Dana + Real Estate Advertising = Funny


I've done my share of bashing real estate advertising, but Dana Severson, a freelance copywriter from Minneapolis, (also soon to be home of the guy who can't say no and will go down remembered as a total douche instead of a Super Bowl winner. Yes, I'm talking about Deanna Favre's husband, the Wrangler wearing douche.) What was I saying? Oh, yeah - Dana has taken bashing real estate advertising to a new place with his site The Real "Ad" Tor Awards. That's a mouthful of a name, but it's a niche that Dana clearly owns.

I see a coffee table book in Dana's future. And lawsuits from those featured in it.

UPDATE: This just in from Dana Severson:
I'm not the freelance copywriter Dana Severson from Minnesota. I do know him though. I'm the advertising director Dana Severson from Minnesota. He and I compete for Google rankings. Regardless, I appreciate the plug.

So, now I see how things work up there in Minnesota. And we make fun of Arkansas and West Virginia for being inbred.

  • Expressed another way, the equation in this ad is also Home - Sold = Laurel Coyle.

  • Well stated my friend! I'm a bit upset that my "professor" contact at MIT didn't catch that.

  • Glad to see I'm not the only person that confuses Dana Severson from Minnesota with the other Dana Severson from Minnesota.

  • Some people call the person with your name (or the same name) who competes with your for Google results your "Googleganger", a play on "doppleganger", meaning a lookalike confused for the original.
