..... that Howard guy with the glasses who sings on Halifax commercials?

I was actually interested in their 10% int savings account but I feel like that might be encouraging them to create more commercials featuring that annoying tosspiece with the Brummie accent.

:-D

One of my brother's friends is related to him I think, and generally the Brummie accent isn't too bad (it's less annoying than Welsh anyway) but he brings out it's worst side.

You never know, he might be a lovely guy :thinking: :friends:......but I can't leave the advert on it's so nails-down-the-blackboard irritating!!

I always switch channels in some sort of misguided hope that somehow Halifax will find out that ratings drop as soon as their ads are on and they'll scrap the idea altogether!! lol :roll:

Were you talking about me there or Howard ? :oops:

Tbh, I think the only commercials that I find more irritating than the Halifax ones are those ones for injury lawyers and ****** debt companies that they show on daytime TV.

The National Accident Helpline can kiss my **** and who runs a marathon in a suit for Christ's sake ?

The chinese guy has the biggest head in the world, that alone makes me despise him, what I want to know is how the hell are these people actually serving customers.

I did some consultancy for HBOS some years ago, and they are one of the most morally corrupt organisations on the high street.

They had an active campaign to stop small traders such as market stall holders, taxi drivers, small shop owners from setting up accounts, so they didn't have to deal with bags of coins

No matter how annoying it is at the end of the day the object is for you to remember the advert which you do so they are doing a good job right?

You're right they are *******s, I worked with the Abbey for a while part-time when I was in college processing paperwork for switcher applications and they purposefully made most of their's illegible in order to prolong the process, every other bank and building society was fully co-operative apart from them.

Yeah but it's had an adverse effect though, we may all be talking about it now but we're talking about how much we hate it and chances are that none of us will want to deal with them, but I do see what you mean.
