Dr Mumbo

Droga’s for sale

Droga had clearly had enough of roughing it in such squalor, and wanted to upgrade to something more habitable.

The Domain ad is marketing the property – which featured in a Schweppes commercial – as ‘Better than David Droga’s Apartment’.

Modern House told Dr Mumbo it is holding an exclusive viewing evening for ad execs on Thursday this week.
