The First National Bank – Dumpster Ad

Perhaps the most unusual media placement for a bank ad ever — inside the lids of garbage cans.

Chase – Phone Tree

The copy says that “using Chase by Phone is easier than ever.” That may be, but the flow chart screams of confusion, frustration and lots of button-pushing.
