Lena Dunham Tries To Help Man Sell “Lena Dunham Of Couches” On Craigslist
A New York man, Mickey Dwyer, wanted to sell his couch, but for him a Craigslist ad featuring the usual good price and crappy picture wasn't enough. He needed more. He needed something to make this couch stand out from all the other possibly fornicated-on couches of Brooklyn Craigslist and what he decided on was brilliant. Dwyer decided to call his sofa "the Lena Dunham of couches" and eventually Dunham ended up trying to help him sell it.
The title of Dwyer's Craigslist ad (which is currently still listed) is "Just A Very Real and Relatable Couch - $200." The hilarious post reads,
Apparently humor doesn't sell couches anymore, because no one took him up on the offer. Dwyer then turned to Twitter, as one does, and asked Lena Dunham for help.
And then Lena Dunham retweeted him and the couch was instantly sold!
Just kidding. Dunham did retweet Dywer, but it didn't end up helping. According to his Twitter, Dwyer ended up selling the "classy beautiful sexy REAL" sofa to someone who didn't even know about the Dunham retweet.
