A guy in Germany going by the username Der Juli released a video this week titled "für laura".
In the video, he explains that he recently broke up with a woman named Laura after a 12-year relationship.
And he apparently decided that Laura deserved half of the stuff they bought together over the years.
Like, literally half.
So in the video, he cuts a car in half.
But he didn't stop there, Der Juli divvied up all of their stuff and put it on eBay.
He's selling half of a laptop.
Half a bike.
Half of two different phones.
Half of a pretty decent-looking TV.
Which you could watch on half of this couch.
Half a bed.
Half a motorcycle helmet.
Even half a teddy bear.😕
And his final message to Laura?
So if you're looking for a bunch of halves of various things, they're currently being auctioned off for only a few euros.
It turns out all the cutting of things in half was actually part of a viral marketing stunt done to promote the German Lawyer's Information. It is unclear though, whether you can actually buy half a car on eBay.
