ERIE, Colo. — A newspaper ad claimed a Colorado man was selling his house for Super Bowl tickets, but it turns out it’s just a joke.

KUSA reported that the ad was a prank between friends after they made bets on a recent football game.

Brian Lusk said he didn’t even know the ad for his home was in the paper until he got flooded with phone calls. Now, he said he just wants the calls to stop.

The ad claimed the 2,100 square-foot 3-bedroom home was for sale by the owner. It listed his phone number.

“Getting divorced: leaving her with nothing,” the ad read. “Will sell home for 2 tickets to the Super Bowl with airfare and lodging.”

Lusk now wants advice on how to get back at his friends for the prank.

The Carolina Panthers will take on the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50 Feb. 7 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.
