Filmmaker's Crazy Craigslist Ad For Used Nissan Results in Sale to Nissan
It's fun to see what pops up on Craigslist in terms of silly ads. Some people go to great lengths to sell old stuff. One such ad -- an unabashed parody of overly-bombastic car commercials -- for a 1996 Nissan Maxima, created by filmmaker Luke Aker, was good enough to get Nissan itself to by the car from Aker.
Of course, Nissan is just going to take the car and have it placed in one of those giant car crushers because, let's be honest, they don't really want the car. They just want the publicity surrounding the stunt.
Still, Aker got his old clunker sold and, to boot, got Nissan to donate $1,000 to Wounded Warrior Project so the transaction isn't all without merit.
@IkonikFilms Sorry you had to part with your Maxima, but glad we found it a good home! :)— Nissan (@NissanUSA) December 17, 2013
