New Halifax Advert

Recommended Posts

Same old sing along theme... but this time all the Halifax staff are dressed up as cowboys dancing around the Wild West.

It's almost as good as Abbey with their hot-air balloon house :huh:

Yep, it is really funny. What we really need are the lyrics.

Oh,show me a home with a 5 year fixed loan,

And a mortgage that's easy to pay (Yeehaa!)

In a short month or two, I'd be able to MEW

And spend like a king 'til I'm grey.

Home loan to arrange

Not too dear,just the interest to pay.

Where never is heard, "Interest Rates up a third!"

Prices never come down, so they say.

I saw it this evening. What a load of b@ll@x!

What on earth has teh wild west got to do with modern banking? Do Halifax seriously think they will attract and retain custom by advertising like that?

I say bring back Howard! He made me larf!

well actually....

I've just been checking out the details of the account after seeing the ad...was watching the scrolling smallprint and noticed that it didn't say anything about having to open a current account with them (as you have to do for all the other drip feed high interest accounts). Probably why it pays 3% less than some of the other drip feeds.

Anyway, decided I couldn't be a...d - it amounts to 5.6% net on an average balance of £1500, and £80 is not worth having to remember yet another password and id for.

Personally I prefer blatantly sexist adverts with girls in bikinis. I'd shift my account to the first bank to use some models in pants to punt their products.

Shakerbaby Bank account, anyone? :lol:

Research into Shakerbaby's avatars has lead to my current Sloggi "Short Winter" screensaver on my work PC....

the power of product placement.

Taking out a mortgage has become a foolish business. The best way to get a man to do something foolish is....

Halifax will soon see sense and drop their homoerotic cowboy tomfoolery for some Lithuanian girls in boyshorts. :rolleyes:

I've been rentin' salford streets so long

Renting the same overpriced dump.

I know every crack-den in these dirty sidewalks of Broughton

Where asbo's the name of the game

And council flats get burned away by the hoodies and dealers

Its been a load of trouble just finding'

A house i could reside in.

But I'm gonna live where the domestic fights are far from me.....

Like a mortgage cowboy

A loan on a mini or a leased 5 door mondeo

Like a MEW mad cowboy

Credit cards and approved letters from Banks I don't even know

And offers of unlimited loans...

Well, I really don't mind the leaking rain

And laminate can hide all the pain

But you're down when you're buying into the town, that's takin' your pay.

And I dream of the things that I'll do

With a that 2 bed semi in goole

Theres had to be a load of compromisin'

and a loan of false accounting.

But I'm gonna be where the hoodies are not robbing me...

Like a mortgage cowboy

A loan on a mini or a leased 5 door mondeo

Like a MEW mad cowboy

Credit cards and approved letters from Banks I don't even know

And offers of unlimited loans...

Like a mortgage cowboy

High HP on a mini or a leased 5 door mondeo...

Tie 'em in, crank it up,

Set 'em up, kick 'em out
