“It’s Free Real Estate” is a line from a Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! sketch. It has grown into a popular GIF and a popular Bait and Switch -style video punchline on Youtube.

The sketch “Free House For You, Jim” appeared in the March 24th, 2009 episode of Tim & Eric, “Presidents.” The sketch format parodies a commercial by having the title actors claim they have a free house for one person, Jim Boonie. The ad, shown below, ends with Tim Heidecker whispering “It’s free real estate,” to the camera.

Over the following years, “It’s Free Real Estate” remained a popular in-joke for the Tim & Eric fandom. It first appeared on Youtube in 2009, [1] and Adult Swim uploaded the entire sketch to Youtube in 2012. [2] References to it have appeared on Yahoo Answers [3] and in IGN forums. [4] It also appeared in several threads on the Tim & Eric subreddit. [5] [6]

The quote began to grow in popularity as a bait-and-switch punchline in the summer of 2016, following an April 29th Youtube video by Flameoffury [7] that incorporates the clip into “Wait (The Whisper Song)” by the Ying Yang Twins (shown below).

The video was posted to /r/youtubehaiku [8] by Flameoffury on June 21st, where it gained over 4,300 points, 91% upvotes as of September 15th, 2016. Following that, “It’s free real estate” appeared in similar videos, where a whisper is replaced with the quote. For example, it has appeared in a remix of Gorillaz’ “Clint Eastwood” (below, left) and Shrek (below, right).
