Rad to the Power of Sick: The SuperRad Extreme 2000
Australian creative and Mac users’ wicked sick eBay auction description provides a slightly exaggerated entertainment spectacle:

“This is a max wicked sick BMX. It’s a Reliance Boomerang and it’s done heaps of maximum extreme stunts. I have mostly done stunts on this bike since forever. Once I did a boom gnarly stunt trick on it and a girl got pregnant just by watching my extremeness to the maxxxx. Some details about sickmax BMX: Comes with everything you see including: TOPS AS SUSPENSION REAR FORKS!! 2 x wheels 1 x seat I will even thrown my sick BMXing name for FREE – Wicked Styx. Has minor surface rust on handlebars and front forks (easily removed). More rust on rear forks (as shown in pics). Tyres hold air but are pretty old. Basically, it’s an old BMX, but it’s radness is still 100% in tact. Tricks I have done on this BMX: Endos – 234. Sick Wheelies – 687. Skids – 143,000. Bunny Hops – 2 (my brother dared me to do them, which I did because I’m Rad to the power of Sick). Flipouts – 28. Basically if you buy this bike you will instantly become a member to every club that was ever invented, worldwide, because you will be awesome. Pick up from Richmond in Melbourne. Throw your hands in the air like you just don’t mind.”
Even their Q&A is entertaining.
Quite an epic win; their auction received international coverage and the wicked sick BMX bike sold for a decent amount. If the auction lasted a bit longer it might have gotten even more bids.
Turns out that the SuperRad Extreme 2000 auction is an experiment with creative marketing, as their video explains The Wicked Sick Project:
They are Mac guys! The video shows them using Apple MacBook Pro and black MacBook. Cool stuff. Thanks for thinking different!
