For most of us, when it comes time to sell a used car we either put a sign in the window, or list it online and hope for the best. And that was the original intention when Carrie Hollenbeck decided to sell her 1996 Honda Accord on E-Bay. But then her film maker fiancee, Max Lanman, had a brilliant idea: what if they made a commercial advertising the car in the same way someone might advertise a luxury car?
It started as a joke, but Max went all in and pretty soon created a used car commercial so epic that the bids on E-Bay soared over $150,000. Unfortunately, someone in E-Bay's fraud department was unaware of the commercial or its viral status, and cancelled the auction. Once it was restarted, the bidding continued and though no where near its original listing, it's currently over $5,000. Not too bad for a twenty-one-year old used car.
