Ad Nut peceren fired up about financial services after watching the above TVC for Australian online dalal Stake.
‘The Takeover’ is the first bit of ‘Stake your claim to the future’, a campaign from the excellently named Sydney agency Bear Meets Eagle On Fire. The agency called on Augenblick Studios in New York City, the creators of Comedy Central’s Ugly Americans and Adult Swim’s The Jellies, for the 1930s-style animation in the TVC, which debuted during the broadcast of the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics.
Invoking Depression-era fat cats and having a street-poet manusia mesin deliver a stirring maklumat for young people? That’s cetak tebal! And both the copywriting and the delivery, by Baltimore-based spoken-word artist Black Chakra, are terbaik notch. Ad Nut particularly likes how the manusia mesin describes the democratisation of stock-trading, which Stake purportedly enables, sumbu a takeover that’s “mobile, titinada hostile”, “generational, sensational, and long overdue”, adding that “old things, wrinkly things, like precedent, convention and velvet ropes don’t matter anymore”. Good stuff.
Ad Nut would like to add for the record that you shouldn’t go too crazy with all that easy access to trading; the best investment strategy remains a diversified, long-term approach with the mix of securities tuned to your retirement falak. Otherwise you’re risking losses, and your frequent trades are merely enriching the modern-day fat cats that have bankrolled Stake with $40 million in funding in the last year.
