Update 2:47 p.m.: The plot thickens! We had this video posted earlier, but agreed to take it down because it may have used certain signs and logos without permission. Whatevs, we know you can find it for yourselves because nothing ever leaves the internet. This brings up a whole new conversation about these spoof videos: are they catching on with a certain generation only?
Sometimes we at CandysDirt.com love digging into the dark corners of the Internet to find some gems that need to see the light of day. A few days ago we found one such Internet gem: A real estate music video spoof featuring Dallas Realtor Lydia Player and two adorable cohorts, Ryan Booth and Johnny Mowad.
The Realtor spoof video is a growing trend, featuring pop hits like “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen, and “Gangnam Style” by Psy. Re/Max Lexington Bluegrass Team went one step further and made their own rap video, which is just incredible!
After a little more digging we found the producer of the video, Anthony Galo, who is actually an intern at Clay Stapp & Co! We asked Galo a few questions, and Clay was kind enough to give him a few minutes between making copies and coffee (we kid! we kid!) to answer them.
CandysDirt.com: So, how did you end up in the real estate biz, interning for Clay Stapp? What’s it like?
Anthony Galo: I never thought the real estate business was this much fun! I entered the real estate world in the summer of 2012 as an intern at CLAY STAPP+CO and came back for this summer to intern for Clay again! I owe it to CSCO for all the opportunities I have had in the real estate field.
CD: The video is adorable. Tell us what it was like to shoot and produce the spoof.
Galo: I am so glad you all enjoyed the video! It was a pleasure producing. The video was shot in about 2-4 hours. I spent a few days editing the video. The editing process wasn’t a long process since I had prior experience from the previous summer when I filmed some homes for Clay. Also, our singers were great! The female voice was Emily Naul, who did an amazing job! Our male singer was a close friend of mine, Elliot Skinner, he actually has performed on national television with Keith Urban! It was great having both singers with us, they knocked it out!
CD: What was it like working with Lydia, Ryan, and Johnny?
Galo: Working with some top Ebby realtors was so much fun! They had the perfect characteristics for the video and just had fun with it! I really did enjoy producing this video, the agents gave me more power and energy than I had expected so it made my job a lot easier!
