Sex sells… a house… | Sexy Aussie Real Estate Ads

What do lingerie models, guns and helicopters have in common? As strange as it may sound, they are all part of an ad for a house…

Yes, you’re reading it right, a house. Australian real estate agency NEO Property has taken a somewhat unorthodox approach to selling houses.

Real estate agents Ian Adams and Adrian Jenkins have made a mini movie for 15 Queen Anne Court in Queensland, Australia which features more close-ups of model Elle Polson than it does of the house.

Old Spice Guy is back!

In case you’ve missed it, one of my favorite people of 2010 is back, Old Spice Guy! If you don’t know who I’m talking about, check out my post on him and the ‘ Smell Like a Man, Man’ campaign. Just one of the best Social Media campaigns of 2010!

Anyways, so it looks like Old Spicey is back!
In a short YouTube video the spicy hunk has announced that he has returned for a new campaign to, as he says ‘inform the people on this crazy blue marble that we call earth how they or their man can use Old Spice to smell as fresh as the freshest-smelling places on earth’.

In normal language, he’s going to tell us all about the latest Old Spice product.

4 Social Media highlights of 2010

Now that we’ve reached the end of the year I started thinking about which Social Media moments pop-up while going over the past year.

1. Old Spice Guy – great brand engagement

This for me is number one. Simply because the Old Spice Guy campaign was such a viral success and there were a lot of failed and successful spoofs!

One of the things I really liked about this campaign was the timing. They created 186 video responses in such a short time frame, that is was almost a real-time response. Another thing I think was good (and is also something where a lot of campaigns fail at) is the fact that they found the right balance. The video responses were directed to anyone that tweeted him, from famous people like Ashton Kutcher to John Doe. He even had some advice for the US president.

This made his followers even more eager to engage with him and as a result with the brand Old Spice.

I think we will be seeing more of these fast paced campaigns in the future.

Very creepy soap commercial

I came across this very funny but creepy soap commercial today and the first thing I thought was Tjongolongo! how cool is that! It’s a video about the cleaning product you use in your house and what’s inside them. The video is from peopleagainsdirty.com, they feel that everyone has the right to know what’s inside the cleaners you use and they are trying to get the Household Product Labelling Act approved.
