And now, as they say, for something completely different.
This video popped up yesterday.
It is reminiscent of the Mike Ockenden (Association of Home Information Pack Providers) film, but not nearly so well executed. In fact, it’s more like a dyslexic take-off of a take-off.
If you need reminding of the brilliance of the original, it’s here
And the performance that should have won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress is here:
We hasten to add, the ‘AHIPP’ film wasn’t actually Mike Ockenden any more than the ‘OTM’ film stars a well-known (insert preferred name) estate agent with what might have seemed like a good idea and an uncontrollable laughing mechanism when it comes to explaining the “one other portal” rule and a 48-hour marketing delay.
We have no idea who is behind it. Whoever it is, we think we can safely say that (a) their spelling is rubbish, and (b) it wasn’t made by any friend of OnTheMarket.
The latest in those alleged dirty tricks? Well, at least this one is funny. Well, conthemarket was as well … ooh, can that be a clue?
Nor, by the way, can we identify the original ‘OnTheMarket’ film or, more likely TV chat show. Maybe one of our readers can help, particularly if they watch a lot of foreign television.
But, anyway, if you want to know the allegedly full story of how OnTheMarket was started, here it is. Your theories are very welcome.
