Ebay Magic Moments : The Park 3D

Every now and then when trawling ebay for some good old fashioned Hong Kong goodness, something amazing reaches out and hits you in the face. Usually the fist is in the form of rampant lunacy, and guess what? Today, this very afternoon the fist of crazy found me with a knockout blow.

In 2003 director Andrew Lau made a horrible horror ( and I say horrible in the true sense of the word) movie called The Park, it made a tiny splash as it had a few sequences that were 3D before 3D became as popular/unpopular as it is today. Lau really should have known better but the film was released to almost universal derision before limping out on dvd.


So, you have the misfortune to have this pile of crap on dvd (I do, an impulse buy while in HK), do you

A. Throw it in the bin.

B. Try and donate it to charity.

C. Put it on ebay with a buy it now price tag of $250 ?

If you're ebayer 3dtvcorp you choose C, congratulations on easily one of the most stupid ebay listings I've ever seen. Here is the link to this madness, if you're seeing this too late to see the listing, here is a screencap.


If you're considering taking advantage of this once in a lifetime offer, wait! You can have my copy for $200.

What makes it even funnier is that it's still in print and can be had (if you're so inclined) for under $HK40 from most online retailers. I love how the American eBayers sell this stuff as rare...when it's not :)

Mart, the cheque's in the post.... I have to avoid eBay as I find it seriously addictive and I tend to buy a lot of stuff that I really don't need. From time to time I hear about people finding stuff on there for next-to-nothing prices but I've hardly ever got a bargain on eBay - in my experience sellers are way too savvy, and I've pretty much given up on finding an affordable pre-cert VHS of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, rare Throbbing Gristle tapes, Japanese laserdiscs (even though I still like to browse) and for once good sense has prevailed and I've decided not to start a Fangoria collection...

Eric, It really is one of the worst I've ever bought.

Michael, Does adding rare to a listing really make anyone more inclined to bid/buy? A little shopping research is important these days, especially where HK movies are concerned.

Wes, I don't take cheques anymore but Paypal will do!

I can't help myself where ebay is concerned, the thought of finding an elusive item is just too strong for me to resist. You're right though the bargains are few and far between these days, although one man's bargain etc...
