You too can be Bored to Death in a hot 1-bed, $2,035 duplex

As obsessive fans of HBO’s Bored to Death, we perked up when this affinity-marketing gem from StuntmanPR showed up in our email this afternoon:

The 75 Grand Avenue building ( in Brooklyn is offering renters who sign a lease before November 1st a complimentary “Clinton Hill Experience Kit” — which includes a 30 minute hot stone massage from the neighborhood’s Body By Brooklyn, a basket of house-made scones from Choice Market and a DVD of Bored To Death: The Complete First Season.

We stopped reading for a moment, wondering if the 30-minute hot stone massage was actually supposed to make us flash back to the image of Jason Schwartzman padlocked keppe-to-toe in a black leather body suit while being thwacked by a dominatrix in the season premiere, just before a police raid sends our bumbling S&M superhero careening through the streets of Manhattan into the unshockable hands of Ted Danson.


But the apartments sound nice: No-fee rentals featuring 16-foot ceilings and mezzanines, full-aperture windows, Caesar stone countertops, Brazilian “Ipe” walnut flooring, European custom cabinetry and stainless steel appliances by Liebherr, Sub-zero and Fulgor start at $2,035 for a one-bedroom duplex with a private terrace.
