Ant and Dec star in hilarious spoof banking ad
| 4th January 2020
The I’m a Celebrity stars launched a new bank earlier this year, taking the market by storm with a novel brick subscription service and Mini Mocha saving plans.
But they could find themselves in hot water after the Bank of Antandec ran into legal issues.
Footage of a press conference has been released in which the founders address accusations of plagiarism around the similarity of their logo to that of Santander.
They claim their logo features a baguette, rather than a flame, saying that until recently they had never heard of the “so-called bank” in question.
It will form part of a new ad, which launched on 4 January, with a message from Santander that while they can’t predict the future like Stan the Smartbot, they can offer customers some certainty with fixed rate mortgages for up to ten years.
Ant & Dec said: “It’s been really fun getting back into the world of the Bank of Antandec.
In June 2019 Santander UK announced a multi-year partnership with Ant & Dec – presenters of Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, Britain’s Got Talent and I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! – to act as brand ambassadors for the bank.
