Another Week, Another Insipid Investment Firm Animal Ad.

(click ad, scanned from Forbes) No, but wait—these idiots are headquartered in South Africa, so they had to show a wild kingdom visual, right? Perhaps, though, they should have found a stock photo of a zebra that's actually on its front feet so's it matched up with their imbecilic say-nothing headline. Note that they've register-marked their boundary-pushing tagline "Out of the Ordinary." Stripey here joins the Investment Company Ad Zoo along side the bears and bulls and lions and rhinos and horsies.

i read the headline too fast & it came out "Firmly on the wrong foot".

Investec showed growth during the time when your American banks were closing it's doors and ruining lives - despite what you claim to be sub-standard advertising...

Just a thought, use it, don't use it.
