No One Wanted This Canadian Guy's Used Car So He Made An Epic Commercial For It

Complete with windshield wipers ~and~ and windshield.

This is Rob Comeau, a 25-year-old dude in Newmarket, Ontario, who's been trying to peddle a 2010 Nissan Altima on Craigslist and Kijiji for what feels like an eternity.

So Comeau did what any person with product to move would do: he made a hotfire commercial complete with dramatic shots and even more dramatic voiceover work.

It probably helps that Comeau is a filmmaker and had a hand from his buddy Chris Hau, a Toronto-based producer.

"I was telling him I was trying to sell my car and Craigslist and Kijiji weren’t working," Comeau told BuzzFeed Canada. "So he said hey, let’s make a video for it."

It's a hilariously perfect homage to every car commercial you've ever seen, complete with sweeping overhead shots.

And a scenic drive through the woods.

But the voiceover is by far the best part. Comeau and Hau hired a professional voice actor to describe the used car's "four rubber wheels for maximum traction" and "gas input and output."

"It even comes with windshield wipers — with a windshield for them to wipe."

''And some sort of compartment."

"We wanted to mix really cool epic shots with comedy," said Comeau.And all of it could be yours for $12,499 (or best offer).

The full video, posted by Hau on Facebook, now has more than 100,000 views and Comeau is finally getting some interested buyers. And that's what really matters here.

As much as this project is a nice addition to their portfolios, Comeau really does want the damn thing gone.

"I’m actually trying to sell. It’s been over a year," he said. "When I do sell it and get a new car we’re probably going to make a new video to thank everyone."
