BofA committed to Chicago, not its skyline

Bofachicago_2 Bank of America gets some stick from the Chicago Tribune this morning for running a new ad in which it promises “local commitment”—but shows a dated skyline. The photo in the ad shows the IBM building, the Wrigley Building, the Tribune Tower and the Sun-Times building—even though the latter was demolished a few years ago. Says a BofA rep: “We intend to have an impact on the Chicago banking landscape, but this was not what we had in mind. We’ll fix the ad.” Expect a poignant new song from Ethan Chandler shortly.
