Saturday Night Live: Holiday Jewelry from Pandora

This faux commercial, which aired on Saturday Night Live in December 2017, is a pretty brutal takedown of the charm giants. As the narrator intones, “Once you’ve bought her a Pandora bracelet, you can buy her one of these 60-dollar whatevers for every birthday, Mother’s Day and anniversary for the rest of her natural life”, the commercial shows a jewelry-box perspective view of a series of thorougly unexcited women opening their holiday gifts. Ouch.

With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
