A teen from Syracuse, New York, experienced a serious ‘Dude, Where’s My Car?’ moment in Toronto last weekend.
Gavin Strickland took a trip over the Canadian border to see Metallica play at Rogers Centre on Sunday. But Strickland seemed to have gone a little too hard at the concert because after the show he couldn’t find his car.
All Strickland remembered was that he parked his Nissan Versa on the first floor of a random indoor parking garage located two miles away from the arena.
That’s when his parents came to the rescue and decided to send out a message on Toronto Craigslist to see if anyone could find the car.
“Our doofy son parked the car indoor parking garage, in the first floor (slightly lower / basement level) but that garage cannot now be located…. It is near a Starbucks where there is some construction going on,” Strickland’s parents wrote in the post.
“Also nearby is allegedly a strange spiral outdoor sculpture, and possibly a bank- maybe RBC? The car has US Florida license plates, a small Canadian flag affixed to the door frame, and a Bernie Sanders bumper sticker. ”
Turns out the teen’s parents made the right move because the post has been updated and the car has been found.
All we can say is thank goodness for Craiglist.
