Homebuyers can be a little weird. But don’t worry, Realtors are there to help them with no judgments. That’s the takeaway of a new series of video ads made for the National Association of Realtors that features potential buyers getting so excited about certain features of properties they’re seeing, they engage in strange behaviors like showering with all their clothes on while their Realtors calmly continue their showings.

The ads were directed by the Perlorian Brothers of production house MJZ for the creative agency Arnold Worldwide in a distinctive surrealist and mod style, as the trade publication SHOOT Magazine reported.

They’re running online now as part of a “limited, online only buy targeted specifically towards millennials,” NAR spokesperson Jane Dollinger told Inman via email.

In one of the 30-second spots (above), a couple of screams indecipherable words at a property’s 12-foot vaulted ceilings as a Realtor looks on, smiling at them.

In another (below), a fully-dressed man stands and hums blissfully while the water from a stylish rainfall showerhead pours on him.

Another features a father switching the ceiling lights on and off as his young daughter looks on at him bemusedly.

And finally, a young couple lie face down on a wooden floor as a Realtor tells them it’s made from Brazilian walnut.

What do you think of them? Sound off in our poll below:

“In our research, we uncovered that one of the things people like most about Realtors is that they’re forgiving of a client’s homebuying eccentricities – their insecurities, their weird obsessions,” said Josh Kahn, Arnold’s senior vice president and creative director, told SHOOT. “They don’t judge, in fact they do the opposite. They embrace those eccentricities to help a client identify the perfect match.”

NAR regularly releases ads that use creative ways to encourage homebuyers to use the services of a licensed Realtor. Along with designing ads for other real estate companies like the London-based Yopa, the Perlorian Brothers also directed ads for T-Mobile, Domino’s and KFC.
