As far as I know this will only apply to Dopers in the Winnipeg area but…
For a while now, ING Direct has been running commercials in Canada with some guy (and the latest one has a women) telling me about great it would be for me to bank with them. They have accents that I can’t place but seeing as ING is a Dutch company so I would guess that is the accent. Fair enough.
A Winnipeg credit union is now running radio spots that have a heavy scottish accent telling me about why the Winnipeg CU should get my money. WTF???
A Dutch bank commercial having Dutch accent is fine but how did Winnipeg get associated with a Scottish accent? Was there some marketing study that showed that people will deposit money if a foreigner tells them to? I don’t get it.
Has anyone else heard this spot?
