GUEST,Taliesn BS: Terror At Thirty Thousand Feet (horror) (46) RE: BS: Terror At Thirty Thousand Feet (horror) 09 Oct 02

" I just saw a new commercial for some credit card company and practically jumped out of my seat! It features a bunch of white "monsters" attacking some people ......."

Yeah it's for Bank One which has been running this theme of having some horde of nasties acting as the bane's of other credit card services; the best of which was perhaps the first one which showed a medieval Northenr Euro-horde, reminiscient of "Braveheart", surrounding a presumably doomed victim until he reveal's his Bank One card and every last one of this maruanding horde just heaves a chorus of disappointed moans and groans for being cheated of their conquest with the recurrent punchline of a loan barbarian looking directly at you demanding "And what's in your wallet". It's a screamer right out of Monty Python.

But this new one , with the marauding flock of Yeti , has one delivering that last punchline in a particularly jarring manor as it dog-sleds for a close-up. Reminded me more of Himalayan Moorlocks from that early 1960's version of H.G.Wells "The Time Machine".

I guess Madison Ave. is geting closer to the Halloween marketing season. I mean it must be Halloween because the stores are beginning to display the Christmas decorations.
