Nathan For You – Liquor Store


IN SANTA CLARITA,
CALIFORNIA, AND EVERY DAY,
HE DEALS WITH A PROBLEM THAT HAS VEXED
LIQUOR STORE OWNERS FOR YEARS.
– WE ALWAYS HAVE TEENAGER
TRYING TO COME
AND BUY ALCOHOL.
WE ALWAYS REFUSE THE SALE. – AS FAR AS I’M CONCERNED, NO BUSINESS SHOULD EVER HAVE TO
TURN AWAY A PAYING CUSTOMER, SO I PAID NABIL A VISIT
TO HELP HIM OUT. EVERY TIME YOU TURN AWAY
A TEENAGER WHO’S TRYING TO BUY ALCOHOL,
YOU’RE LOSING A SALE. – YES, BECAUSE THAT’S
WHAT THE LAW IS. – MM-HMM. SO, FROM NOW ON,
YOU ALLOW THEM TO PURCHASE IT, BUT THEY JUST CAN’T TAKE IT HOME
UNTIL THEY’RE 21. THE MAIN REASON
TEENAGERS WANT BOOZE IS TO LOOK COOL
TO THEIR FRIENDS, SO IF NABIL LET MINORS
PURCHASE ALCOHOL, BUT THEN HELD IT
IN A STORAGE LOCKER UNTIL THEIR 21ST BIRTHDAY,
BOUQUET PLAZA LIQUOR WOULD GAIN A TON OF NEW UNDERAGE CUSTOMERS,
WHO COULD THEN BRAG TO THEIR FRIENDS
THAT THEY OWN BOOZE. THE PLAN, INCREASE BUSINESS
BY SELLING ALCOHOL TO MINORS. – COULD BE POSSIBLE, BUT
WHEN YOU GET CLOSE TO THAT AGE, DEFINITELY, YOU DON’T WANT
A VOUCHER THAT SAYS, “OH, YES, I OWN
COUPLE BOTTLE OF LIQUOR,” BUT WHERE THEY ARE?
SO THEY WANT TO HAVE IT. – WELL, NO OFFENSE,
BUT, YOU KNOW, I’M A BIT CLOSER TO MY TEENAGE YEARS
THAN YOU ARE, SO I THINK I KNOW
WHAT YOUTH THESE DAYS WANT. – IF THEY GET THE HAPPINESS
OF “YES, I HAVE IT,” THAT WOULD BE GREAT. – WITH NABIL ON BOARD,
I CREATED SOME TAGS THAT WOULD WORK LIKE
A COAT CHECK SYSTEM FOR ALCOHOL. SO MINORS COULD RECLAIM
THEIR BOOZE FROM STORAGE ONCE THEY TURN 21. NEXT, I HAD TO GET
THE WORD OUT TO YOUNG PEOPLE, SO I ARRANGED A MEETING WITH THE CHAIR
OF A LOCAL YOUTH LITTLE LEAGUE IN THE HOPES OF LANDING
A SPONSORSHIP DEAL.
– YOU SERIOUSLY ARE TALKING
ABOUT PUTTING A BANNER
THAT SAYS,
“WE SELL LIQUOR TO MINORS”? – THESE MINORS DON’T
ACTUALLY GET TO TAKE HOME THE ALCOHOL
TILL THEY’RE 21. – WELL, I DO UNDERSTAND IT,
BUT I’M NOT SURE THAT I AGREE WITH TYING THAT
UP TO OUR LITTLE LEAGUE. DO YOU UNDERSTAND
WHAT I’M SAYING? – I DON’T KNOW
IF THIS HELPS IN ANY WAY, BUT WE’D ALSO BE WILLING
TO OFFER A FREE BOTTLE OF GIN TO EVERY KID IN THE LEAGUE. – NO, I’M SORRY. – THANK YOU
FOR YOUR TIME, THEN. – WELL, THANK YOU
FOR YOUR OFFER. – YEAH.
– I’M SURE IT’LL WORK OUT. OH, NO.
– WHAT? – WHAT IS THIS FOR?
– THIS– – WHAT IS THIS FOR? – [muttering]
– OH, NO, NO, NO. NO, NO.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH, THOUGH. – ARE YOU–
– LET ME SHOW YOU OUT. – NO, NO, ARE YOU SURE?
– YEAH, YEAH. WE’RE DONE. – WITH SPONSORSHIP
OFF THE TABLE, I NEEDED A DIFFERENT WAY
TO REACH THE YOUTH MARKET, SO I HIRED A TEEN ACTOR
TO POSE AS A STUDENT TO GET THE WORD SPREADING
AT A LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL. SO RIGHT OFF THE BAT,
YOU KNOW, BEFORE YOU TALK ABOUT THE LIQUOR STORE
OR ANYTHING, YOU GOT TO ESTABLISH
A RAPPORT SO THE TEENS YOU’RE TALKING TO
THINK YOU’RE COOL. – OKAY.
– SO MAYBE TALK ABOUT HOW SCHOOL SUCKS, YOU KNOW,
OR A BIT ABOUT HOW THE INTERNET’S
AWESOME OR SOMETHING. AND THROW IN
SOME SWEAR WORDS TOO. SO TRY THAT. – HEY, MAN, WHAT’S UP? HEY, DUDE, THAT INTERNET
THESE DAYS IS SO DOPE. MAN, SCHOOL SUCKS, DUDE. YOU CAN JUST GO
ON THE STINKING INTERNET. – WITH CONNOR TRAINED,
I GAVE HIM A BACKWARDS HAT AND SUNGLASSES
SO HE WOULD LOOK COOLER. THEN I SENT HIM
ONTO SCHOOL PROPERTY TO BEGIN SPREADING THE WORD. – SO HOW ABOUT THAT INTERNET,
MAN? WHAT’S UP? OH, THE TEACHER SUCKS, BUT
THE INTERNET RULES, YOU KNOW? SO, ANYWAYS,
I GOT THIS COOL TIP. THERE’S THIS LIQUOR STORE
DOWN THE BLOCK. IT’S CALLED
BOUQUET PLAZA LIQUOR STORE, AND IT SELLS ALCOHOL
TO MINORS. OKAY, I GOT TO GO
BACK TO SKIPPING CLASS. – WITH CONNOR WORKING
THE SCHOOL, I HEADED
BACK TO BOUQUET PLAZA, READY TO RECEIVE
OUR UNDERAGE CUSTOMERS, AND WITHIN MINUTES,
THEY BEGAN TO ARRIVE. – DID YOU READ
THE SIGN OUTSIDE? THAT’S–DID YOU–
– THAT’S REAL? – YEAH.
– YEAH, YEAH. YOU CAN GO GRAB SOME IF YOU WANT.
– YOU WANT TO GO AHEAD AND GRAB YOURSELF
SOME ALCOHOL OR SOMETHING? – [laughs] I MEAN, I GUESS SO.
[laughs] – LOOK WHAT YOU GOT, HUH?
– LOOK AT THAT. – 40 OUNCE.
– OH, THAT’S HUGE, BUDDY. – HIGH LIFE, AWESOME.
– YOU’RE GONNA START HEAVY, DON’T YOU?
– YEAH. [laughter] – SO YOU OWN THIS NOW.
– YEAH, IT’S TIGHT. – PRETTY SWEET.
AH, AH, NOT SO CLOSE. YOU GET A CLAIM CHECK,
SO YOU’RE ALLOWED TO COME BACK AND CLAIM IT WHEN YOU’RE 21. – YEAH, BUT–
[laughs] I WANT IT FOR RIGHT NOW.
I DON’T WANT IT TWO YEARS LATER. – WITH NO REFUNDS ALLOWED,
THE MINORS HAD NO OTHER OPTION BUT TO FILL OUT THE CLAIM CHECK,
ALLOWING THEM TO OWN ALCOHOL WITHOUT THE CONSEQUENCES
OF CONSUMING IT. – WHAT YOU’RE DOING IS WEAK.
THAT SUCKS. – IT’S COOL AND LEGAL. BREAKING THE LAW
IS NEVER COOL. – SEEMS LIKE A WASTE
OF MONEY TO ME. – MY PLAN WAS WORKING,
AND NABIL WAS NOW ABLE TO SELL TO A WHOLE NEW TYPE
OF CUSTOMER. – WHY DID I EVEN
JUST PAY FOR THIS? – BECAUSE YOU’RE ALLOWED
TO OWN THE ALCOHOL. – OKAY, WELL, I DON’T WANT
TO OWN THE ALCOHOL. I WANT THE ALCOHOL. – KNOWING THAT SOME TEENS
WOULDN’T BE SATISFIED LEAVING EMPTY-HANDED,
I HAD A CORNER OF NABIL’S STORE CONVERTED TO LOOK
LIKE A COOL BASEMENT SO MINORS COULD TAKE PHOTOS
WITH THEIR ALCOHOL, BEFORE IT GOES INTO STORAGE, THAT WOULD HELP THEM
BRAG TO THEIR FRIENDS. IT FELT GREAT
TO MAKE YOUNG PEOPLE HAPPY WHILE TEACHING THEM
ABOUT RESPONSIBLE DRINKING. SO AFTER CLOSING UP
FOR THE NIGHT, IT BROKE MY HEART
THAT I HAD TO GIVE NABIL SOME TERRIBLE NEWS. I LOOKED INTO IT,
AND IT TURNS OUT THAT WHAT WE WERE DOING
WAS EXTREMELY ILLEGAL, AND YOU KNOW,
I GOT TO LOOK OUT FOR MYSELF. I’M SORRY. – GOOD EVENING, SIR. – YES?
– ARE YOU THE OWNER OF THIS BUSINESS?
– YES, SIR. HI. – I’M AFRAID I’M GONNA HAVE TO
PLACE YOU UNDER ARREST. – WHY? WHAT’S GOING ON, SIR?
HOW AM I– – FOR DOING GOOD BUSINESS! [dance music] [laughs] ♪ – YOU’RE NOT IN TROUBLE AT ALL,
I WAS JOKING. – SO REALLY?
IT DOES WORK OUT? – YEAH, IT’S NOT ILLEGAL. – OKAY.
– I MEAN, HE’S NOT A REAL COP, HE’S A STRIPPER, YEAH.
– THAT’S OKAY. BUT TO BRING
A STRIPPER TO A BUSINESSMAN, IT’S NOT A REALLY
GOOD IDEA, NO. – OH, YOU DON’T LIKE IT? [music stops]
– NOT AT ALL. LIKE, OKAY– – WELL, IT WAS A JOKE,
YOU KNOW, LIKE, YOU THOUGHT HE WAS A COP.
YOU KNOW? – THAT’S WHAT I’M SAYING,
EVEN IF IT’S GONNA BE A JOKE, NATHAN, TO BRING A BUSINESSMAN,
BRING HIM, LIKE, STRIPPER– A GUY STRIPPER, IT’S NOT REALLY
GONNA BE THE COOL THING TO HAVE. – ALL RIGHT.

  1. I don’t think it’s legal to sell someone anything then not let them have it. That’s like low key stealing.

  2. How can you not be allowed to drink untill fucking 21… thats redicilous. In europe we start drinking since 13.

  3. BS. No Ron Baker just to look for. But teenager was liquor to get drunk. I do not believe that statement is true in anyway.

  4. The thing is the law is no “selling” alcohol to minors so he should get his liquor license tooken away and that wouldn’t pertain to you taking it home or not if u sold it to them they can take it and either Which way if they can’t u both deserve to be arrested for selling it but good one

  5. Nathan's acting seems so similar to Jared from Silicon Valley I wonder if there was any influence either way at some point. I learned about this show from JRE Doug Stanhope episode. I agree with him, this is genius on so many levels.

  6. classic jew manipulating minority business owners with unethical, but legal, business practices for profit. Then a bit of gay subversion at the end.

  7. Nevermind me, a mother with an absurd tattoo on my shoulder. I have rights regardless of my stupid, adult choices.

  8. I showed this to my friend and he covered his eyes at the stripper scene. I was like “why?” And he was like “I don’t wanna see a guy half naked stripping, I’m not gay.” We’re both 20…
