Is This A Funny or Sad Real Estate Video?

By
Real Estate Technology with AgencyLogic
I'm not often lost for words but I am having watched this video from "The B Squad". Clearly it's supposed to be funny in the same vein as pioneering sitcoms like "The Office" where we are made to feel uncomfortable as we laugh. I lost count of the number of cringe worthy moments especially towards the end. Never let it be said that sarcasm is un-American.

The people behind The B Squad describe themselves as "wicked smarter than you". I'm not smart enough to work out what blog category to put this in as it could fit in several; 'Marketing Tips', 'General Interest' or 'Just For Fun'. I opted with the last one, is that correct?

I don't know what to say about this video. Funny...some...sarcastic...maybe...mostly dumb. I think it is a little over and above to the point where it becomes tasteless. The film does attempt to point out all the things we go thorugh as Realtor's regarding marketing to become the go to Realtor and some of the rdiculous things we go through to be that selected one...Wayne

I'm with James ... tasteless, mean, disrespectful ... other than that I am at a loss for words.

Hi Stephen - I think we're incredibly easy to make fun of, but this video was a really weak effort in that direction - not very funny. I've seen it done better. Happy New Year!

I think that you could make fun of any profession ... and just about anyone could do a better job at it!
