Letgo, a fast-growing app where people can buy and sell locally, is preaching “less stuff, more living” in its ‘Live and letgo’ campaign.

The aim is to show how simple it is to transform everything you don’t need around your home into things, experiences and adventures that move you. With help from Droga5 and Adult Swim stars Tim & Eric (comedians Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim), letgo is helping Americans rethink their unhealthy relationships with their extra stuff. The comedy duo directed letgo’s three new ads in their signature oddly endearing style.

In one, a guy hanging with his friends tries to buy a round of drinks with a lawnmower. The bartender points to a sign that says “No lawnmowers, money only” and suggests the guy sell it on letgo. Another finds a family trying to barter a piano for a vacation stay while a third sees a man crash through a jewelry store window as he tries to trade his pickup truck for a diamond ring.
