Strife on Mars
SpareRoom isn’t like other flatshare sites. It doesn’t just list flatshares and people looking to fill them. It goes further to help people find the right group to live with and ensure positive flatsharing experiences.
We needed to deliver a shareable idea that communicated this.
The Big Idea
There’s a ‘flatshare’ that’s out-of-this-world. Literally. It’s orbiting the earth at 17,000mph. It’s the International Space Station. And up there the flatmates always get on. No arguing about stolen milk, finished loo roll or shower-hogging.
Astronauts are trained to live in a co-habiting utopia. So they are the perfect people to advise earth-bound flatmates on building their own conflict-free flatshare.
Introducing former NASA astronaut Terry Virts.
Now employed as SpareRoom’s Flatshare Goodwill Ambassador. We filmed Commander Virts in his NASA threads presenting a comedic film passing on sage space-based advice to flatsharers the world-over.
Simple, funny and very shareable.
