  1. Really funny. Jim actually does “sell” the heap-of-candy piece quite effectively as the video unfolds, but what really makes it work is the blank incredulity of the other guy. We’re left with a nice unresolved tension between a sense of value and a sense of preposterousness. And the gallery-owner who’s too busy negotiating about a BMW to come out and talk to anyone, and the gum-chewing girl behind the reception desk, are priceless.
