One of the world’s largest banks has released an advert for a checking account suggesting to buy rolls of film with any savings made when signing up. We’re totally ok with that.
Spotted in the wild by #BelieveinFilm photographer KristenWithACamera the commercial by Santander Bank in the UK appears on the side of a shelter and makes no mistakes on how to spend all that extra cash.
“Buy a vintage camera. Spend your monthly fee on film.”
Featuring a mocked up film camera, most likely a
Nikon FM2 (vintage camera collectors, please feel free to comment and correct us) with its badge removed, the advert isn’t about film photography at all, but rather a lure for new customers wanting to switch checking account.
We wonder how much film you’d get with your “monthly fee”?
Correction: Thank you Levi Cupedo for informing Phogotraphy that the camera in question is in fact a Canon FT QL.
