In an effort to reinvent the flea market, Goodby, Silverstein & Partners San Francisco has come up with a new multimedia campaign to remind consumers of eBay's archive of goods.
Comedians including Kevin Hart and Jim Gaffigan appear in several ads, explaining the benefits of using eBay to source low-cost goods and to sell off items people have no use for, such as unwanted Christmas presents.
The campaign features the tagline "Come to think of it, eBay" to tell people that the site should be their first port of call for online shopping.
The campaign also seeks to remind consumers that eBay not only sells used products, but new and designer items as well.
The work is supported by magazine ads, digital vignettes and three rich-media executions focusing on eBay's core categories - clothes, home and garden, and technological products.

Del Campo Nazca Saatchi & Saatchi presents the ultimate kiss in this latest spot for Topline Kiss chewing gum.
A girl, clearly having just escaped from her wedding, runs to meet her lover in the middle of a desert where they cling together in a passionate embrace.
The kiss becomes "unbreakable", despite various forces trying to break them apart.
Her family arrive and attempt to pull them apart, but fail. A further succession of foiled attempts to part their lips, including a tug-of-war and a bomb, play out while the young couple remain lip-locked.
The campaign aims to demonstrate the electrifying taste experience of Topline Kiss gum.
