A Sydney real estate listing attracted compliments and ridicule in equal parts for a tailor-made two-minute video, described as "so incredibly awful that it borders on art."
The luxurious film offer for a four-bedroom house in Padstow shows a couple dancing around the property, hanging around the kitchen counter, swimming awkwardly and then settling on the bed – all on a dance music soundtrack.
The video, which was produced by a third-party company, was removed and re-loaded with a new supporting song this morning after it became viral.
On Twitter, it was described as unnecessarily sexual, incredibly funny and "the video more real estate agent I've seen"
Real estate agent Sam Nader told Guardian Australia that he had prepared several videos for his properties, and was pleased with the attention.
"I just wanted to do something different in the industry and it really worked," he said. "I made one for a house in Illawong and broke the area record. $ 3,205,000, sold before the auction.
"The video attracts the property and the purpose of the property is to get as many eyes as possible on the property. It was supposed to be funny. Be funny, rude or sexy, every video I make is different. "
Nader, who has been a real estate agent for 12 years, said he has always used a different cast of dancers and actors for each video.
Video analysis found that the woman and, potentially, the man who performed the dance were actually different people from the couple shown in the house wedding photos.
The floor plan analysis also found that anyone using the bathroom would have been visible from the kitchen and vice versa.
Nader said he had another video planned for his next property, but wanted to "keep it a secret."
"They're always different people, it's just creative marketing," he said.
