Kermit the $1 Scooter

Kermit the Scooter was sitting unloved and unused under my house for a couple of years. I finally decided it was time to let him go but I knew if I listed it on Trade Me as a normal listing it would become lost amongst all the other listings. I had to find a way to make it stand out from the pack. I decided to take a gamble and boost it’s profile a bit by making a quick little video that poked fun at some of it’s awesome features. It worked! The $1 reserve listing made Trade Me’s ‘Cool Auctions’, got over 12,000 views, 200 bids and sold for close to what I paid for it – despite it’s flaws!
