I think that every Sales / Project Manager has dealt with clients using similar negotiation tactics at some point in their career.
As funny as these analogies are, clients often don’t realize that sometimes they are acting the same way as the characters in this video: for example, requiring state-of-the art Web 2.0 Development and Enterprise-level services but expecting them at a fraction of what they actually cost to produce. In my personal experience, even if they do find a developer or a company inexperienced and naive enough to do the work at such terms, these projects almost certainly end in disaster. We’ve seen too many cases of originally turned-away clients coming back to us having to redo all the work and paying twice at the end. Enjoy:
