Nathan For You – Exterminator


AND THE MANAGER
OF BUGS “A” TO “Z,” A PEST-CONTROL COMPANY BASED OUT OF WOODLAND HILLS,
CALIFORNIA, AND HE’S DESPERATE
TO EXPAND HIS BUSINESS BEYOND THE RESIDENTIAL
HOMES HE NORMALLY SERVICES.
– IT’D BE GREAT IF, I MEAN,
WE LAND ANY KIND OF HOTEL WORK.
– JAVIER WANTED A CONTRACT
WITH A MAJOR HOTEL,
AND I HAD THE PERFECT METHOD
TO WIN HIM THAT DEAL. RATHER THAN MAKING IT
LOOK LIKE THE HOTEL HAS AN EXTERMINATOR VISITING,
WHY DON’T YOU INSTEAD MAKE IT LOOK LIKE THE HOTEL
IS WINNING AN AWARD? – RIGHT. – EVERY HOTEL’S GREATEST FEAR IS
HAVING TO HIRE AN EXTERMINATOR, BECAUSE THEIR ARRIVAL
IS BASICALLY AN ANNOUNCEMENT THAT THE HOTEL HAS PESTS, SO IF JAVIER COULD DISGUISE
HIS PURPOSE TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE HE’S THERE
TO GIVE THE HOTEL AN AWARD, HE’D NOT ONLY DELIGHT GUESTS, BUT SURELY WIN A CONTRACT
WITH THE HOTEL THAT WANTS TO KEEP
THEIR PEST PROBLEM A SECRET. – NOW, HOW–I MEAN,
DO I SHOW UP WITH– I MEAN, I JUST–
I-I–AS FAR AS, I MEAN– – IF CUSTOMERS SEE YOU
COMING IN, THEY’RE ACTUALLY
GONNA BE LIKE, “OH, THIS HOTEL
IS REALLY GOOD,” YOU KNOW, RATHER THAN SEEING
AN EXTERMINATOR AND BEING LIKE,
“OH, THIS HOTEL IS NOT SO GOOD.” – [laughs]
YOU’VE DONE THIS BEFORE. YOU KNOW,
YOU’RE A BUSINESS MAJOR. I MEAN, WHAT’S THE WORST
THAT’S GONNA HAPPEN? – JAVIER WAS ON BOARD
WITH THE CONCEPT. SO, TO SELL THIS TO A HOTEL,
I NEEDED TO SHOW THEM EXACTLY HOW THE SYSTEM
WOULD WORK, SO I HAD ONE OF JAVIER’S
SERVICE VANS REWRAPPED TO LOOK LIKE A DELIVERY VEHICLE
FOR THE HOTEL EXCELLENCE AWARDS, A VERY PRESTIGIOUS ORGANIZATION
THAT I MADE UP. THEN JAVIER AND I WORKED
TO DEVELOP A DISCREET METHOD FOR EXTERMINATING
EVERY ROOM IN A HOTEL. LIKE, SOME SORT OF SECRET…
– A COMPARTMENT OR OR AN OPENING.
– COMPARTMENT THAT OPENS UP. WITH THE SYSTEM NOW IN PLACE,
I GOT PERMISSION FROM THE HISTORIC MAYFAIR HOTEL
TO SHOOT A DEMONSTRATION VIDEO OF OUR METHOD THAT WE COULD THEN
PRESENT TO THEIR MANAGEMENT. IT BEGINS BY ARRIVING
IN OUR COVERT VEHICLE, THEN REMOVING WHAT LOOKS
LIKE A LARGE TROPHY THAT’S BEING AWARDED
TO THE HOTEL. THIS SERVES A DUAL PURPOSE
OF BOTH GETTING OUR EQUIPMENT INSIDE,
AND IMPRESSING GUESTS, AS THEY SEE THAT THEY’RE
CURRENTLY RESIDING IN THE HOTEL WITH THE LEAST AMOUNT
OF BEDBUGS. – WITH THE LEAST BEDBUGS?
– YEAH. – SO IT’S A POSSIBILITY
OF SOME BEING THERE. – WE’RE JUST DELIVERING
THE AWARD, WE DON’T KNOW.
– OH, OKAY. – THEN, WE MAKE OUR WAY
INTO THE PRIVATE BACK OFFICES WHERE WE CAN SAFELY REMOVE
ALL OUR GEAR WITHOUT ANYONE SEEING. ONCE THAT’S DONE,
WE CONVERT OUR AWARDS TABLE INTO A CUSTOM-DESIGNED
MAID CART, AND I CHANGE MY OUTFIT
TO LOOK NATURAL PUSHING IT. THE HOLLOWED-OUT INTERIOR
THEN ALLOWS JAVIER TO TRAVEL FROM ROOM TO ROOM
WITHOUT DRAWING ANY SUSPICION FROM HOTEL GUESTS. [beeps]
YOU OKAY IN THERE? – YEAH. – WHEN WE GET
TO AN INFESTED ROOM, THE CART BLOCKS THE DOORWAY
AND JAVIER IS ABLE TO SNEAK OUT
WITHOUT ANYONE SEEING. A QUICK HANDOFF OF THE VACUUM
THEN GETS OUR EQUIPMENT INSIDE, AND JAVIER CAN GET TO WORK SPRAYING DOWN
THE PEST-RIDDEN AREAS. ALTHOUGH WE DIDN’T
FIND ANY IN THIS HOTEL, JAVIER TOLD ME HE OFTEN
ENCOUNTERS MATTRESSES THAT GET SO INFESTED
WITH BEDBUGS THEY HAVE TO BE THROWN OUT. SO I ALSO WANTED TO SHOW
THE HOTEL MANAGER THAT WE HAD A METHOD
TO SECRETLY DISPOSE OF ONE WITHOUT GUESTS THINKING
ANYTHING FISHY WAS GOING ON, AND SINCE THE MAYFAIR CATERED
TO A LOT OF ASIAN CLIENTELE, THE PERFECT COVER
WAS OBVIOUS. IN THE GUISE
OF AN IMPROMPTU CELEBRATION, WE WERE ABLE TO TAKE
A MATTRESS STRAIGHT THROUGH THE LOBBY,
AND ONCE OUTSIDE, ALL IT TOOK WAS A QUICK
IDENTITY CHANGEOVER TO KEEP EVERYTHING
LOOKING NORMAL TO ONLOOKERS. THEN, IN THE BLINK OF AN EYE,
WE’RE GONE, WITHOUT ANYONE EVER KNOWING THE HOTEL HAD A PROBLEM
WITH PESTS. SO LATER THAT WEEK,
I WAS HOPEFUL OUR SALES VIDEO WOULD BE ENOUGH TO WIN OVER
THE MAYFAIR MANAGER, MIKE SCHOEFFIN. – UNDERNEATH THAT DRAGON
IS OUR MATTRESS THAT WAS COVERED WITH BEDBUGS,
INFESTED WITH BEDBUGS. – AND YOU CAN SEE WE’VE BEEN
DEVELOPING A NEW METHOD OF SPRAYING THE PUBLIC AREAS
USING A BLIND MAN’S CANE. SO TO GUESTS,
IT JUST LOOKS LIKE, “OH, THERE’S A BLIND MAN
STUMBLING AROUND THE LOBBY.” – RIGHT.
– SO THAT’S WHAT WE’RE ABOUT. – AND ONCE OUR SALES VIDEO
WAS DONE,

  1. This is fucking gold. First of all, this plan is actually pretty smart, unlike the rest of his ideas. Secondly, that mattress dragon is the funniest thing ever, lmao

  2. What was really great is symbolism of a walking out dragon, who kinda signifies bed bugs that actually disappear with a mattress

  3. Comes up with weird but somewhat great ideas and goes on to ruin it by doing something extra.👏👏👏👏
