If I recall correctly, this guy was waving at vehicles as they passed by in order to call attention to a laundromat in a small strip shopping center. He wasn't having much luck. Perhaps, however, when people need a laundromat they will remember this guy and bring their clothes in for a wash.
It seems we are getting more and more of these "sales" people standing on street corners or in front of a business with a sign or flag or something to catch the attention of folks driving by. Some of them dance a jig, contort their faces, jump up and down, and generally act like idiots.
I find them distracting and have often wondered how many people have crashed into a tree or another car while watching their antics.
