More bang for your buck.

Zoomer: “Shooting It All To Hell” - 82s

Mary DeBoutez Zellmer-Fenoglio isn't your typical saleswoman. She swears, she shoots, and she isn't afraid to destroy her own merchandise… but at least you'll never forget one of her sales pitches.

This bonkers trailer for Sam Huntley's upcoming documentary ‘Zoomer' finds Zellmer-Fenoglio in full flow, as she ‘welcomes' viewers to her Kansas junk yard-stroke-antiques shop. Like an informercial written by Quentin Tarantino, it's not for the faint-hearted.

It is, however, grossly entertaining, with the proprietor's turns of phrase and gift recommendations ("I built this myself and the bastards don't even want it!") putting regular sales patter to shame. One can only hope the completed film is worth a browse, too.
