The Craigslist ad that sold a 1996 Nissan Maxima… To Nissan

Although Ikonic Films probably intended to launch a viral video with their advertisement for a worn-out 1996 Nissan Maxima, chances are they couldn’t have guessed Nissan would step up with an offer to buy it.  Thanks to the vulture-like draw of successful viral marketing, that’s exactly what happened.  Complementing the video, which really deserves the cinematic designation of being a “short film”, a masterfully crafted Craigslist ad inadvertently proved the punch line to its own joke:  This “pavement-yacht” may actually have appreciated in value over the years.
