Man Creates World’s Most Exciting Ad for World’s Most Boring Car

You may not need a shitty 1999 Holden Barina hatchback but by the end of this ad, you’re going to want a shitty 1999 Holden Barina hatchback. In an attempt to sell his piece of crap car, David Johns created the slickdest ad he could for his aforementioned 1999 Holden Barina hatchback and put it on YouTube. Thus was born a 1 minute spot that would make even Michael Bay’s dick hard.

The video tells us “this is driving” and describes the vehicle as “Style redefined. Performance redefined. Luxury redefined.” Everything. Redefined. Some highlights of the car are that it’s only had one owner, comes with 10 months rego and includes matching seats. Freaking. Matching. Seats. How often do you get that in a used car? Rhetorical question. Never!

Not only did he create a video for the sale of his Barina, but he also made a website which could be slicker than the ad itself. You need to buy this car now!

Asked why he would spend all this time on what would at most be a $1,000 to $2,000 sale, Johns (who works for an ad agency) says “because I had the time and I just wanted to show off my skills.” He explained, “There’s so much competition for selling used cars, I wanted to do something clever.”

Clever it was because #buymybarina began trending on Twitter.

Some very tempting offers. But which one will Johns go with? Personally, I’d go with the cat one. I’ve always wanted to drown in pussy.
