Halifax Ad

Recommended Posts

What is it about banking ads? Whether it`s the latest Halifax "choir" ad, or Nationwide`s "isa, isa baby" ad or Stephen Merchants grating and overdone Bristolian accent for Barclays. They all make me act irrationally, desperately looking for the remote.

Maybe because in one way or another you're paying for them.

I would definitely agree that Halifax ads are among the most annoying. Do they just have an advertising budget they have to spend on "something"? It seems that way. Surely there can't be a huge uptake based on a a load of odd-looking people singing, badly? Maybe that Howard bloks is in charge of quality control these days.

Saying that though, the high-pitched singing / noise / not sure what that the Lloyds ads have been using for what seems like ages are something else again though. Presume this is aimed at the previously untapped cannine market?

But yes....effectively paying for this, whilst the retail banks are acting the way they are does smart

Linking songs or music to banking is totally wrong. I have many fond memories associated with some songs.. now they try to destroy my good memories by linking them to some products or services...

It gets even worse when they use classical music or jazz... Turning meaningful into meaningless...

That's why I avoid TV.

Its sickening. Theyre theiving bastards. I can deal with that. But telling me 'we care, we're there for you'

Absolutely disgusting.

It makes me want to actually go out and burn down their stupid taxpayer funded boiler rooms.

Its like something from a comedy film. Reminds me of Bill Murray in Kingpin. Except Bill Murray is funny. Coke snorting banksters are not.

The current crop are annoying, but here's an old school bank advert (with memorable song) that still makes me smile!

"It's not all work work work" :)

nearly as vomit-inducing as Julie Walters whoreing herself out for Lloyds TSB or that earlier one with a matronly-sounding home counties lady assuring the viewer of "sensible banking" :angry:

Totally agree - the most irritating of adverts, thinking their "kookiness" and "catchy tunes" will make banking "fun" ... c*nts. Should concentrate on how much money they've required to be bailed out and what charges they give to us.

Torch them.
