Phil Jones is the Banksy of the Minneapolis real estate industry.

For the past month, Jones has been pasting up pictures of himself dressed as local realtors as some sort of bizarre art project.

Perhaps you have seen his work and wondered why a guy was dressing as a girl in an otherwise conventional real estate ad? Now you know.

"I have a deep respect for anyone who is willing to put their face on a bus stop bench knowing what people do to them," Jones writes on his website. "I thought it would be fun to do my own take on our local realtor advertisements."

In this one, Jones outdid himself and went for a twofer:

Would you buy a house from this man?

@DavidFoureyes The only question left is whether this was taken off the Buzzfeed article, or if they took it directly from reddit, too.
