So, in some completely brain-dead attempt to attract a younger crowd to place their money with TD Bank they have taken their perfectly suitable TV ad featuring current spokespeople Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa and repurposed it into a badly “animated” video for YouTube.
A few questions for TD Bank and their ad agency:
1) Who the hell thought 20-somethings would be excited to see a video starring an old man and a MILF doing something other than having sex?
2) Who advised TD Bank to put this lame video up on YouTube? Not only has it got less than 500 views but it makes the bank look completely out of touch – the last thing they are trying to communicate to a young, web-savvy crowd.
3) Finally, if you want to convince young people to use your bank why not actually tell them the benefits instead of creating worthless song-and-dance?
