times, a viral video has become a technique employed by many garages.

Finbarr Galvin’s Skoda & SEAT Dealership have become the latest garage to go down that route and they have an ace up their sleeve in the form of Johnny O’Connor, who will surely take some beating as the most enthusiastic salesperson in Ireland.

Sure, some will suggest that the video is a bit loud and in-your-face at times, but there’s no escaping the charisma of O’Connor, who was probably off to sell ice to an eskimo once shooting had finished.

What a man.
