At first I thought this has to be an April Fools’ joke. But hitting my inbox today, the date seems to be off. So as far as I can tell, it’s real.
Mobile Ad network Adzookie is offering to basically turn your house into a billboard. The company will pay your monthly mortgage if you let it repaint your house with the marketing message of one of its ad partners or Adzookie itself (get it … “house ad”).
This sounds obnoxious at first but it might not be so bad if you’re hard up for cash or just want to piss off your neighbors. And it seems to be catching on as the company has been contacted by 223 homeowners, 12 businesses and even one church.
