An Australian man who said he sold a kidney to pay for a new Toyota Landcruiser has said he was only joking. 

Phillip Hill from Victoria posted on Facebook he had sold his kidney to buy his dream car. 

"When you need lots of money for a new cruiser, just sell a kidney. They give you $60000 in Thailand. I've got one left so all good," he posted next to a picture of him in a hospital gown and what looks like a human kidney. 

The post went viral, but after he became concerned people were actually going to sell a kidney to raise money he confessed. 

"G'day mate, it's a joke, please don't sell your body parts,"Hill wrote in response to one man who said he thought it was a good idea. 

Hill is a butcher and the kidney in the post was a lamb's kidney. The shots of him in hospital were from a previous visit.
