Mint Green Ford Focus Best Ebay Ad Ever.

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.

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

Ford Focus If The Engine Dies

Ford Focus Shark

Ford Focus Time Machine

Ford Focus Tortoise Shell

Ford Focus X Wing


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.

    Edit

    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.

    you see at the bottom of the image it has

    View: 1326x11954

    in blue you click on that and it gives you the full size image
    - zebidybob September 10, 2011, 11:16 pm
    Well if you are going to click a link anyway you may aswell just click the link to the actual ebay page.
    - TryThat September 10, 2011, 11:38 pm
    I said I had saved it because the ebay link won't be there forever.
    - zebidybob September 10, 2011, 11:48 pm
    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.
    - TryThat September 10, 2011, 11:51 pm
    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.
    - zebidybob September 11, 2011, 12:22 am
    I never said you had to remove the image...

    Excellent post +3

    Why thank you.
    - TryThat September 10, 2011, 3:28 pm
    Hope you dont mind dude, but the post was so funny I have stolen it for my web page :)
    - bigredkev September 10, 2011, 3:59 pm
    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 ;)
    - TryThat September 10, 2011, 4:04 pm
    I have of course credited to the post to you
    - bigredkev September 10, 2011, 4:27 pm
    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!
    - TryThat September 10, 2011, 4:36 pm
    Click on the 'via' link at the bottom and all should become clear :)
    - bigredkev September 10, 2011, 4:39 pm
    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
    - TryThat September 10, 2011, 4:43 pm
    Ah I was probably still editing the post. Hope it drives some traffic back to your excellent post and of course some more points :)
    - bigredkev September 10, 2011, 4:49 pm
    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!
