So this guy made an amazing commercial to help his girlfriend in selling her used Accord 1996 which already had 141,095 miles on it. He created this video commercial at home with the help of his few friends and the results were just astonishing. The resultant ad was beyond a pro editor’s work. He posted the commercial on Reddit and listed his car on eBay. The Reddit post blew up quickly and Reddit being Reddit started bidding. Users from Reddit went on eBay seller page and took the bid to around $150,000. A $499 used Accord for $150,000! Our guy had to remove and enlist the car three times.
On eBay page, he described this old Accord in a more poetic way “Greenie” is a treasure. The original paint is in fantastic shape save for a few cosmetic dings (see photos). Drives like a dream. Leather seats are in great condition.”
He also made a phrase popular that day “luxury is a state_ of mind“.
