I’m a M but I just skimmered through the first 18 minutes of that video. Not going through the full hour, sorry. We go through the exact same thing with Rolex. Buying undesirable pieces to create a relationship. Begging and praying for that holy grail watch. And it’s the exact same thing. Some people think if they spend their hard earned money and do the dance they’ll be given the opportunity to get that piece they want at retail price. Only to be shown the door with 3 or 4 watches they didn’t want in their hands. And the truth is not that pretty. Hermes sales advisors are not your friends, as much as they are trained to seem like they are. Sorry, but she’s wrong for creating an emotional connection to Hermes - knowing full well that it’s just a brand - and expecting something in return. Don’t trust or expect anything from brands. Any brand.

Great comment! I’m a huge luxury lover but I’m not gonna sit here and pretend like luxury brands aren’t evil. But then again, they design the game and it’s your choice to play it or not. No one is forcing you to spend all that money at the brand and no one ever promised to give the product you want. It’s kind of like doing all the PRD bitch work for a PPMD hoping they’ll throw you a good project in the near future 😂

LOL this sounds like an entertaining video. I’m not a Hermes shopper but I agree with A1 and A1. Any brand is a fundamentally a business out to maximize profits, they don’t owe customers anything.

I’ll never buy a Birkin, as I can think of better ways to spend 30k, but… this chick in video is nuts, she was totally harassing SA. And as an HR myself I would go beyond that to protect my employees mental health.
