eBayer lays claim to net's dullest video

For sale: one washing machine, working...

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Forget YouTube: eBay is the hip place to be if you want no-holds-barred video entertainment, as the vendor of this NEFF Washing Machine can prove:

For sale: one washing machine

WTF, we hear you cry? An eBay washing machine auction challenging the mighty home of all that is great and good in homegrown visual entertainment? Have you gone mad?

Well, try this: "The machine works fine (Fills/Empties and Spins). Previously listed as not working but I have replaced the Carbon Bushes with brand new ones and the machine is 100% working (have video footage if required)."

Terrific. If the seller were Damian Hurst, then Charles Saatchi would right now be deploying his special chequebook with the extra-long cash amount field reserved for buying the Britart luminary's more challenging works. Suggestion for the NEFF vendor: stick a label on your VHS tape calling it "The Unbearable Lightness of Persil" and get yourself straight down to the ICA. ®
