In a world where Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loans are processed without meeting all government verification requirements, a group of aliens come to planet Earth to save originators from themselves. Equipped with fraud detection software, the aliens keep the bad loans out and get good loans processed.
Sound like a nail-biting drama? It’s the plot to one of a series of videos Interthinx posted on YouTube to promote its fraud detection services. The videos take footage from old movies and dub them with new scripts to fit a number of FHA-centered storylines.
The four films are “Attack of the FHA Loan Files,” “Evasion of the FHA Vampire,” “The FHA Affair,” and “The Courtship of Donald’s Sister.”
Obviously, we’re not talking about Oscar-worthy cinematography here, but nonetheless, the videos are pretty funny, especially considering they’re on a subject that, while important, can also be pretty dry.
You can see all the videos here, or check out the epic space adventure below:

In it, the Swiss bank instructed female employees on not just how to dress and how to smell, but also preached the importance for ladies to apply lotion after taking showers. Fast forward to today and fellow Swiss bank, Credit Suisse has now created an official role to boost equal opportunities and create a fair treatment environment. Has the American mortgage industry made similar progress?
