AN ACTOR who was “kicked out” of his flat has gone viral after producing a tongue-in-cheek virtual tour for prospective tenants.
Sandy Batchelor, from Kinross claims he is being “forced out” of his accommodation, but claims his landlady still wants him to help find his replacement.
The brutally honest clip sees Sandy film the flat as per his landlady’s request, but while providing a blistering commentary on its many flaws.
The hilarious clip was shared by Outlander actor Sam Heughan and has since been seen by over four million people.
The clip begins with Sandy, who is now living in London, filming a bright lounge space.
He begins: “This is the living room and all this is coming with us, as the flat comes unfurnished.”
Moving on, he sighs: “There’s the bins just outside the living room window in the summer. That’s lovely when it’s hot” before warning potential tenants about an ant infestation.
He then pans to gas stove, but qualifies it with: “That fireplace doesn’y work.”
Other targets in Sandy’s firing line include shelves, “where the boy who done them must have been drunk, as there is a 30 degree angle on them” and an extractor fan so loud “you can’t hear yourself think.”
As he moves through the flat, signs warning potential viewers appear bearing slogans such as “you will hate it here.”
He blasts the oven that is “complete p***” and a malfunctioning dryer that leaves “clothes smelling a bit funny”.
He goes on to fume about the flat’s uneven flooring which he compares to walking around a “fun house”.
Outside fares no better, as Sandy describes the “hellhole” it used to be before he and his flatmates renovated it.
He informs viewers he plans to take the plants with him when he leaves, “so the garden will end up looking like the Somme”.
Finally, Sandy finishes up his tour with a warning about the “plutonium resistant rats” and damp.
He films some mould in the corner of the room, saying: “There’s a damp problem here and I told the lady about it but told to keep the place well ventilated in f***** January.”
Sandy uploaded the video on Sunday afternoon captioned: “Our letting agent asked us to make a video of the flat we are basically being forced out of.
“I wish them the very best of luck.”
The clip has had social media users in stitches, including several famous faces.
Sam Heughan retweeted the video captioned with: “Just. Brilliant.”
Rebus author Ian Rankin wrote: “Solid gold.”
And BBC weather woman Judith Ralston added: “Ya belter.”
