Dancers from real-estate ad speak out and reveal how video came about

Dancers featured in an extravagant real estate advertisement have opened up about their new-found fame after the ‘cringeworthy’ video went viral.

LJ Hooker Bankstown Director Sam Nader produced the video to promote the sale of a home on Chamberlain Road in Padstow, in Sydney’s west.

The footage shows a man arrive at the sprawling, modern home in a white Jaguar F-Type coupe and stroking the bonnet of the car before entering the property. 

He walks to the front door, where he is greeted by a woman as a remix of the song ‘Worth The Trouble’ by Cospe plays in the background. He then follows her around the house.

They pause sporadically to embrace each other and continue to dance throughout the halls of the home, before the man jumps on the counter in the kitchen.

The stars of the video, Elias and CeCe (pictured) have since spoken out about their new-found fame, with Elias saying he can’t believe how much attention the video has received 

He picks up the woman and lays her body on the counter before romantically carrying her away from the kitchen. 

The video ends with the couple laying together on a bed in the house’s master bedroom.  

The stars of the video, Elias and CeCe have since spoken out about their new-found fame, with Elias saying he can’t believe how much attention the video has received.

During an interview on Friday on Channel Nine’s , CeCe revealed the real estate agent came up with the ‘genius idea’.  

‘The real estate agent, he kind of got in contact with me through the business and he said “Look, this is the idea”, and I want a couple to dance as a husband and wife kind of thing,’ Elias said.

‘Passionate, loving husband and wife. And that’s pretty much just what we did. Like, we put it off on the spot. We didn’t expect it to become so big. But it worked out really good in our favour.’

The pair performed an equally as passionate dance around the Channel Nine studios during the interview on Friday.

Elias said the reaction to the video has been so crazy the real estate is looking at doing more advertisements with the dancers.

Other clients have also asked Elias and CeCe to help promote their properties and business.  

‘We’ve had a fair few people, even clients of mine that I’m doing their weddings and stuff like that, asking for their house to get sold and accountants. So it’s worked out really well in our favour. I think we have set the trend,’ Elias said.

The advertisement was panned by critics on social media, who labelled it as cringeworthy.

‘When the auto-tune goes up to 10000 per cent and the dancing starts I f**king lost it,’ one viewer said.

‘Saw the photos of the property and thought ”a porno has definitely been shot here” but did not think I would be watching the free porno chat room!’ another said.

‘What kind of person walks along their kitchen worktop with their shoes on?’ another viewer said.

Mr Nader said the owner of the property ‘loves’ the video.

‘People are driving past the property every single day. It’s just creative marketing, we wanted to get as many eyes on the property as possible,’ he told news.com.au.

He said he had posted another video for a different property featuring a single model that had attracted more than 250,000 views. 

The four-bedroom, and two-bathroom house is ‘crafted with attention to detail and no expense spared’ according to the listing.

‘Offering the ultimate family lifestyle with undeniable quality and comfort over a vast single level floor plan,’ the listing stated.

‘Resting on a superb parcel of land it boasts a variety of living spaces with a seamless flow to a marble floored outdoor area, established gardens and in-ground swimming pool.’

The home is being sold at auction on May 11, and Mr Nader said he expects it to fetch a price of up to $1.8million.

LJ Hooker Bankstown later apologised for the video.

‘LJ Hooker Bankstown is always looking for new ways to market our listings; however, this time we missed the mark,’ a spokeswoman said.

‘We understand that our recent video circulated on social media promoting one of our listings may have been taken out of context by some and for this we apologise.

‘We have removed the video from our digital and social media channels.’
