One company’s pizza delivery vehicle turned into one man’s treasure after a YouTuber by the name of Samcrac purchased a wrecked Domino’s DXP delivery vehicle. As you may or may not know, the DXP is based on the Chevrolet Spark with a pizza warming oven onboard.
Samcrac purchased the vehicle from an auction and he claims the process was totally legal with all the appropriate paperwork. An unnamed entity, presumably Domino’s, then contacted the man and threatened legal action.
The entity said the man was violating trademark laws as he published videos of himself rebuilding the car on YouTube. Samcrac reviewed the guidelines and trademark information and felt he’d done nothing wrong. It’s worth noting YouTube has the power to remove videos over trademark infringement, but the video service did not take his videos down either.
Later, without offering a specific timeline, another individual approached him with an offer to purchase the car. When he refused, the “individual,” again, most likely Domino’s, threatened legal action if he did not sell the car. Needless to say, he didn’t sell.
Since then, he started a GoFundMe campaign to help with legal fees, but he’s since ended the campaign after disclosing he’s received assistance with legal matters. It’s unclear why Domino’s allegedly wants the car off of social media so badly, but it seems like the YouTuber will ultimately win his case.
