Pier One Training Rap Video Gives New Meaning To Embarrassment (VIDEO)

These poor, poor Pier 1 Imports employees in the early 2000s. Nobody can accuse Pier 1 of not going above and beyond with this training tape, but perhaps making a rap video that takes place in a midscale home decor retail store in order to teach effective sales techniques was not the way to go.

Presumably, all new hires had to endure this training video wherein a bunch of suburbanite actors playing Pier 1 representatives "rapped" at them with a chorus of "Let's engage with the customer/Let's make a sale," the mantra of Floor Manager Biggie Smalls.

We all remember the famous Pier 1/Bed Bath & Beyond feud that tragically left scores dead last decade, right?
