New York City's Daffy's discount store is far from the most luxurious place in the city but they are offering a pretty unique contest. You can live in a luxury apartment in the West Village for just ten percent of the usual rent. Developer Jesse Keyes was having trouble selling a condo at One Seventh Avenue South so he is renting it out for $7,000 a month. But the winner of the Daffy's contest can rent it for just $700. To enter you need to go make a 30-second video at one of the Daffy's store locations saying why you deserve the apartment. Daffy's will narrow entrants down to five finalists and their videos will be voted on by the public September 7 through September 16. The winner will be announced on October 1 and will move in then for one year. Daffy's is also opening up a pop-up shop in the building's vacant retail space. More details are available on the Daffy's website.
