Living in Canada can actually be not terrible

With the economic crisis stalling growth on the home-buying front, the Canadian Real Estate Association has launched a campaign to educate consumers about how to work with CREA's greedy, blood-sucking members. Sorry, that was a cheap shot. Let's call them professional hosers. Zig crafted ads showing folks who should've consulted realtors. The guy above loses sleep and sanity because he bought a house beneath a flight path. In another spot, a woman attacks complex real-estate paperwork with a large potted plant. Both freak out more than is necessary, in the hammy tradition of William Shatner, also a native of the Great White North. I assume they're reacting to Tiny Tim's "Tiptoe Through the Tulips" song on the soundtrack, which is a lot more irritating than a jet engine or mortgage-agreement minutia. Maybe they just realized they live in Canada. Either way, they probably just need a D'Angelo sandwich, and they'll be fine.
