Adweek’s Tim Nudd did a Q-and-A with the man who posted this “jaw-dropping homemade ad” for his Toyota Camry, which unfortunately has been removed from Craigslist. Nudd asks Nate Walsh:
Are you bummed it’s been flagged for removal on Craigslist?
I was at the time, but it’s taken on such a weird life of its own at this point — I’ve seen it on Pinterest, Jezebel, Jalopnik and Reddit, among other places — that I’m not really fussed at this point. I’m just glad people are enjoying it. The Internet can be a pretty snarky place (to put it lightly), but everyone has been amazingly positive and complimentary, which is a miracle in itself.
I am slightly worried, though, that the person who flagged the ad may have been one of the exes from the chart included in the ad, in which case she has to be blowing a gasket about the amount of attention it’s managed to get since. So, you know, no darkened alleys for me for a while.
