Just a normal real estate listing...


There's a house up for auction in Padstow, NSW (a suburb of Sydney).

Here's a link to the listing, and a direct link to the video....tour of the house.

I have to admit, it's going to get a lot of attention for the house, but...man, that's something.

That link goes to a video that's been removed, so I literally have no idea what this thread is about.

Maybe this video. Don't know what this thread is about, either. Guessing maybe a bit over-the-top for selling a property?

Okay, so they've removed the video.
As you can see from the listing site, it's a fancy house. The video that had been accompanying it on the listing page...well, I'm not surprised they took it down.
It is very music video in its approach; rather than just a camera man going through the house, it showed a young man arriving home, being greeted by his young wife. They greet and go more or less dancing through the house, accompanied by enormously autotuned music. At one point the man jumps up on the kitchen counter and walks along it, and then he jumps down, picks up the woman, and sets her on the counter. They break from that, and both continue on through the house, touching everything.
I came across it in my twitter feed; comments included:
"At some point, porno was shot here".
"When the autotune goes up to 100000% and the dancing starts I fucking lost it"
"this is what happens when frustrated cinematographers & editors don't have TV shows or music videos to work on"

A lot of effort went into it; it's a shame it's been taken down.

Yep, that's it!

How big are the insects again?? I'd build a moat around it but that might attract more pythons.

You need that pythons to keep the rabid possums at bay.

And the pythons attract the crocs. I know they're not normally around suburban Sydney, but with global warming and all that stuff, they're heading further south every year.

Won't be too long before they're down there. Bwhahahahahha

Oh, and the possums. Don't forget the rabid possums.

All that space and the jerk parks across the sidewalk? I'd call the cops and have him towed! And they need a bigger bed.

Get his feet and her bum off the kitchen counter!

The long entry corridor won't be as much fun when you're bringing groceries home.
How much is this place, btw?

It's an odd layout. With the big glass windows, there's a direct line of sight from the kitchen/dining area into the bathroom.

Deal Lord - that's like a douchbag 101 instructional video.

He swims like a little kid, always keeping his face out of the water like that. Not to knock on people who are bad at swimming, but this guy owns a pool.

A Cracked article about what it's like having porn recorded in your house:

Perhaps not a coincidence, Cracked has a nice write-up about the house and video the OP brought up:

I think it’s funny that the song lyric is “I don’t think you’re worth the trouble” . Probably goes to why they’re selling the house.
And I’ve been in the high end construction business too long. I found myself pausing constantly in an attempt to identify the manufacturer of all the high-end appliances, electrical and electronic products. Kept forgetting to watch the sleazy homeowner antics
