Danny Trejo goes undercover to sell cars.

In this episode of Stars Selling Cars, watch Danny Trejo of Heat, Con Air, and Machete fame play a used car salesman.

Clad in a dark blonde wig, a lighter accent, and a pale yellow shirt with a “Bob” nameplate, the legendary actor strolls through used car parking lots, shaking hands and asking people what they are looking for as a car salesman in Stars Selling Cars.

One curious exchange finds Trejo admitting dealers purposely lie when asked about fuel economy numbers, citing a vehicle with a 30 mpg rating before cutting it by 10 after confessing. Other sales pitches are hilariously amateur, with the actor stumbling through his words and drawing bemusement.

In the end, Trejo starts reciting names of “actors” he co-starred alongside or sold used cars to before removing his wig and revealing himself to customers, getting a few laughs. Ut makes for some lighthearted great content.

The web comedy series from autoblog.com features other celebs like James Van Der Beek, former basketball star Rick Fox, rapper/actor Method Man, and “The Office” alum Kate Flannery trying their hands at car sales around Los Angeles.
