The Creepy Dude in This Airbnb Parody Will Make You Rethink Letting Your Home

Agency Portal A Parodies Brand's Latest Uplifting Ad

Published on

Editor's Pick

So we've seen a string of parodies of Airbnb's new, optimistic ad asking "Is mankind?" The latest (and funniest) to parody the spot, from digital agency Portal A, features a creepy, flabby guy in a pair of white underpants walking towards a door as the narrator voices probably our worst nightmares about letting some stranger loose in our apartment.

"He left pubic hair in your bed … he found your panties and tried them on …" and so forth. The ad ends with the slogan "It's his house now" and the hashtag #creepy.
