Seriously, I could care less that this is a viral ad video. This is creepy and awesome at the same time.

The YouTuber who posted the candid camera footage describes the person caught on tape as “an uninvited guest living in my apartment”. He goes on to explain that he took the footage to the police, resulting in the arrest of the woman, who they confirmed was living in the loft of the building and climbing into the YouTuber’s apartment every night to eat, go to the toilet (or rather, the sink), and watch television.

The video is a fake; a marketing campaign for an accommodation rental website [deleted. Don’t want spambots-ed]. It’s very well done however – the only possible giveaway is at the end of the video, where you get the feeling the actor knows he’s being filmed. Web users certainly had a hard time deliberating over its authenticity, causing just the buzz the company desired.

^ Thanks, JoeyBuzz, for the link. The father & son team does a fine job explaining what we all have been wanting to see clearly in a Goeff-style chart.

That is actually kind of scary. Good to know that it’s not real.
