Club Class Bullshit

What is the secret ingredient for a mediocre bank advert?

A man in a hat? A nice shiny credit card?

No, nothing is more comforting in times of financial trouble than.. a cake and an airbed.

A lovely homemade cupcake (because you can't afford food anymore so you'll have to use the contents of the cupboard to supplement it) A water air bed (reminding you you'll never be going on holiday again, ever) a steering wheel from a car (that looks like a toy, since you had to sell your real car) and a lovely HSBC credit card that made all this misery possible.

I've lost count of the amount of times i've seen Cupcakes on bank adverts. Surely this doesn't sell bank cards, and if it does it shouldn't!
