Annoying Nationwide Adverts

Recommended Posts

I beeeeeeeeeeeelllllliiiiiiiiiiiiiiveeeeeeeeeeee in uuuuuuuuu

Argh, these appear to be on all the time at the moment. Annoyingly it can be on TWICE in one advert break, same music but different content.

The advert is probably paid for by the Fixed repayment mortgages.

Bit like the TSB ones, all touchy feely 'a suit that fits'

MAYBE IF YOU CHOPPERS HAD LEFT ALONE THE NOBLE INSTITUTION THAT WAS THE TRUSTEE SAVINGS BANK TO START WITH WE WOULD STILL HAVE A WORKING BANKING SYSTEM

Why do banks advertise? They don't compete on price, quality of diversity of product offering.

The Halifax and Co-Op ads are also dreadful.

A triumph of marketing over substance.

"The Co-Op. Good with drugs and incompetent fake vicars."

I don't know why you lot insist on watching the brainwashing machine. Every minute carefully orchestrated to give you some short term pleasure whilst carefully mixing in state propaganda.

The TV is on in the Gym and often showing the lunchtime news when I visit, I cant hear it but see the images they are portraying. Saying one thing and showing images portraying what they really want you to believe. Red for house prices going down, green for up etc. Politicians of all parties wearing their colors, russians always pictured with weapons, it's all there in the images, what they are telling you is a different message.

NLP.

The tagline of the advert is: 'we think it's people that make the world go round, not money'. How very socialist of them! ;)

That's not socialism, it's sociology. The purpose of money is to get other people to do things for you. No need for money if you're stranded alone on a desert island.

I thought the purpose of money was exchange of service/goods and a storage of value. It allows us to trade are wares.

I also thinking the same thing earlier, there is masses of financial services advertising and why? They don't need to advertise, the money should be put to better use.

Once you base your economy heavily on financial services you have serious problems, banks are there to oil the cogs of the economy, not suck the life out of it.

That advert annoys the hell out of me! Nationwide used to be a great BSoc. Free visa/debit card use worldwide, low or no charges for things banks charge, tagline was: "To avoid banks charges avoid banks" Or something like that. Now they are behaving exactly like a banks and they have played a large part in ramping hpi.

I now detest Nationwide and always make a point of voting against all resolutions and reelections of the board

My pet hate at the moment are the multiple smug Rightmove ads I walk past coming out of the tube every day. The worst of the lot is

save on
my commute,
under 10 minutes
to the office,
walk to work
happy

On days when I've left home at 5am, I am quite tempted to deface it.

"Nationwide....the Landlords' Friend"

"Paying ordinary savers below inflation to lend it out cheaply to landlords to farm you or your children."

Building tomorrow's society today.

They used to be the saver's friend. Their best deal is currently a 1.65% three year fix, so not anymore.

There are great dramas and comedies on.

I don't know why "you lot" as you put it, watch adverts. I have a PVR. They are quite common these days. I FF through every single ad break. Everything is a recording (mostly set up yonks ago, no babysitting required). Nothing is "channel surfed". Live TV doesn't exist in this house. And I haven't watched an advert live at home since 2001.

People at work laugh about meerkats and things as if they are "general knowledge" but they aren't, they are for the sheeple that lap up what the advertisers want them to, not even realising that to discuss these things later with peers is an essential part of the bloody marketeer's campaign planning! I look back blankly as I've never EVER seen those things. Why would anyone willingly give up hundreds of hours of their own precious free time every year by watching ads?

I was probably an early adopter of PVR in the UK at least, don't use it any more. Can't even be bothered with the bits between the adverts.
