Every now and then we come across a listing that makes us looking twice. Welcome to “Double Take” — where we unearthed all those unusual listings so good we just have to share.

The “song-a-day” guy, Jonathan Mann, made famous by Steve Jobs during Apple’s Antennagate scandal is selling his bed on the Krrb Classifieds.

According to our sources (the song itself), Mr. Mann needs to get rid of his Queen sized bed by Tuesday, June 11, in order to make room for his girlfriend’s smaller bed when she moves in next week. A pragmatic decision given the size of his bedroom.

This Ikea Brimnes bed frame (with four drawers) comes with a spring mattress, a combo only a year old. Although buyer beware, one of the drawers has a “wonky bottom.” After the bedbug scare in New York City the last few years, Jonathan soothes concerns (in a three-part harmony) with the fact that he’s never had bedbugs in his entire 31 years of existence.

If you live in the area and need a perfectly good place to lay your head, then buy his bed on Krrb.

Song A Day



Jonathan Mann has been writing a song a day for 1,600+ days on unexpected topics such as Anderson Cooper’s ‘Eye Cleavage’ to the breakup with Ex. He even wrote a song about me!

“After hearing Jonathan’s Brooklyn Beta performance, I wish every milestone in my life could be summarized by his sharp wit and sung back to me by those golden vocal cords!” — Tina Roth Eisenberg, SwissMiss

    Ok, so this has got to be the most creative ad I’ve seen on here. I hope he gets to sell his bed after putting all this effort in making a video. And oh my, the size of that bedroom. What we do to live in NYC!
