Last week filmmaker Max Lanman released a commercial he produced for his girlfriend's 1996 Honda Accord that went absolutely viral. Max listed the used car on eBay and you wouldn't believe the bids it received. The winning bid was $150,000 and unfortunately, someone in eBay's fraud department didn't know the whole story and canceled the auction. While that must have been frustrating for Max and his girlfriend Carrie, someone else is interested in the car.

The folks over at CarMax got creative and made a commercial in the form of a "we're interested" message. It's quite clever, and there's a happy update to this story! Max’s fiancé officially accepted CarMax's video offer to buy Greenie (and a few other items!) for $20,000. The cat is staying with the couple, but CarMax generously donated an additional $5,000 to Kitten Rescue, a local nonprofit in Los Angeles.
