Guy Produces Professional Quality Commercial To Sell His Girlfriend's $500 1996 Honda Accord

November 3, 2017

This is the very quality commercial produced by Max Lanman to sell his girlfriend's 1996 Honda Accord with 141,095 miles on eBay. The production value was high to say the least, and it made me wonder if he's actually trying to sell the vehicle, or get hired to make car commercials. My guess is multi-tasking. The fine print at the end of the video:

Limited time offer. 0% APR for qualified buyers with Ebay accounts in good standing. Cash or cashier's check only. Bank will verify payment prior to release of vehicle. 141,095 miles as of 11/1/2017. Maintenance records available on request. Clean title. Registered through 8.8.2018. Passed smog check in August 2017. Brand new battery. Paint is in fantastic shape with few cosmetic dings. Drives like a dream. 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 my actual girlfriend. Do not attempt. Girlfriend is now fiance.

Bidding started at $499 (around the car's actual value), but right now the current bid is over $30,000, presumably placed by someone who has no intention of actually paying. Unless 1996 Honda Accords are some sort of collector's item that I didn't know about. Are they? Because I'll go collect some tonight with a coat hanger and some hot wires if they are. "You don't know anything about stealing cars, do you?" I can't even start my own car with the key in the ignition. "That's the glovebox." Cars are complicated.

Keep going for the commercial.

Thanks to DMAN, blue16 and Scott R, who agree selling a lifestyle is the key to selling just about everything. Except toilet paper, ass-wiping is not a lifestyle.

  • AWWWWWW LAME!! Last I checked it was at $150,000 with 3 days still left to bid, now it's "unavailable", wonder what happened..

    eBay shut it down would be my guess. They do that sometimes when someone's going to make too much from a sale on eBay for an item that's not worth the price it's selling for. Just another mechanism to protect the stupid and weak from making mistakes for them to learn from. Just like all the Steam protections on trading that Valve put in place to stop Tards getting scammed.

  • What kinda bullshit is that? "Sorry, even though no one broke any rules, we're gunna fuck up your sale here cuz we've decided that's too much to pay for this product."

    Hope that wasn't the reason, that seems like some ridiculous totalitarian bullshit right there. :-/

    Welcome to the Internet. Every website has it's tyranny. Twitter banning "racists." Youtube demonetising Conservatives. Minds.com with it's block function. Forums with power playing admins. You literally can't escape it. I think the only reason I can talk shit here is because GW is too drunk to notice.

  • SmokeThatSkinWagon

    It's back up as a new listing here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ho...

    According to the new listing: "Ebay has canceled the original auction in error and has asked us to start the auction over."

    I would be SUPER pissed at eBay if the final bid didn't get close to that original ridiculous amount.

  • Yikes! Ebay should have to pay the difference if it sells for anything less than 200K, since it was at 150K with 3 days left to bid.

  • Roark

    As of right now: Current bid $135,800.00

  • captaindash

    Well done, sir.

  • dougfunnay

    most of these bids are probably by companies trying to dangle a carrot before making him a job offer

  • Hazakabammer

    Well then let's hope they get permanently banned from eBay for abusing the system. :)

  • Bubbubsky

    That was great....and surprisingly funny, too. Well done.

  • sebastian

    lmao over $100k now...

  • Jenness

    That's insane - and wonderful!

  • Hazakabammer

    But mostly insane.

  • Deplorable Erik Dee

    Dude nailed it. Hope the check clears.

  • Frédéric Purenne

    OMFG! He's at $32k on his ebay posting... Marketing win.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I wonder if this dude would help me sell my damaged 05 Grand Marquis... I could do a lot with $55k+ (which it's up to as I post this).

  • Hazakabammer

    Just imagine it, you can finally buy that lifetime supply of Fleshlights. Or push the boat out and get a harem of sex dolls.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Or maybe something boring and mundane to better suit my personality. Like pay off student loans so they stop snagging $400 a month from my paycheck before I even see it.

  • Hazakabammer

    Hey, we all make shitty decisions. Your family never taught you that student loans were a bad idea and that there's no light at the end of the tunnel for a worker bee. Financial education is learned at home. Schools can't teach something they don't know, that is, poor rat-race teachers can't teach you how to beat the system, for that you need a mentor or someone magnanimous enough to help you.
