    Those Capital One credit card commercials

    Discussion started by Poop Man Bob - Nov 14, 2004

    So the commercial is always some version of this: Bob/Jane wants to use their credit card, but Jane/Bob mentions how high the rates are. Cue wild viking men screaming and running at Bob and Jane with the intention of killing them. Bob/Jane then mentions that they're using the CapitalOne credit card with the low fixed rates, thus making the vikings stop at the last second. Splash the rates and credit card on the screen, then end it with a viking asking "What's in your wallet?"

    I'm confused. What's the message here? That vikings will kill you if you use credit cards with high rates? That the rates are "killer?" That vikings are credit card rates?



    Here's the idiotic opinion of an angry white female:
    Uhhh, no.

    In summary: more like Crapital One. LOLOLOL

    another fine example of why credit cards are A) bad and B) confusing as fuck.

    i mean who reads that much into an advert? especially an american. a simple reading is that they are trying to appeal to their target audience - white america. now, white america doesnt like to see anything other than white america? get it?

    "Commercial opens with Machete-wielding Watutsi tribesmen in full native dress attacking a carvan loaded with U.N. food supplies for starving children. Wild-eyed raid commander says "What's in YOUR armored car?"

    me too... i like it.

    as for the commercials... they're basically just saying that unless you have Capital One you're gonna be killed by high interest rates, personified by angry mobs of vikings. that's advertising for ya... they managed to get the commercial stuck in your head if nothing else.

    commercials are made to make people think about a
    product after is has been introduced through the commercial
    itself. i say, it did its job...for you at least
