Back in April a guy made an Ebay advert in an attempt to sell his Ford Focus. Either by pure genius or insanity he created one of the best and funniest adverts for a car ever. He got almost 230,000 views on this advert which I think is amazing considering what he is selling. Other adverts for similar cars can struggle to get into the 1000's.

Also! For those of you that did not get far enough down the page, he put the original pictures that he drew on ebay. They made a total of £194, with the highest price being £50 for a single image. £194 is around 1/5 of the price he sold the car for so I'm sure he is very glad he drew those images.

Below will be a link to said Ebay advert which is very long and if you are going to read it, please read it all because it is so funny.
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220768216260

If you do not want to read it all I will include the drawings that he made to help advertise his car.


The last image will be an image of the time & date the above advert was added to my favourites in preparation for posting this. It was hours and hours before Ensx posted his 'World's Greatest Craiglist Auto Ad Ever' so I was not influenced by him in any way but here is a link to his post if you enjoyed reading this one.

      I didn't do that because as you can see from your comment, you cannot actually read a lot of what is said on the page so I just gave a link instead.

            I said I had saved it because the ebay link won't be there forever.

              Why won't it be there forever?
              It has been there since April so why would they delete it after so many months? Also you never said why you have saved it.

                Sorry i missed some punctuation. The longest I have known an ebay ad to stay is 6 months but they have made some changes recently so it may stay. Sorry for trying to do something to help, I will remove the image now.

          Course I don't mind. It won't affect me in any way and will hopefully help your site out so sure you can use it ;)

              When you say you have credited the post to me, what do you mean? I checked out your website & I see no mention of me. I see that you have however used parts of my description though which might be what you mean? I don't know and I guess it doesn't really matter anyway so I don't know why I'm complaining! Haha!

                  Ahhh I see! I tried clicking that once before though and it wouldn't let me which would be why I didn't realise. Thanks :P

                    Ah I was probably still editing the post. Hope it drives some traffic back to your excellent post and of course some more points :)

                      I'm already quite amazed that this post has got +46 already, only 5 hours after posting it! Especially as Ensx posted a car advert post and I think he currently has +11... Oh well mine is so much better than a few fake images of being in films and stuff!
