Nordnet Bank Commercial Offers a Comically Transparent Look at Bank Commercials to Promote Their Transparent Banking

Nordnet, a bank based in the Nordic countries of Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden, has created a commercial that offers a comically transparent look at bank commercials to promote their transparent banking. The commercial features an actor who explains the fact that he is a paid actor and narrates every action he makes in the commercial to an absurd degree.

Nordnet has released two other commercials with the same actor in a similar comedic style. One commercial highlights that the actor can’t say Nordnet is, “The gratest [sic] place to save and invest in the world,” and the other commercial encourages viewers to trust random people with all of their savings.

Each one is coated in blood and gore, which will make your holiday tree more festive! Just don’t place your ThinkGeek Zombie Ornament Set under the mistletoe (they won’t kiss you, but they will try to eat your face).
