Earth Mortgages Advertisement

Recommended Posts

Just watched one of the most dumbed down financial adverts of ALL time. I am not kidding, just keep your eyes peeled for the Earth Mortgages advert who as Stuart Hall states are more than happy to help you remortgage if you have been refused elsewhere. The thing that makes this advertisement so pathetic is the dumb 'Its A Knockout' animals, people, and dumbed down Earth Mortgages assisstant. I believe she actually spins around her chair and goes "Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee". All set to the sound of cartoon noises. "Have a sunny day" indeed.

Whatever next? How to become a property developer with Playschool using only a few chocolate buttons and some playdough?

Humpty f***in' Dumpty! :(

They can't even spell 'competitive' correctly on their mortgage home page.  :blink:

Amateurs.

Nice cheesy picture of Stuart Hall inside, along with a picture of his signature, maybe we could sign him up for a mortgage?

I quite liked the chap but times must be hard, you'd think these hard up celebrities would do something a little more reputable like deal in crack.

Carol Vorderman et al are going to look very dodgy when the public realise what a bunch of sharks they are, no doubt they'll all be giving their fee's to Great Ormond Street.

Had a look and I think it's how you spell it! Having another look..

Ah yes!!! Unbelievable!! Absolutely shocking.

This is the intell..internn...intall...intullectua... cleverness of the type of person who works in finance.

They can't even spell "you're" correctly on their mortgage home page. The also missed a full stop at the end of the sentence.

If you own your own home and your looking for a mortgage, remortgage or loan with the minimum of fuss, we take a fresh approach, whatever your circumstances

Indeed, shocking, I don't know which is worse, condemning people to a lifetime of usury or really bad spelling and grammar, hrm, probably the latter, what is this country coming to!

Right on BuyingBear - I feel like a fool.

But you're right, if they're going to ruin people you'd least expect them to do it in Queen's English and with a bit of style.

At least with the mafia you're entitled to a good meal.

The problem is, if they can't spell will they be able to calculate your mortgage correctly?

I'm sure they'll have no problem working out how much you owe them, down to the decimal point.

This seems to be the modern way, take a single word, like "earth" and trademark it. Then simple people can remember it. Use the word "sunny" or "sunshine" to justify the product, because that's the most important thing in your life. Have minimalist cartoon-style graphics, preferably with smiling bees or butterflies. Don't use wasps, however. Get some Z-list 'celeb' to put his name to it. The Z-list celeb must be 'fun', because fun is the second most important thing in your life after sunshine. The Z-list celeb must give a sample of his signature, to hint that they know his signature because he uses the product and 'signed up' to it.

All packaging and no substance, whatsoever.

Incidentally, do you think that Hall character has that big cheesy on his coupon all the time? I think it's as fake as a £7 note.

That'll be because of the pressurised sales techniques. Calling you back within an hour so you don't have time to change your mind. Your own personal advisor making it harder for you to say no to someone you've formed a 'relationship' with etc.....

Too many of us wander the modern world in a daze of vague incomprehension. It makes us vacuously accepting of lies and half-truths, and parlously slow to demand explanations when we find we have swallowed a fib.

This could easily be a description of the way the vast bulk of the populus view anything financial don't you think? Maybe this lack of a general understanding is what has got us to the point where people think it's ok to borrow vast sums to buy crappy, poorly built sh1tholes.
