    A flash drive! You can go on and on about how awesome and useful it is :D You could also talk about the technical side!
    That's what I would do :?)

    I've done something like this before, just pick an everyday object you know a good bit about and present it as if your trying to sell it. I used a pair of headphones.

    I suppose they wanna see if he's able to sell anything.
    It's a good way to see if someone has the social skills and skills about "bull****ting" about an item until the customer wants it :)

    Yes and that is exactly the type of stores I stay away from. You can talk about a product all you want but the more you push something on someone, the more likely you are to piss them off.

    You can easily tell what type of social skills the person has just by having casual conversation with them.

    Incorrect. You can tell what kind of inpersonal social skills a person has by this practice, but you can't really judge a person in 5 minutes truthfully. Especially if they are really a social person past the small talk or if they are even a decent person.

    Bring in an old motherboard or cpu and confuse them sh!tless? Probably not a good idea...

    I was put on the spot @ sprint with 2 people interviewing me. they removed a pen from their pocket and asked me to sell it to them without any preparation. Then i had to sell a Yo-Yo... complete win..

    Pick something really exciting, something that will get everyones attention. like an animal.
