eBay Commercials Coming to Let You Know "It's Not Your Mother's eBay Anymore"

EBay is kicking off a TV campaign in the next couple of months that is expected to help bring back consumers who may not have purchased anything on the site since the retailer was focused exclusively on auctioning off used goods.

Help let the world know just what sleazebay and failpal have become.
