May 10 (UPI) -- An Israeli special effects artist put his expertise to good use in creating an epic advertisement for his used car that includes footage from Jurassic Park and Mad Max.
Eugene Romanovsky, a visual effects artist for Tel Aviv firm Gravity, said he spent his free time over the course of about three weeks creating the "#BuyMyVitara" YouTube video, which advertised his 1996 Suzuki Vitara SUV -- known as the Suzuki Sidekick in the United States.
"#BuyMyVitara -- Suzuki Vitara '96 for sale," Romanovsky wrote in the video's description. "With deep sorrow selling my little beast..."
The video features some facts about the vehicle, such as Romanovsky owning it for 10 years, before showing footage of him taking the SUV for a spin off-road.
The footage continues to feature facts about work performed on the vehicle as it encounters wild animals and scenes from films including Jurassic Park and Mad Max: Fury Road.
"It needs your love," text at the end of the video reads, "and maybe some paint."
Romanovsky told Israel21c the video led to inquiries from as far away as the United States and Argentina, but he ended up selling the vehicle in Israel, to someone who wasn't even aware of its viral fame.
"The funny thing is, the person who bought it didn't see the movie. He saw the car on the street," Romanovsky said.
