roblem with this Halifax advert and it's causing much amusementHalifax has tapped into our love of nostalgia outside Walthamstow Central tube station in London with their latest advert - a giant billboard featuring Top Cat. Its advertising services for home buyers, but has caused much amusement online after one eagle-eyed passer-by pointed out a funny fact about the retro cartoon. See, it seems strange that Halifax might put a picture of a cat who
doesnt exactly scream luxury home buyer to promote their services... Yes, as this Twitter user points out, Top Cat did live in a bin. While some people pointed out that the advert is in London and a bin is probably all residents can afford, others said that perhaps thats the point of it - he needs to upgrade his home. Another questioned their choice of poster boy... Whatever the reason for their decision, its fair to say the advert has worked - its been retweeted over 2,000 times and sparked a huge conversation on the social network. poll loadingWhat do you think of this Halifax Top Ca六合王特码论坛308888 t advert?500+ VOTES SO FARIts geniusIts a big mistake A spokesperson for Halifax said:“We did a l

using Top Cat and his gang and in a serious category dominated by ‘slice of life’ advertising, the introduction of characters from popular culture sets up apart from others. We’re looking at other characters to feature in future advertising. “No other bank could run th
