Veteran actor John Gaden (pictured above) appears in an edgy comedy video highlighting the recent overheated Sydney auction market.

The parody clip, directed by former Julliard student Stephen King features an auction of a studio apartment with no toilet in "south west, west Sydney," five and a half hours from the Sydney CBD.

King, who plays the auctioneer (pictured below) says "as I'm sure you're aware the housing market in Sydney is almost impossible to break into, you almost need a large inheritance to buy the most modest of properties."

The so-called apartment at 1 Backwater Road, Shithole Park is bought by the pressured son-in-law (below) desperate for a property, played by the actor Jay James-Moody.

We won't spoil the plot so are leaving the sale price undisclosed for your viewing of the hilarious recent YouTube upload which you can watch here. However be warned, there is some adult language.

James-Moody was a student at the Newtown School of Performing Arts and recently won best actor in a leading role in an independent musical, in the Squabbalogic production of The Drowsy Chaperone at the Sydney theatre awards.

Gaden, who is currently performing in the Sydney Theatre Companies rendition of Orlando, plays an old man in a wheelchair onlooking at the auction who wets himself.

Gaden is possibly the only actor in the auction room with a Sydney property in actuality - having moved from Balmain in the 1970s to Bondi then Rushcutters Bay for the past eight years.

The video has had over 800 views in its first four days on YouTube.

It was written and directed by Michael Demosthenous and Stephen James King.
