eBay's competitor advertises on eBay (guerrilla style), eBay's competitor in Belgium, has just launched an online guerrilla campaign on eBay itself. Basically the agency, snow by LG&F;, came up with the idea of selling some items on eBay complete with pictures saying "Sorry, already sold on".

Check out the snowboard, the lamp or this motorbike. Hurry up if you want to see the campaign in action, since eBay will be probably remove it sooooooon, no wonder why :-).

Yes, the pages have been already removed, but here I've saved a screenshot of a page: click on the image below to enlarge it.

hahaha, that's what I call a dared guerilla action! And if you know that LG&F; and mortierbrigade are one of the most creative agencies in Belgium, you can be sure they (=mortierbrigade) will respond by another funny action :-)

That's one of those marketing efforts that you just have to sit back and giggle. I can't wholly subscribe to the malicious nature of the campaign, but it does fit in a unique category -- stellar.
