It’s hard to find a new roommate. We’ve all been there. Someone’s going on exchange, moving home, or just decides they don’t want to live with you anymore. Most of us head to Facebook or Craigslist and put up a short ad explaining why we’re awesome, then cross out fingers and hope whoever responds is not a serial killer/rapist/owner of a strange smelling pet.
Jonathan Mann had the same idea, but took it up a notch. He decided that the best way to show how truly spectacular he and his apartment are was through his channel on YouTube (he writes a song a day – this is #1492). The song explains anything you would want to know about the living space, and while he may not be a great dancer, he seems like he would be a pretty funny roommate. Although I’m not 100 per cent sure if the ad will attract more or less weirdos than any other medium.
There are couples that take the high route in breakups:
And couples that take the low route:
Then there are those special couples that like to take what I call the “Taylor Swift” route, by writing a song about it. Jonathan and Ivory were dating for five whole years and decided their relationship wasn’t working. They announced their breakup to their friends and their YouTube fans through a song called “We’ve Got To Break Up.” Jonathan writes a song a day for his YouTube channel and this is #1435 (seriously).
He wrote on his YouTube page: “Yes, it’s true folks. Ivory and I are splitting up. It’s really sad. I’m really sad. I think you may have been able to tell in some recent songs. It’s going to be a hard road ahead for me, but I know that this is the right decision and that eventually we’ll both be happier in the end.”
Jonathan wants to have kids but Ivory isn’t on the same page. It’s kind of depressing but catchy at the same time. It also shows you don’t have to HATE your ex-boyfriend or girlfriend after you breakup. What’s the sanest breakup you’ve ever been through?
