Mickey Dwyer, an apparent fan of the HBO comedy, listed his couch for sale on Craigslist, referring to the “very real and relatable couch” as “the Lena Dunham of couches.” After his humorous ad apparently didn’t get enough attention, he took to Twitter to ask Dunham herself for a little support.
“@lenadunham Will you help me sell my couch?” Dwyer tweets. “I have less followers than you and need it outta here. Thanks. #couch.”
And what do you know, Dunham retweeted Dwyer. Turns out, Dunham’s support just may have helped. Dwyer tweets that he was able to rid himself of the couch.
Here’s the ad’s full text, laden with “Girls” references:
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?
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.
