Need Help with the Mortgage? Get Paid to Paint a Giant Ad on the Side of Your House


Ad firm Adzookie is claiming that if people are willing to turn the outside of their house into an advertisement–effectively turning their house into a billboard–Adzookie will make their monthly mortgage payments for them. Though the above picture was created with Photoshop, and Adzookie has yet to paint anyone’s house, Adzookie CEO Romeo Mendoza claims that since the offer launched Tuesday, the firm has already received more than 1,000 applications. The qualification criteria from Adzookie’s website:

We’re looking for houses to paint. In fact, paint is an understatement. We’re looking for homes to turn into billboards. In exchange, we’ll pay your mortgage every month for as long as your house remains painted

Here are a few things we’re looking for. You must own your home. It cannot be rented or leased. We’ll paint the entire outside of the house, minus the roof, the windows and any awnings. Painting will take approximately 3 – 5 days. Your house must remain painted for at least three months and may be extended up to a year. If, for any reason, you decide to cancel after three months or if we cancel the agreement with you, we’ll repaint your house back to the original colors.

If you’re prepared for the bright colors and stares from neighbors just complete the submission form below. We review every submission. If your home meets our criteria, an Adzookie team member will contact you.

What the information fails to mention is exactly how high the mortgage can be in order to qualify for the offer.
