Serves them right!
While people are struggling to survive in the pandemic, tenants are facing problems of their own. Landlords are trying to screw them, proverbially, for the rent and some of them are even going as far as evicting them. Given such high-handed behavior of the landlords, can a tenant really be blamed for plotting suitable revenge, for the story of this guy is just that, revenge served cold, in lingerie, and on video.
As reported by the Independent, a Scottish actor, Sandy Batchelor, pulled off a hilarious stunt when forced to leave the house, despite the strict lockdown measures in place. So, Sandy Batchelor, when allegedly asked to evict, was also asked by the real estate agent to make a video of the house that could be shown to new tenants who may want to rent this place. He did create a video but with a hilarious twist.
He began with a detailed account of everything that was wrong with the place including broken fixtures, rat infestation, and poor pieces of equipment. He also planted his own messages all around the house that were captured in the video, in a kind of subliminal message for those who may view the video. Not only was the video filled with such 'easter eggs,' the ending was phenomenal as well.
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. pic.twitter.com/h3fcOw657w— Sandy Batchelor (@sandybatchelor) May 17, 2020
And of course, people applauded his move and Twitter was filled with some incredible response.
I was once told that the damp in my bedroom was due to my breathing in there, the Landlords actually wrote to me to tell me to stop breathing while I’m asleep— samdclulow (@samdclulow) May 17, 2020
Digging up the plants is a supreme act of spite and bitterness.— Don O'Meara (@don_o_meara) May 17, 2020

Takes me back. My sister completely redecorated and modernised a flat. The friend she was renting from got jealous and wanted her flat back and evicted her after seeing it at the housewarming party. Whole family went down and drew all over the walls before she moved out.— Kathryn White (@RealKaffo) May 17, 2020
