“TSB: The Story” as the advert is named. But what’s the real reason behind the TSB resurrection? Its a government condition that after bailing out Lloyds TSB in 2008 part of the bank needed to be sold off… Was that too hard a sell? Never mind create an advert drowned in nostalgia and the public will flock to it. Oh the good old days before the welfare state….
Another example of an excessive advert from Banco Sabadell a Spanish bank. Spain’s jobless rate falls for first time in two years to 26.3% down from a record 27.2% in the first quarter. The recession is still strangling Spain and banks have money to waste on adverts.
And finally RBS’s sickly sweet offering.
