Zoopla: It's a sheller's market.

by Andrew MacGregor


Zoopla: “Crabs” - 60s

Online estate agents Zoopla ditch their house divining angle in favour of some chatty hermit crabs. We hear these crustaceans discuss their property travails in a variety of regional accents - all the while avoiding becoming a seagull’s lunch. Who’d be a house-hunter, eh?

This sector has seen an encouraging upturn in quality recently, employing both subtle and broad humour to grab attention. Zoopla leans towards the latter here, aided by some neat nature photography. Ostraconophobes may squirm, but it’s a fun and off-beat means of presenting house-hunting’s foibles.
