Fail ad #002

Winner of this week's "fail ad" award goes to Fairfax online and the NAB. When the stock market crumbles and we find out the value of everything is actually nothing, what do you do? Get another credit card!

The sad thing is that in reality this article and this ad are probably quite well suited. Bad taste, bad PR, good financial result. Banking is a dirty word.

Update (t+ 2mins): Yes, that's right, 2 minutes on, same article, new credit card! Below is the Citibank platnium, for all 2 people that have survived the financial crisis, nay, obliteration, unscathed.

Because of this, I am going to have to take the "fail ad" award off the NAB and hand it wholly over to Fairfax digital and their entirely crass online sales team and their bad taste. Congratulations!
