Dad Pranks Cheeky Car Buyer By Getting Him To Pose With Dog Food On Head
dad flogging his car was stunned when a potential buyer asked if he could pay in £50 ($60) a week instalments - so pranked the gullible LAD into posing with dog food on his head.
John Jeffrey took to Facebook to sell his 2007 Volkswagen Golf GT and listed the bright red motor for £2,650 ($3,200). Some would say this is a steal - if you've got the dollar, that is.
However he was gobsmacked when a potential buyer asked if he could drive off with the vehicle that night, but swore 'on his gran's ashes' that he would pay him £50 a week for it. Sounds legit.
Finding the request 'absolutely ridiculous', John decided to lead the fella on and agreed, but suggested that he send a 'random picture' on his request to prove he was not a scam.
The 37-year-old mechanic was left in stitches when he managed to talk the polite but nonplussed buyer into posing with a dog treat on his head and then a spanner.
Sharing the entire hilarious message exchange on social media, John's post has already racked up more than 12,000 reactions and 10,000 shares.
John, from Dundee, Scotland, said: "I was just selling my car and he asked if I did finance which I found absolutely ridiculous.
"So initially I just kept on going and I thought at any stage he's going to find out and know that this is obviously just a joke.
"But he kept on coming back with more and more and gold so I just kept it coming."
John continued: "When I asked him for that silly picture I thought that was definitely the point he was going to say no and he came back and sent those pictures."
John added: "I think after I posted it it went viral so quickly and he was getting tagged on it left, right and centre, so he just left the conversation and just vanished.
"When he asked if I do finance I was just laughing and when I got the pictures I was on the floor."
In the hilarious exchange, John originally suggested that the young man should pose with a fork and spoon on his head, but when he is unable to find one he ends up using the dog treat.
Well, one thing's for sure - this guy really wanted a 2007 Volkswagen Golf GT. Maybe a little too much.
