TDA Boulder promotes the convenience of FirstBank’s Anywhere Account with a new 30-second broadcast spot featuring a guy and his self-driving car.
“I like easy. That’s why I got this self-driving car. And why I signed up for the FirstBank Anywhere Account” he says from the backseat of the vehicle. Unfortunately for him, the car isn’t as smooth a ride as anticipated. It beeps in response to a basketball rolling into the street, but runs it over anyway. And when the car comes upon a pedestrian at a crosswalk, the response is…unexpected. The over-the-top humor is meant to highlight FirstBank’s “Easy Should Be Easy” tagline but is perhaps a bit too much of an exaggeration to adequately drive home its point.
The spot will run in Colorado and Arizona, mostly during prime, late night and sports programming on major networks and cable. It is supported by two Spanish-language 15-second spots, which will run on Telemundo and Univision. The campaign also includes outdoor, radio, print and paid social components.
