Excuse me miss, can I show you something amazing, for only twenty seconds of your time?
There’s nothing young Israelis like better than to make a fast buck. That’s why when they are in their twenties, after the mandatory army service, many of them travel abroad to work mainly in two countries: Japan, selling paintings to wealthy Japanese, or to the US selling nail care products to soccer moms. The legitimacy of these jobs is borderline at best as the hiring company usually enrolls them in bogus college courses in order to get a work permit.
Rami Feinstein , a rising Israeli singer-songwriter, usually sings in Hebrew, but after he worked in the US selling manicure products to finance his debut album, he decided to take the script he worked off of to lure customers, and compose it into a song.
Here is the video for the song, called “Something Amazing“:
Something Amazing – Rami Feinstein – lyrics
Excuse me miss,
Can I ask you a question?
Do you have natural nails?
Can I show you something amazing,
For only twenty seconds of your time?
See on a regular day
Here, come close,
Who? Me? I’m just…
No, I’m not a salesman,
