Give Howard a slap!

You've probably all seen the new "Bollywood" style Halifax advert by now. Quote "You're gonna find our range of loans so sexy." What? Don't be so stupid. Lara, 22, from Brighton is sexy, loans are boring. Someone please give that Howard a slap. Loans are not sexy!

    Yes, I quite agree. I can't say I have ever been turned on by the thought of a loan!

    Correct, but the ad has caught your attention like many other peoples, which is why the ad has done what it set out to do which was to promote Halifax :)

    He's so much of a celeb, Howard still works in his branch which is in Halifax or Bradford or something...

    It is if you use the loan to buy a flashy sports car!!!

    True! :lol: :lol:

    I think their ads, especially older ones, are funny and an easy laugh.

    As Becky rightly said, they have captured your attention and made you remember the firm, so if you need a loan, you might decide to pick up that phone... :p

    :p nope, and no-one wants to come here either...

    Never seen him in any of the Halifax branches, but there are sooo many I could just have missed him. Or theres head office, or the Dean Clough bit, or the computer centre. Maybe he's gone into hiding after hearing what people think of the adverts!

    I think he's fun though. :D
