SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Realtor.com®, a leading online real estate destination operated by News Corp [NASDAQ: NWS, NWSA]; [ASX: NWS, NWSLV] subsidiary Move, Inc., today launched "Homeblebrag," allowing homeowners the ability to customize a shareable video bragging about their home, featuring actress, producer and director Elizabeth Banks.
Homeblebrag, which is part of realtor.com's® larger "Own Home" marketing campaign that launched in June, celebrates the excitement for a home buyer or renter and offers the opportunity to boast about the new home – with Banks. First time and move up buyers, alike, can enter their address at www.realtor.com/homeblebrag to create a video of Banks on their front lawn or in front of their building, bragging about the best qualities of their new dream home in a video sharable via social media. The campaign is a humorous play on #humblebrag movement in social media, started by Harris Wittels on Twitter, creating a positive (and hilarious) way to share successes and encourage homeowners to shout their news from the rooftop.
"The Homeblebrag campaign builds upon our hilarious two-year relationship with Elizabeth Banks," said Andrew Strickman, head of brand and chief creative for realtor.com®. "Not only can realtor.com® help you find your dream home, we can place Liz in your front yard. You may be too humble to brag about your exciting new home purchase, but realtor.com® and Elizabeth Banks are not."
To date, the "Own Home" campaign is off to a strong start, outperforming previous campaign benchmarks of ad recall and brand link — two major levers in driving accelerated audience growth for realtor.com®. The campaign was created by Pereira & O'Dell New York, in collaboration with realtor.com's brand team, and is comprised of TV ads, digital videos and social integrations.
