Remember Adzookie who turns your home into a billboard, and pays your mortgage for you? No? Here's a funny new Badlander of sorts, Brainiacs from Mars have exactly the same new media idea. They'll paint your house like a garish ad, and pay your mortgage for you. And just like the Adzookie example, Braniacs has "follow us on twitter" and useless facebook buttons on their example home. Is there a difference between the companies? Oh yes, one thing: the name. The CEO is still Romeo Mendoza, and the idea is the one he launched last year under the name of Adzookie. Wonder what prompted the name change.
Brainiacs From Mars CEO Romeo Mendoza says his ultimate goal is to turn 1000 homes in the US into billboards for him company, Reuters reported.
Mr Mendoza has received 38,000 applications since he first advertised the scheme on his website in April last year, from as far away as Russia and Japan.

Adzookie launched the offer on its website Tuesday -- and by late afternoon, the company had already received more than 1,000 applications, according to Adzookie CEO Romeo Mendoza. One even came from a church.
"It really blew my mind," Mendoza said. "I knew the economy was tough, but it's sad to see how many homeowners are really struggling."
