a radio advert

A Mashreq Bank radio advert goes - "We do banking, you do Life"!!

Am not sure, as a customer, if I'd ever want to do life, in prison! :)

Who ever did the creative, probably should get life.

Maybe they should make me in charge of the lousy ad business we have in UAE.. I'm sure I'll do a good job..

No censorship please :)

Yeh I heard that one, and my response was the same. How terribly tacky and in poor tatse most of the adverts are.
There seems to be no class, or decency any more.
I feel so violated most days by the crassness and vulgarity which is being thrown in my face from morning to night, whether its the media or the people.
