Adverts Yet Again

It's the new Halifax advert that's bothering me now. I've been annoyed by their use of their staff - who obviously work in a bank and not on a stage for a reason - for a while now, but the new one takes the biscuit.

Unfortunately, I can't find the damn thing online, so you're going to have to trust me on this. There's a girl from the Sheffield branch (can't remember her name) poncing around in some American street scene, singing a parody of Aretha Franklin's "Think". Lots of extras - who can dance far better - and lots of nice expensive CGI - including two animated skunks(?) - then, just when you think it can't get worse, fucking Howard appears.

"Dear Halifax, could you please stop using your staff in your adverts and get some people in who can actually sing and dance instead? Then you wouldn't have to spend as much money making the backgrounds so interesting that viewers don't look at your staff in pity."
