That Particularly Awful Australian Real Estate Ad

Given that the style gurus at The Guardian tell us that this is indeed particularly awful we bring it to your attention:

There’s a certain wonder that it’s the house they’re trying to sell here rather than something more intimate.

A Sydney real estate listing has drawn equal parts praise and ridicule for a custom-made two-minute video described as “so breathtakingly horrific that it borders on art”. The lavish cinematic offering, for a four-bedroom house in Padstow, shows a couple dancing through the property, prowling across their kitchen benchtop, awkwardly swimming, and then settling into bed – all to a pounding dance music soundtrack.

Err, yes. But then we English didn’t exactly send the more refined segment of our population to Australia, did we?
