Collecting grossly inappropriate Eastern European advertisements is one of my long-time hobbies.
Yes, it is a bit like shooting fish in a barrel, but hey, it’s more fun than collecting stamps.
You may remember the billboard I saw in Slovakia last year.
It featured a nude woman with no pubic hair with a slogan that read: “Have you been neglecting your front year lately?”
It was, naturally, an ad for a hardware store.
Well, I think I can top that one today.
Straight from prime time Czech television comes this gem:
A young woman on the screen is having an orgasm for about ten seconds. You are not sure what’s happening. Has my TV accidentally switched to a German porn channel?
No, no, no.
Shortly, you find out it’s an ad for banking. For student accounts, to be precise.
The message is this: You wish your “first time” was as good as your first bank account.
The bank account package, by the way, is called G2. Students thus have their own banking G-spot in each branch of Komercni banka. Quite handy, eh?
The ad comes (literally) in two variations. One features a woman.
The other one features a man:
And, I must admit, they do look like they are enjoying their transactions very much.
I have got to talk to my bank about upgrading my package. I had no idea banking has evolved so much in the last few years.
See, the Wall Street guys aren't completely useless.
