Some guy who likes Girls needed to sell a couch in Brooklyn on Tuesday. So he posted a picture of his couch on Craigslist, comparing the giant piece of furniture to the perpetually nude Lena Dunham. Because if you're going to buy a used couch on Craigslist from some guy in Gowanus, it's best that it resemble a famous person you've never met.
But while the couch may or may not be similar to Dunham, the insufferable ad sure is:
Selling a classy beautiful sexy REAL and relatable couch that's comfortable. This is basically the Lena Dunham of couches. This is just..like a couch I don't know why everything needs a label like we're fruit or something and you just have to pick them off or sometimes you swallow them and don't even notice.
Is it OKAY for us to talk about a regular and normal couch being sexy? Can we recognize that?
It's a real couch being a real couch and we don't see much of that in living rooms. Finally, a couch that is just like a couch you know or grew up with but it's new and it's okay for this couch to be pretty and sexual and everyone doesn't have to freak out about it. I think that couches get stuck in a vortex of comfort vs. sexuality and it's all just...life. And we need to get over it.
$200 it's yours. Got it Macy's for over $800 less than two years ago.
Soon after putting the ad on Craigslist, Mickey Dwyer, the poster, reached out to Dunham on Twitter, asking for help getting rid of microfiber Dunham clone:

And what do you know? Dunham retweeted Dwyer's request because that's just what a sexy, regular couch would do.
Lena Dunham, ladies and gentlemen! Saving the children and couches of Brooklyn, one RT at a time.
No word yet on whether or not the couch has sold, but there's always a chance prospective buyers could see the couch in person and decide they aren't into it. Warning: this very REAL and very sexy couch might get defensive and angry if this happens. Please be careful.
