Commercial Break: Tat's how banks actually look now!
We’re going 'bank to the future' today – four decades back to be perfectly honest with you. Legendary French mime artist Jacques Tati was hauled in by Lloyds Bank and paid a load of money to star in this chilling look at the bank of the future.
The idea is that banks would never turn into one of these automated hell-holes and there’d always be a friendly face there to talk to you and help you with your fiscal concerns.
Well fuck you Lloyds – you got that one disastrously wrong didn’t you? The ad looks EXACTLY like every high street bank in 2011. Yes, that’s right – ALL OF THEM. It’s disgusting is what it is.
And where’s Jacques Tati now? Dead since 1982, that’s where. The very same year that the first ATM appeared*. Wonder what Lloyds have got to say about THAT?
