Words escape me... can someone explain this?

First I want to comment on how well this video was done. It's so slick and polished the creator deserves so much recognition and props!

https://youtu.be/4KlNeiY4Rf4


Next, I'm floored at the price this car is getting on eBay!
https://www.ebay.com/itm/1996-Honda-...53.m1438.l2649

I was literally on the phone yesterday with Hagerty discussing insurance for my 93SE which BTW won't be eligible until next September since that is when it was first registered. And without any "comps" that come close to mine they best guessed it at about $10k.

What's unbelievable to me is this '96 Accord, while in nice shape has some serious cosmetic issues and unbelievably is already at $20,600.00 with more than 5 days to go!

Can someone tell me what I'm missing here!?

You'll need a viral commercial on social media for it to be successful.

"Once the video was finally done, he posted it on Reddit, thinking nothing would happen. "I checked back an hour later and it had like 70 up votes," he said. "It was really fun, and luckily Chris and I were both not busy and we both grabbed pizza. We were on the local news here yesterday."

For the record, Lanman doesn't think many of the larger bids, which had climbed past $32,000 as of Friday, are legit. "It would be crazy if we could by a new Honda Accord with old-Honda sale money," he said."

e-bay relisted it after they convinced them it wasn't a fraud.
now it climbed back up to over 5,000. It might not be 30,000 but that is still a good price for a old accord. As of this morning there are 3 days left on the auction.
This is all from a silly viral video which they are probably making money off of on youtube.
The video has over 4,000,000 views.

The funny thing is, I think 4mil views are worth a few thousand.
