Visual Effects Artist Creates Breathtaking Trailer To Sell His Old Car

"Still here, still smart, still trendy, still sexy."

When it came to selling his beloved 1996 Suzuki Vitara, Eugene Romanovsky went full-on Hollywood.

The Israel-based visual effects artist, from Latvia, created an action movie-style trailer to promote the 21-year-old vehicle.

Via some wizard editing, he made it seem as if his “best friend for 10 years” was driving alongside dinosaurs, down snow-capped mountains and on clifftops.

He even placed it in a scene from “Mad Max: Fury Road.”

Romanovsky, 37, posted the breathtaking 2-minute promo to YouTube on April 12. It’s now garnered more than 3.2 million views.

Dozens of people from around the world inquired about buying the Suzuki, said Romanovsky, but none lived in Israel.

The funny thing is, the person who bought it didn’t see the movie. He saw the car on the street,” he told Israel21C.

Romanovsky said he was “surprised” at how viral his video went. “I did it actually for myself and maybe for close friends for fun,” he told HuffPost.
