Spoof Ad For Used Car Goes Viral

  Spoof Ad For Used Car Goes Viral The car featured in the ad is a used 1996 model with 141,095 miles on the odometer and a $499 price tag. However, bids on eBay currently stand at $100,000 after the commercial went viral. Speaking to the BBC, the creator of the ad, Lanman said: "The inspiration to make the ad came while my girlfriend Carrie and I were driving up the coast on Highway 1, heading to Big Sur to go camping.""It dawned on me that it would be really funny to film a car commercial for a really crappy car against such a gorgeous backdrop," he added.Lanman also stated it was "absolutely insane" to see the spoof ad go viral.

LeBron James has already made upward of $200 million in his NBA playing career, and many millions more in endorsements. He has a lifetime contract with Nike that reportedly pays him more than $30 million per year. He owns his own production company, and a minority stake in Premier League powerhouse Liverpool. His playing days don't appear anywhere close to over, but he's already set up extremely well for retirement.

Like Michael Jordan before him, James' post-career years seem destined to include ownership of an NBA franchise; James himself has said that's part of his plan. It would make sense for that team to be his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers, who he has almost single-handedly dragged to prominence over 11 seasons.

LeBron backpedals after posting cryptic Arthur meme

  LeBron backpedals after posting cryptic Arthur meme LeBron James appears to have a different understanding of the Arthur's fist meme than the rest of the world. After posting the meme - which features the closed fist of animated aardvark Arthur of the eponymous children's show - on Instagram on Monday, James clarified the sentiment of the post with a follow-up:

C’est la vie LeBron . It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy, one that could result in a relatively quiet trade deadline for the Cavs and with Gilbert likely living to regret the ill-advised tact he took – again. Cleveland Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman (L) and owner Dan Gilbert (R)

Gallery: Cavaliers LeBron James makes history by being the youngest NBA player to reach 30,000 points. Then four years later, they decided to try it again -- sort of year-to-year. Last week, ESPN's Stephen A. Smith mentioned in passing that Dan Gilbert wants to sell the Cavs .

But, as much as James - and likely, the people of Cleveland - would welcome that, a lot of pieces would have to fall into place for it to happen, including the willingness of current owner Dan Gilbert to sell at least a portion of his majority stake.

"To be an owner of any team would be crazy," James told The Athletic's Jason Lloyd. "If this thing opened up and I'm in a position financially, and I've got the right team around me, obviously. But who's to say Dan will (sell)? I've always kept it just player/owner at this point. I guess once I come down to that point, if the conversation needed to be had, I'll have it. But I don't have it right now."

If and when it does come time to have the conversation, James may be a victim of his own success. His spectacular play has helped significantly boost the valuation of the Cavs - Gilbert bought the team for $375 million back in 2005.

LeBron not concerned with his all-time ranking: 'It's barbershop talk'

  LeBron not concerned with his all-time ranking: 'It's barbershop talk' LeBron James will go down as one of the best players of all time - if not the best player ever - when his career is over. For now, The King is concentrating on maximizing the time he has left in the game, and paying no mind to debates over his legacy. "Where they rank me, who I'm better than,For now, The King is concentrating on maximizing the time he has left in the game, and paying no mind to debates over his legacy.

Dan Gilbert , the Cavs ’ owner, can appeal to LeBron 's sentiments for northeast Ohio. Both would be relevant considerations if Gilbert contracted to James the right to buy the Cavs . First consider Section 11 of Article XXIX of the CBA.

The Houston Rockets, the most recent NBA franchise to be sold, went for $2.2 billion.

"I know how much the team cost when he bought it," James said. "And I know how much it's worth now - over $1 billion if he wanted it."
