A man has received a free Aston Martin after uploading a picture to his Facebook asking for one.

Well... kinda.

Hector Janse van Rensburg originally uploaded a photo to his Twitter captioned: "Good morning. Despite the alluring exploration of the male form combined with a strong brand placement, this is not a sponsored tweet.'

A bottle of Radox shower gel could be seen in the foreground of Hector's picture.

Radox UK later DM'd the lad, saying how much they liked the tweet and offered him a selection of 'goodies'.

They wrote: "We loved your tweet! As a thanks, we'd like to send you a package of Radox goodies.

"If you could kindly send us your name and delivery address, we'll have it sent your way!"

Hector then posted a follow-up photo of him posing in the bath once again, this time with the goodies in backdrop.

He then posed with a piece of paper covering the shampoos scrawled in a drawing of an Aston Martin. 'The one with the big vrooms,' requested.

Amazingly, Aston Martin then responded. Although it wasn't quite what Hector was going for.

Instead of dishing out a free car, the company suggested a toy model.

It comes after a lad made news after post the most retweeted tweet in the social media site's history, beating Ellen Degeneres' Oscars selfie.

Recently, another Twitter user @Abdinoorx2 tried to bag a free Mercedes Benz for free.

He originally messaged Mercedes-Benz US asking how many retweets he would need to get for some wheels at no cost. They replied: "20 million RT's and we'll talk..."

They came back to him with a picture of a shiny, black convertible claiming that they were 'clearing the road and handing it over'.

He even asked: "Do you need my information like address and stuff." Seriously? Are you fucking serious?

Then Mercedes decided the joke was over and mentioned that, surprisingly, the car had been 'delivered' right to his DMs.

@Abdinoorx2 has since criticised the car maker for their joke.

So much so, that he started posting the hashtag #BoycottMercedes in a bid to get supporters behind him.

And it appears that Mercedes is prone to doing this a bit.


One Twitter user tried a different car brand to see if they were all in cahoots.


I wonder which company's next?
