Williamsburg Condo Developers Try Desperate Viral Marketing Campaign

As we've reported before, developers in Williamsburg are getting pretty desperate. Units remain unsold, construction plans are on hold. Crusty-ass gutter punks are squatting in abandoned lots originally intended for "luxury apartments." Still, the latest ploy by JMH Development to attract attention to their condos on 184 Kent Ave is nothing short of embarrassing. They're promoting a video for a satirical dating site exclusively for Williamsburg residents:

Can anyone say FAIL. Apparently the message of this video is that if you're a pasty, dullard from Wisconsin who sometimes gets mistaken for Jared the Subway dude, fear not. Buy a luxury condo on the Williamsburg waterfront and you'll be fucking braindead hipster hotties in no time. And like the poster behind Jared's brother, "Branston," informs us, you don't even have to be Jewish.

"Love is all about location," Branston tells us, forgetting that other age-old adage: effective advertising is all about not being a fucking imbecile.

If you click through to the website, set up by the developer, things don't get much better:


Ugh. We're assuming they plan on pumping out more of these, since they've introduced some new characters on the website so stay tuned. Maybe the next episode can focus on Lenora cougaring it up with some young hipster dudes at a Deer Tick show at Market Hotel.


coach handbags are in good sale, and Coach Outlet is that you can purchase these Coach handbags at discounted price in coach bags outlets or online shop. Coach handbags have become essential daily necessities for girls and women. Cheap Coach Sunglasses is not easy for a woman to choose discounted Coach handbags, Chanel Handbags because if the fashion market is flooded with different types of cheap designer handbags.So does my honey. So when I go to the coach purses outlet store,Designer Sunglasses besides purchasing a beautiful coach bag for me,Cheap Coach Purses I also choose a vintage black designer handbags for my darling.Coach Sunglasses Outlet are also available in many other colors, Coach Purses Outlet but the pink coach wallets are one of the top designer wallets in Coach fashion.

I love how you guys have banner ads for lofts on this blog but HEAVEN FORBID a developer use a viral video (old news) to sell something.

I mean, it's not fantastic, but...overreacting much?

Eh, regardless of how funny or not funny it was, we all know what is was for.

put aside the whole viral marketing thing, its actually pretty funny.

i'm an actual pasty dullard from wisconsin and let me tell you that there are way cheaper ways to fuck braindead hipster hotties in yr neighborhood.
