Can You Imagine If Slash Rocked Up To Check Out Your Gumtree Listing?
Well for a bunch of folks in the US, that basically happened. Late Night host Conan O’Brien enlisted legendary Guns N’ Roses axeman Slash to accompany him to check out a bunch of Craiglist advertisements for guitar stuff (basically America’s Gumtree), taking the idea of having an expert with you when you’re buying second-hand gear to a whole new level.
Adding to the hilarity of the whole thing is the fact that a fair whack of the sellers they visit are completely unfazed by the world famous pair turning up to check out their items and the whole thing serves as yet another reminder that when you buy things off internet classifieds, you’re gonna meet some proper weirdos. Enjoy.
