Home Depot Europe?

Here’s a Home Depot spot you’ll never see on television.

Thanks to our pals over at DHADM for the find.

Edit: After all the hullaballo in the comments, I thought I should clear things up:  This parody is just that: a parody of current advertising trends.  And yes, it’s just a straight lift of the Benny Benassi vid.  Good eye, folks.

    It makes me sad that we can have commercials like that in America, also what is the name of the song on the video it rocks

    I doubt it’s real.  Anyone with a home movie editing suite can throw in some logo and say it was made by some company.  I have both this video without the Home Depot logo on it as well as the original version.  The song is by Benny Benassi called ‘Satisfaction’.  The original video was an artsy looking thing that featured 4 ppl slowly moving until they faced the screen… it wasn’t received very well.  The 2nd video which this one is based on is the remix version and we all know sex sells right?

    Whew.  At least they’re all wearing safety glasses.  Norm Abrams would be proud.

    Must. Buy. Heavy duty breaker.

    I can assure you it’s fake; it’s indeed a refurbished (pardon the pun) Benassi video. I also doubt its origin lies in Europe, the only stores that Home Depot has outside of the US are in China. We need some more research on this vid.

    Stop pissing in the Post Toasties!  I don’t care where it came from, I’m going to Home Depot this weekend and shopping like a freakin animal.

    Good god!, there goes someone ruining a perfectly done video again.

    Ha ha ha! Yea, that’s gold. I like your guys’ view brass an edday. We all know they were fake, that’s why we stared. My girlfriend made me stop the video, it was funny. She was like, “Oh I love this song.” Then, “What the hell, OMG shut that off…(as drool drips from my spacey expression)…Now!” *Smack* It was so worth it.

    Sitting here in the UK, this takes me back to the start of the year when you couldn’t get away from this Pop Promo on any of our music channels at any time of the day.

    Quality Acting though!
