A friend emailed me this YouTube Clip which I though was brilliant.

I know some will say it's inappropriate, but it will get your attention .....

...... and that's what marketing is all about.

Brilliant ad, although I myself would never make it!  I showed it to lots of co-workers and my wife, and it was funny how much "sex" people saw in it.  Even your blog title focuses on it.  Yet, while the guy and girl are completely nude (were they husband and wife?  brother and sister?  lovers?  It never says.) there really weren't any...not ANY...overtly sexual elements.  Lots of nudity; no sex.  Interesting comment on our culture!

Stewart,

I would like to know what it cost to make. It is like a small film.

Brilliant, indeed.  Does the gentleman in the video stay with the home?  ;-)

Well, I wouldn't use the weight bench again without a Clorox cleaning.

This is thinking outside of Real Estate Advertising box.  It is really brilliant.

LOL I admitedly have not watched the vid yet but the pic and the comments are money!

Of course it sells if not why then do the most beautiful get used in car and beer and anything else looking to bolster sales... it works

This looks like something straight out of South Beach here in Miami. This is pretty normal down here. It's a European thing...

I've seen videos like this before.  If nothing else, they generate a lot of web traffic for the listing agent.  What is that old saying? "There is no such thing as bad publicity?"

Loved it Stewart.  Very clever, actually and I don't think it's all that sex related either.  Now, the questions is, will it sell the home?

Hi Stewart - Inappropriate as it may be, it's still an awesome ad, and I wish I could do that kind of stuff for my listings.

This ad agency has done a number of very provocative real estate ads.  Don't think it would fly here as easily as it does with the Aussies but you never know.

My only complaint is that the gentleman did not put a towel on the bench when he was working out... I thought that was pretty "ewwwww"!

Pretty sure that wouldn't work around here.  But, it does get your attention, if you are male anyway.

Hi Stewart...Good one. I've seen others from down under from the same Ad Agency..Pricey I'm sure....if it does the job, that's a good thing.
