Home advertising ... literally

Adzookie's "Paint my house" scheme is an innovative – if unsubtle – approach to advertising that brings new meaning to the notion of having loud neighbors. In return for painting an entire US home with a billboard-sized advert, Adzookie will pay the home-owner's mortgage for the three-month period the house is contracted to remain painted, with the option to extend the contract for up to a year. The entire exterior is painted excepting the roof, and if the contract is canceled by Adzookie or the home-owner during the contract period they will paint the house back to its original colors.
Adzookie.com CEO Romeo Mendoza had the idea when driving past houses sign-posted "Bank-owned." Feeling sorry for the owners he pondered a way to help and struck on the idea of paying people to paint their homes with adverts. Adzookie, a free mobile advertising company, is known for its direct advertising approach so this initiative makes sense to them.
"Promoting our business in a way that's outrageous and fun just make sense," says Mendoza.
Hi. My neighbors house needs a new paint makeover. Brainiacsfrommars can I submit an application for them? They probably wouldn't mind because its vacant most of the time.
you can paint my house any time
If I had a neighbor that did this to their house, it would mysteriously get egged every day until it returned to normal.
and Howe your car would not start the next day when I saw you on my outside doing the egging thingy on my outside cameras
Just checked this headline twice - three times now - for the April 1. date.!! We agreed it was however supreme Brechtian advertising technique...ie total alienation.
LOL Howe. I\'d be laughing the entire time I washed my house. Eggs are EXPENSIVE when you talk about egging a house every day that\'s a tremendous investment. If I left this on my house for a year and you egged the house every day with 18 eggs, which is a small contribution, you\'d have spent $1500 just to make the statement you didn\'t appreciate my paint-job. That\'s just ridiculous.
