Have you ever wondered why auctioneers talk at such tongue-twisting speeds? Apparently, it’s to hypnotize bidders… See, auctioneers don’t just talk fast, they use a form of rhythmic chanting that lulls buyers into a conditioned pattern of call and response as if they’re playing a game of “Simon Says.” What’s more, the speed gives buyers a sense of urgency: Bid now or lose out!
But say what you want about this business practice, the best and most practiced auctioneers have a musical flow and rhythm to their work that is quite incredible. In fact, the fastest rapper alive may very well be a white cowboy, and he looks eerily like Mac from Always Sunny In Philadelphia wearing a cowboy hat. Have a look at the video below!
