On Reddit a few days ago, someone posted a very unusual commercial made to sell a very ordinary thing on eBay, a used car.
It’s a used 1996 Honda with the nickname Greenie and Max Laman thought he would help his girlfriend out by making a 1:11 minute video,
“‘Greenie'” is a treasure,” the eBay ad states. “The original paint is in great shape save for a few cosmetic dings.”
The video features an actor playing Laman’s girlfriend and a real cat who plays a prominent role.
“You, you’re different. You do things your way. That’s what makes you one of a kind,” the narrator says.
The interior footage of the driver (who’s not Laman’s real girlfriend) shows a woman with a coffee pot beside her and a grey cat sitting in the car.
A disclaimer at the end of the video mentions the cat.
Cat and coffee pot not included. Bug shield, rubber duckies and tape converter included. Featured girlfriend is not actual girlfriend, but an actor. Stunts not performed by a professional driver, but just my actual girlfriend. Do not attempt. Girlfriend is now fiance. (sp)
The car is listed for $499. Bids are now at $131,000 showing just how much interest the eBay ad has generated. The video has been seen more than 1.5 million times.
