When an ad features a man in a pensive squatting pose, you have to expect people’s minds will make the correlation to another kind of act that takes place when one assumes this position.
To put it simply, Chartered Banker in the UK signed off on an ad where a giant man in a suit looks as if he’s about to take a dump on the city of London.
But have a look and decide for yourselves:
The company, an organisation that helps bankers work towards their professional qualifications, has kicked off its annual search for its Young Banker of the Year.
Unfortunately, that involved this particular ad, which appeared across London’s tube network, and now has begun cropping up on Twitter.

#cbriseabovetherest either a brilliantly strategised campaign or the CD, designers & client were horrifically inebriated on signing this off

There has been no response from Chartered Banker, except to say interest in its Young Banker of the Year is strong. And of course more merciless mocking…
