Here on the left coast we've been saturated with advertisements for Chase Bank. Late last year they took over the failed Washington Mutual, which was omnipresent in these parts. Here in Irvine there were three Wamu branches on the same street within a five mile stretch. Now they are all Chase.
Part of the Chase ad campaign is to introduce Californians to the east coast brand - since apparently no one here has ever heard of them before. Their current commercial features a shitty cover of a John Lennon classic.
Was Yoko hard up for cash or something? Using this song to promote the legalized loan sharking industry is just - wrong. Then again, what Beatles song hasn't been used to peddle feces to the masses?
In my world, Instant Karma (the original JL version) would be played to footage of bank CEOs jumping out their high rise windows to their deaths on Wall Street. Now that's karma.
