Is This ‘Free’ N64 The Best Deal Ever? There’s Only One Catch.

Few people reading this wouldn’t hesitate at the chance to earn a working N64 with games, but what would you do in order to get it?  Sure, “trade” isn’t free, but is there a non-monetary price you could put on two original controllers and the chance to finally beat Super Mario 64 now that your fine motor skills have evolved to their final form?

One enterprising person with an N64 they no longer want has asked that exact question. That’s why they posted this ad on Craigslist, asking you to give him a ring. And then a growl:

It seems that someone’s either already claimed the N64 or the posted severely underestimated the amount of people willing to call and roar into a stranger’s phone, but the ad is sadly gone. I can’t tell you how sad that makes me, because I would’ve called again and again until I finally won that thing. You don’t want to know what I’d do for a Klondike Bar.

[Editorial Note: Obviously the phone number provided is a friend or spouse to the person who posted this offer, and that friend or spouse spent their April Fools’ Day being inundated with Chewbacca roars. It’s a classic prank.]
