Short Version, woman decides to sell her 96 Honda, her boyfriend who works for a video production company made a "new car style commercial" for it.
Ebay shut down the original sale, for "irregular bidding" or some such after the bidding made it to (iirc) $150,000.00
back up for sale:

That is a great used car ad laugh .
An ad I saw a while ago for a 1964 Ford Galaxy wagon (with the fake wood on the sides)...
"Aparently, 'Do whatever the (h_e_double hockey sticks) you want', doesn't mean what I thought it did. Must sell."

A few years ago in a VW commercial the guy wants to reserve the car, so he licks the door handle.

Not sure why they would bid up 150k. Seems like a stunt to get EVEN MORE YouTube clicks. Kinda idiotic. People seem to have too much time on their hands.

The car is worth $1,500 + whatever you feel the ad is worth to you as a memory, if you buy the car.

That ad did absolutely nothing. All that production level but the content was terrible and amateur.

Like those that hang out on forums? And run all over town to get oil at .25 cents a quart?

The travesty!

Pouring coffee in the front seat? Sitting on the hood with your boots on? Not exactly the type of person I'd buy a car from. I'll pass.

Shill bidding.

Man brings back so many memories, from the sound of the engine starting, right down to the cassette to MP3 converter.

I'd love to meet the people who bit it up to $150K, I have a house I'd like to sell to them.

I really like it.
That gentleman has potential!!
Should have been a waiver to this commercial performed by a professional, do not attempt this while driving.
