I'm talking about a serious issue here; the Halifax adverts. If you're from the UK, you will know what I'm on about - those shitty fucking altered-lyrics-advertisements. And that annoying man who has actually done interviews - what a joke, a talentless banker does interviews because he sings for his company and actually works there. Wow what a story, I thought he had the potential to be a MP.

If we all work together and switch your bullshit Halifax bank accounts to Barclays then maybe I don't have the misfortune of listening to these awful amendments of popular songs with lyrics that are relevant to banking. They clearly think this promotional method is working which is why they spend thousands making more adverts that annoy me. So stop this by switching your Halifax accounts and help bring down this smug prick:

I agree the adverts are ****ing annoying but if we all switched wouldn't the lack of customers just make them advertise more?

Bold1: OMG Barclays advert!!!!!!!!111!!!!

Bold2: So what you're saying is if we all pull together and do this it will stop them making adverts that annoy you, therefore everyone who has a Halifax account should switch to help you.
Regardless of amounts of interest ect, they should change their accounts in the desperate pledge to make your life a little bit better even though less customers will probably mean more adverts to get them back and the logical thing to do would to have everyone in the county get a Halifax account so advertising wouldn't be necessary.

Ps, this wouldn't have anything to do with the guy being black, would it...?

Woke up this morning, feeling fine
We've got a current account that'll blow your mind
We give you 60 times more like these others could
Oh yeah
Something tells me you're into something good
(Something tells me you're into something good)

We're the bank that gives it's customers a hand
Join and take your head out the sand
And you get 60 times more like you should
(You get your 60 times like you know you should)
Something tells me your into something good
(Something tells me we're into something)

Our credit interest won't let you down
If I'm telling you a lie then my name ain't Brown
Our customers get extra and you know that it's true
We like to make a song and dance over you

Something tells me we're into something

Howard Brown doesn't actually work for Halifax any more, he is "his own business", so to speak. Halifax have to pay him to visit branches etc.

How do I know? My brother-in-law is manager of a Halifax branch (Ripon to be precise, I think anyway) and worked at Harrogate when he visited.
Apparently he is also MASSIVE.

The old advert was racist (to a certain degree).

I think it was the one with the fat woman singing.

There was a bit where she walked past this row of dudes who were having their shoes cleaned whilst reading newspapers (which they then lower and sing along). Every single one of the shoe-shiners was of an ethnic minority. All of the people sitting there were white guys in suits and ties.

Then change the station. Complaining to a bunch of indifferent people will get you nowhere.

The ads seem to be working; they get people talking about the company. Any recognition can be good recognition for a business. So get mad at a company for effective advertising if you want, but you should recognize that them making an ad that pisses you off is not going to be bad for them in the long run (or in the short one for that matter)

So you are too stubborn to change a radio station for a minute while an annoying commercial is playing? Maybe branch out and check out different types of music?

Its no use talking with someone that stubborn
