Savagely honest advert for used Toyota Corolla has people in tears
"You want a car that gets the job done?" begins the car advert.
It’s a listing for a Toyota Corolla, and it’s entertaining for all its honesty.
"You want a car that’s hassle free? You want a car that literally no one will ever compliment you on? Well look no further."
The ad, for a 1999 model of the popular motor, recently appeared on Craigslist. It was shared on Twitter by Brendan Tokarski , who clearly thought it should be read by more people.
While the seller admits the Toyota Corolla won’t make your driveway look exciting, he does manage to make it enticing.
"Let’s talk about features," the listing, in Houston, Texas, continues.
"Bluetooth: nope. Sunroof: nope. Fancy wheels: nope. Rear view camera: nope… but it’s got a transparent rear window and you have a f***** neck that can turn."
The writer adds: "Let me tell you a story. One day my Corolla started making a strange sound. I didn’t give a s*** and ignored it. It went away. The end."
He goes onto explain the car could be driven off a bridge, into a river, and still survive. And claims the motor could run on Nutella and still run smoothly.
"The car will outlive you, it will outlive your child," the advert reads.
Also mentioned is the fact the car is old enough to vote and consent to sex. Not that it should do either of those things.
There are numerous other amusing notes in the Craigslist advert. It all gets a little surreal later on.
Apparently, the car’s favourite food is spaghetti, its favourite TV show is Alf, and it likes listening to Bush and the Gin Blossoms. Whoever they are.
"When I ran the CarFax for this car, I got back a single piece of paper that said, "It’s a Corolla. It’s fine."
Lots of people have been loving the ad. There are a lot of Toyota Corolla fans out there – it turns out it really is a reliable bit of engineering. Even if it is boring.
Who said practicality had to be inspiring? Let’s not forget the Top Gear episode in which they attempt to destroy a Toyota pickup. It proved difficult.
And, as you’ll have noticed, the ad has gone now. Maybe the bloke found a buyer. Or (more likely, we feel), he realised he wouldn’t be able to part with his beloved set of wheels.
