Realtor left red faced by TV pranksters
A real estate agent in the UK thought they had found a great way to get potential clients to stop and browse their window but the promotional idea turned into an embarrassment. The London agents put a TV screen in the window showing a rolling news channel with the plan that those passing the office would stop to watch news footage and would also check out property displays. The plan seemed to be working until pranksters used a universal remote control to switch channels after hours – to an adult entertainment channel. No data is available on whether the changed channel produced more business for the realtor!
