Channel Stuffing

She's driving away
With the dim lights on
And she's making a play
She can't go wrong
--The Cars

Amazing pics of new, unsold cars parked by the thousands in various locations around the world. Making products and then either holding them in FGI or working deals with downstream distributors to hold them is affectionately known as 'channel stuffing.'

No industry stuffs channels better than the carmakers.

Freb: You ever feel bad about any of this?
Donny: Hell, no. I'm Robin Hood, man. I rob from the rich and give to the needy.
Freb: You mean the poor.
Donny: No, like I said, the needy. 'Cause brother, we need this car."
