Snow Day

Guess who? Well, if you guessed an outrageously witty and super smart real estate team from Iowa … you’re absolutely correct. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, Doyle and Devoe — you complete me. I mean, aren’t they exactly what the real estate advertising world needs? Better yet, aren’t they exactly what WE need? The answer is an unequivocal “yes” people. YES.

This scene reminds me of a story. When I was just a little runt (when peeing in the snow was a favorite pastime), I’d often gather with my friends at our local sledding hill for a day of fun (D&D knows what I’m talking about). We’d start in the morning and finish when our moon boots froze over. On one particular outing, I was feeling rather confident in my ability to control the sleek dog sled. Rather than lie in the standard tummy position, I chose to be a hotdogger (much like little Mrs. Sunshine in the pink headband) and ride in the hang-five position. Considering this was pre-snowboarding, I thought the idea was quite innovative. I was wrong.

Look, not a year goes by and I hear about some kid, on some hill … well, it’s enough to make me sick. Moral of the story? Ride low and go slow. Yes — I know, I know. “Well, Doyle and Devoe are standing up on their sleds, why can’t I?” While that might be true, they’re professionals. There should have been a disclaimer. Shame on them.

D&D, I know exactly where I’m heading. I’m throwing on my long-johns, hopping on the toboggan and meeting you guys in the chalet. I’ve stuffed a little something gold in my snow pants that I’m just dying to show you.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

doyle_billboard-12Yes, yes, YES!!! About freckin’ time someone flushes out this concept! I mean, that headline has just been sitting there with a golden bow wrapped around it, begging for it to be plagiarized (And, I’m referring to the good kind of plagiarism). What took the real-estate community so long to figure this out? Give it to Doyle and Devoe (yes, the same group that brought you this beauty), who not only capitalized on the headline, but also managed to coax the original cast members to show up for the photo shoot. There is a God and he apparently lives in Iowa.

Question: The tension between Dorothy and the Wicked Witch appears to be over. Can someone please address this?

Question: Did you guys help Dorothy relocate to Iowa from Kansas?

Question: What are you guys going to wear to this years Platinum nomination ceremony?

That’s right, put on your ruby slippers, grab your can of oil, hop on your flying monkeys and get up to Minneapolis for the awards show, you’re all invited (and so is your little dog Toto too).
