Lars von Trier Becomes World’s Most Ominous eBay Seller

Want to buy a mobile home? Flight-averse auteur Lars von Trier is selling his on eBay, and it can be yours if you want something that he may have conceived Antichrist's testicle-smashing sequence in. The vehicle is a standard issue 1992 Dethleffs Advange (such an inviting name!) and to really entice buyers, von Trier supplied this quote to the listing, "Looking forward to get rid of the smell of Diesel. Hope a potential buyer likes this smell, as Diesel has been poured over the floor several times." Totally normal. Buy it now and hope for more creepy items to appear in von Trier's virtual garage sale, including a PAL copy of Super Mario 2 haunted by a sexually abusive demon, and a cute Beanie Baby (Quackers the Duck, the best one) clutched by his cousin while she was brutally raped.
