Hilarious video leads to unexpected sale of 17-year-old car
Here's proof that a good pitch can sell anything ... even a 17-year-old Nissan with a hood that needs to be tied down with rope.Here's the video in question. You really need to watch this. Really.
Luke Aker created a video to help sell his not-so-gently used 1996 Maxima. But rather than just posting a regular old Craigslist ad with boring photos of the engine, trunk and odometer, Aker decided to create an ad in the style of a pretentious luxury car commercial with soft lighting, deep voice-over and analogies to humankind's greatest achievements.
"...It will get you from point A to point B. Most of the time" - LOVE IT.
The folks at Nissan got wind of the commercial and contacted Mr. Aker about the Maxima. They not only purchased it, they also made a $1,000 donation to the Wounded Warrior Project to boot. Well-played, Nissan USA.
We salute you, Luke Aker, a true man of genius.
That is all.
