Entertainment in Switzerland: Housing Ads

I like reading the housing ads in Switzerland for three reasons:

1. The prices are so outrageous it's kind of entertaining. (4.5 room apartment in the middle of nowhere Aargau for SFr 844,000? Oh and that doesn't include a garage...that's an extra SFr 25,000).

2. I can understand most of the text.

3. You come across gems like this:


Come on, really. Who can resist a Geak Apero...Not to mention the art direction on this ad really matches my English translation of such a thing.

Sooo funny.

They now have billboards out advertising/promoting Swiss bread. As if they are importing it from other countries & there is competition? Oh Switzerland.

That's funny. I like the Swiss butter ads too. Like the Swiss would buy any other kind of butter...

I work in advertising, Chantal, and I can totally appreciate this! My favorite was an ad I saw when I was traveling through Australia for a "whipper snipper" (apparently that's Australian for lawn mower) :)

The impacts of the retreat has hit some harder than others, however for everybody the test of securing a basic credit from a customary loaning establishment has turned into that bit harder. In any case, shouldn't something be said about when looking for assets to purchase a home? As substantial as the subsequent obligation may be, it is conceivable to return home advances with awful credit. Cash Advance Chicago
