Local News

BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD)- Patrick Fellows, a father, writer, and business owner turned to Facebook when he needed to sell his old mini van in hopes to use that money to buy his 16 year-old a car.

Fellows mini van reached the attention of 5.3 thousand Facebook users and counting. But, it’s not the mini van that make’s this story unique, it is Fellows advertisement.

Using his humor Fellow encouraged Facebook users to purchase the mini van. He wrote a lengthy ad explaining how this mini van will make parents lives easier.

FOR SALE: 2012 Honda Odyssey with all the sh** to make your life an effing breeze, and you, a better person. Seems too good to be true, you say? Well, grab your panties because your fortunes have changed. Ever have a kid under one arm, groceries, a purse, your phone and keys in the other hand and wonder how you’re going to not get mugged at Target?? Faster than you can say “OPEN SESAME” you hit the button and the doors open like some sort of Milf Millenium Falcon! Throw all that shit into the air, the purse lands on the passenger seat, the kid lands strapped in, the groceries all hang by the handles on the fancy little hooks, and you flip your beautiful hair around like an 80’s Prell commercial, while, “RUN THE WORLD” by Beyonce magically starts playing, loud, with authority.

Within minutes the Facebook post was full of comments of users appreciating Fellow’s humor and his phone flooded with offers.

Fellows sold the mini van in three hours.

“I’ve even gotten offers from Canada,” Fellows laughed. “A lot of people have been texting me to say thanks for making me laugh today.”

Men, don’t feel left out here. You too can sack up and buy yourself a rolling man cave/stabbin cabin, replete with plugs in the back to charge the batteries for your drills and what not. A fully functional DVD w/ two sets of headphones, means you can watch Gladiator or Caddyshack or whatever the eff on your next trip to Disney. Speaking of which, I’ve driven this thing to Disney twice and it never disappointed. I just pointed her in the right direction and BLAMMO, Happiest Place on Earth, here we come!, the Facebook post continued.

When Fellows is not coaching his high school cross country team or running his business, FreshJunkie, he spends his time writing.

With his Facebook ad gone viral, Fellow’s is receiving multiple advertising writing offers.

“It’s funny because I was just trying to figure out different ways to write more,” Fellows said. “It’s been over a week and I’m still getting text from all over the country.”

Fellow’s says he will continue to write more giddy humor on his blog here and might take upon some of his ad writing offers.
