A dingo runs through it.

Real Estate Agent with Jameson Sotheby's International Realty

Years ago, there was a risqué video, out of Australia in 2013, promoting a real estate listing that went viral.  People played it over and over again... it showed very 'healthy' young people in various stages of undress working their way through a beautiful listing, highlighting different areas of the home.

I know that I, personally, played it for a bunch of agent friends, and we all commented on the high production values, beautifully done... clearly cost a lot of money... and we wondered if it had paid-off.

Well, Australia comes to the table again.  Here is another Australian high-production-quality video promoting a new real estate listing that has the legs to go viral again.  The Information SuperWebs are already burning up, calling this video "raunchy" (personally, I don't see the raunch)... is it a touch risqué for the American Marketplace... yeah, perhaps.  But it's high quality... showcases the home... and holds your interest.

I love it.  What say you? Here's the old one from 2013... still my favourite.

Dear Alan,

An interesting twist on imagining yourself in a new home.

We are rather restrained in this country when you compare our advertising to that overseas.

Very different and interesting. I wonder how many were actually paying attention to the house!

Hi Alan:

Ah yes, there has been a lot of hub bub about this video. And I remember that video from several years ago about the propoerty on Savoy Drive. It certainly got lots of attention...wonder if that place sold?

I have no idea how I missed seeing this video before now, but I did!  Aussies are fun people, unconstrained by the puritanical roots we have here in America.  I have a good friend who is of East Indian decent, but was born and raised in Australia.  She often came to work in a beautiful sari.  But, at lunch time she changed into shorts and a t-shirt so she could play soccer with the guys at a nearby field.  Then at 2:00 pm each afternoon she thought we should close shop and go to the pub!

I love the Chamberlin house - beautiful kitchen, just a perfect house.
I love the Savoy house - was there a kitchen? Wait, was there a house?

I don't think my uptight little company would allow it - too bad!
Betcha people viewed the videos more than once.
