The Current Account Switch Guarantee guy is back with some more smooth moves. Still in his natty brown suit, he encounters and charms a range of people as he bops along to a very British interpretation of the Shaft theme song. This ad is very similar to the first in the campaign and suffers from the same issues - given that it has nothing to sell - but it's pleasant nonetheless.

and that last line is a bit too close for comfort to the last line in sea biscuit, no?

It's very nice of Engine and Peter Cattaneo to combine forces to bring us this rather sweet (and very English) take on the theme from Shaft but - as is often the way with commercials funded by bodies that have nothing to sell - it's a bit pointless. It takes nothing away from the execution but it's almost impossible to imagine this fuelling anyone's desire or willingness to switch bank accounts.
