‘Just Sold My Car’ is the latest TV and radio campaign from webuyanycar. Its mission is to spread the word about just how simple it is to sell your car with us – and capture the feelgood vibes experienced by thousands of our customers across the UK the moment they learn that they’ve sold their car!
The ‘Just Sold My Car’ campaign is now airing on TV - and features a catchy reimagining of ‘Friday’ by Riton and Nightcrawlers, which captures that ‘Just Sold My Car’ feeling perfectly.
If you haven’t seen it yet – or can’t resist having a dance to it one more time, you can check it out below…
Earlier this year, we decided on the theme for our latest TV and radio ad campaign: a celebration of that air-punching moment when you’ve sold your car - and the cash is on its way!
We knew that the soundtrack had to be instantly recognisable and catchy enough to get everyone dancing in their living rooms. After trawling through our playlists, we decided that Riton and Nightcrawlers’ ‘Friday’ captured the vibe perfectly – it just needed reworking to convey our message. Our studio team did us proud and quickly turned around a fresh take on ‘Friday’ (featuring our own lyrical twist), which can be heard throughout our TV and radio ads.
We had our second ‘Eureka’ moment when we remembered who made ‘Friday’ such a hit in the first place - Mufasa (a.k.a. Jeff Obeng). No other star can match the energy, humour and dancing swagger of the man behind the ‘Friday dance’ – which is precisely why we recruited him to launch our campaign.
However, with this campaign, we also wanted to shine the spotlight on our customers - the everyday superstars who make the car-buying world go round.
To pay tribute to our customer base, who hail from all demographics and drive every car model you could imagine, we created five relatable shorts, featuring true-to-life characters navigating the car-selling process - and reaching their own ‘Just Sold My Car’ moments!
The other stars of our campaign include:

In this lively ad, we meet a busy family (mum, Naomi, dad, Chris – and the kids, Amber and Lisa) who are visiting their local webuyanycar branch. With their cheeky dog, ‘Barley’ on board, the family are struggling for room in their standard hatchback. Luckily, their space shortage woes will soon be over …
“It only took 30 seconds to get a quote!” says Naomi.
“What does that mean?”, asks Amber.
“We’re getting a bigger car!” Chris exclaims.
The whole family (including ‘Barley’) can’t resist celebrating there and then; Naomi, Amber and Lisa even break into dance!
It all started when Naomi got a 30-second quote from webuyanycar.com.

In this fun-packed ad, we join Pete and Jane, a cheerful couple who have driven down to their local webuyanycar branch. Pete can’t quite believe how easy it was to sell their car - and recounts the ‘3 simple steps’ from their car-selling journey:
First, Pete got a 30-second valuation for his car by visiting webuyanycar.com and entering his reg number and mileage!
Next, after booking an appointment, Pete and Jane made the 13-minute drive to their nearest webuyanycar branch.
Following a quick in-person valuation with our friendly buyers, Pete sold the car – and the cash was sent to his bank account on the very same day!
Pete has a spring in his step (and even busts a few impressive dance moves) as he hands his keys to our buyer.

In this upbeat ad, we meet Rebecca, a high-achiever who is ready to make the switch to a brand-new car. At first, Rebecca thought part-exchanging at her local dealership might be the way to go, but didn’t want to rush into anything before she had considered all her options.
A quick online search led her to webuyanycar, which turned out to be a real game-changer.
First, Rebecca entered her reg number and mileage to get a quote in under 30 seconds. The price was right, so she made an appointment and drove to her local branch with her friend in tow. Finally, she sold her car to one of our friendly buyers at a price she loved.
Now, after realising the sale’s in the bag - and the money’s on the way to her bank, Rebecca can’t resist throwing a few shapes!
So, if like Rebecca, you’re ready to sell your motor, make sure you get a free car valuation from webuyanycar before committing. You just might be glad you did!
“Webuyanycar would never buy a car this flash, would they?”
In this feelgood ad, we join Mark and his friend, Dave, who doubts that that their local webuyanycar team would buy Mark’s luxury car.
“Mate, they literally buy any car!” exclaims Mark.
He then reveals that he has in fact sold his prestige motor at a great price to webuyanyanycar through the medium of song and dance. Our campaign has featured some top-notch choreography, but we think you’ll agree, Mark’s moves are flippin’ amazing!
