The Most Stunning Ad Ever Made for a Used Car With 128,000 Miles That's Been Puked In Twice

From Adweek:

[quote]"You're going to need an abacus to keep track of all the ass you'll be getting in this thing!" That's one of dozens of stellar lines in the homemade ad below—a truly astonishing collage posted to Craigslist by one Nate Walsh, who may be a scrapbooking fanatic ...but is certainly one of the most inventively twisted human beings in the greater southern Illinois area. Each section is more hilarious than the last, as Walsh pitches what's clearly a piece of crap not just with humor but with panache. It ends up reading like the most amusing infomerical script you've ever read—complete with the stunning price reveal at the end, and the car framed by Wieden-esque images of fighter jets, explosions and fireworks. Seriously, you couldn't do better than this. (It makes that earlier homemade Pontiac ad look like it was made by a preschooler.) Because people are stupid, it's already been flagged for removal from Craigslist.

I've bought two lemons off Ebay because I guess I didn't ask enough questions. My fault if I thought "starts good, runs great, daily driver!" was just a breezy way to indicate that a car ready-to-go. Should I also ask "Is the underside so rusted that the engine could fall out at any moment?" or "Did you switch-out the tires after you took the pictures, for those made for a little Subaru?".

That was fun. He still won't sell that car, though.

I'd buy it to see him naked. I bet he'd be game.

Hope he gets a job in advertising.

Copywriters at some of the advertising agencies I've hired over the years haven't been as talented as this guy.

The ad is worth more than the car. The ad almost makes the car a collector's item.

He is a MUCH better writer than that girl who didn't get into college. Everyone thought she was so good, and she just wasn't.
