Poor Lena Dunham. The star of HBO’s critically-acclaimed Girls just can’t go one day without being the subject of some kind of discussion. Two weeks ago, it was some reporter’s question about her constant nudity. Last week, it was Jezebel’s offer to buy her untouched photos from Vogue for $10,000 to prove a point about something. And now it’s a Craigslist ad for a couch for sale in Brooklyn. Yep, poor Lena Dunham, she just can’t get a moment of privacy anymore.
As for that sweet deal on a couch, this week’s most delightful Craiglist ad indeed invokes the actress who plays Hannah Horvath, as this seller very humorously compares his or her couch to Dunham.
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.
Clever sales pitches aside, $200 for a couch that is supposedly less than two years old is a pretty damn good deal, as long as the seller didn’t fill it with human or animal blood at some point. And even if it was filled with human blood, that would just make it even more comparable to Dunham. Well done, Brooklyn Craigslisters.
