GALLERY 10: HSBC - Wedding, Retirement

Financial services clients are at last waking up to the fact that they need more creative and interesting advertising (see Most Talked About and Barclays in last month's issue). These ads parody the genre, using the usually tedious terms and conditions in an amusing and insightful way. Rather than pitching the bank in a lofty, unapproachable manner, it is presented as being down-to-earth, without being patronising. Believable performances and a witty voiceover add greatly to these humourous scenarios.
