I remember when I was still in college and I attended an interview at Best Buy. During the interview, they asked me to describe my background, previous job duties and other normal interview questions. I was answering these questions with confidence. I felt like it was a game of tennis and I was returning every serve with precision. Until they threw me a huge swerve, the interviewer pulled out a pen from his pocket and asked me to sell it to him! I was confused and I nervously repeated the question while thinking about an answer at the back of my mind. I grabbed the pen and started pitching about how nice the pen looked, the ease of using it to write and so on. At the end of the day, I didn’t get the job and with experience I realize where I went wrong. This is what I have understood at the question and the way I should have approached it.
Hopefully this helps someone in the future when you come across this kind of question. Remember the point of being asked is for the interviewer to know if you think creatively and outside the box.
