A House Or Champagne

19 Apr 2007

There’s a lucky guy named Jan. He works at an ad agency and has a beautiful wife and family. They live in a wonderful house and they’ve been having the time of their lives there. But.. the time has come to move on and now they’re selling the house… on YouTube. However, Jan’s ‘neighbors’ have noticed the clip on YouTube and decided to post their response… and now the bet is: if the response has more views than the original, Jan will buy bubbly wine for ‘the neighbors’. Other than that, it’s pretty cool to use YouTube to sell your house, but instead of showing just the house and the rooms and all that you add a story to it, you make the material thing come alive. And that’s so awesome.

Jan's House

See the original clip here, but please make sure you see the spoof twice, so Jan has to share the booze ;-)

UPDATE: Hilarious !!!

While Jan is working for BBDO and Johan from LG&F made the spoof (and Michael from Duval Guillaume E sent it to me), now the guys over at TheseDays came up with their spoof, and they turned the spot into a commercial for / Any other agencies want to give it a go?

    This is Jan.
    And my neighbour is also a lucky guy. He works also at an ad agency and has a beautiful wife. And as it looks now, soon there will be a bottle of champagne on top of that. A bottle that I recieved from IDFX, newyear 2006, with a pink logo which is still on my office desk and never has seen a fridge until now. In other words, I will not buy bubbly wine for ‘my neighbors’. I will send them the one who’s on my desk.
    But thanks anyway for the extra attention on the sale of my house.
    This sunday I have several visitors. I’ll let you know if it’s sold for 425000 Euro and I’ll won’t give my neighbours a percentage on that amount….
