Chasing the Douchebag Dollar

In what pestilent boardroom in what circle of hell does it seem like a good idea to advertise a bank by showing whiny yuppie tourists complaining to a peasant campesino about their investments?

Just bafflingly, cluelessly offensive.

How do you stop worrying about your investments? Bitch about them in front of the locals until FARC kidnaps you, you idiots.

Yeah, that ad always makes me roll my eyes as well.

At the same time, I roll my eyes at the investment bankers who are blithely even now telling you how to invest, when they're the same people who never saw the meltdown coming and are whingeing themselves about how suddenly they need billions of taxpayers money for their own bottom line.

This while I look at my pension plan which has me at less money than I had a year ago this time, despite my contributions.

Worry dolls would be more useful than their advice apparently.
