Bloke Trying To Sell His Skoda Is Being Flooded With Offers From ‘Celebrities’
Selling anything online can be a bit of a nightmare and as a general rule, the bigger the item, the bigger the nightmare. Recently, I’ve been trying to get rid of a flat screen TV and although the ad states the price and location, over 50 tyre kickers have been in touch to enquire about it (with no real intention of buying it).
Still, it could be worse. I could be this lad in the UK who’s trying to part ways with his motor but is being inundated with enquiries from people who are pretending to be A-list celebrities and TV characters…
Johnny Delaney, from Leeds, has been trying to sell his 2002 Skoda through Auto Trader for the very reasonable sum of £550 but the first response he got was from someone pretending to be the iconic Del Boy…
They wrote: “Au Revoir Johnny me old mucka. I am gonna level with ya me old son, Boycie has tucked me up on a motor and I am in right lumber. Some of the boys down the Nags Head told me that you were selling a cushty little motor so I thought je sus je reste !!”
In no time at all, hilarious messages started streaming in: a bewildered Johnny received enquiries from Matt Le Blanc, Lewis Hamilton, Sir Michael Caine, and Brian May to name a few.
He even got one from the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un and one from the president of the United States, the one and only Donald Drumph!
Johnny doesn’t have a clue who keeps posting the messages, and although he found it funny at first, the joke’s wearing a bit thin for the lad who just wants to sell his bloody car.
“I do find the messages amusing but it is going on a bit long now and I keep thinking ‘I need to sell this car’,” he said.
I reckon this extra exposure might be just what he needs in order to get it sold. Either that or more people will pile in, pretending to be celebrities.
And on a side note, if anyone is looking for a high-quality flat screen TV for a very reasonable price, get in touch. Unless you’re a famous person, in which case you can fu*k right off.
