A Moive Based on a Classified Ad

Many years ago, a prankster placed the ad above in a local newspaper. Now, “Safety Not Guaranteed” is a movie based on this bizarre classified ad. Since the ad was posted online, a sub-culture grew into a full mythology. I hope Hollywood stays true to the glory of the Internet. The official trailer for the movie is not as epic as the trailer someone made years ago for a fictional movie – all based on this exact ad.

“The original classified ad upon which the film is based first appeared in Backwoods Home Magazine in 1997. It was written as last-minute filler by John Silveira, an employee of the magazine”
