This montage of bank TV ads chronicles the shift from old white men in ties, speaking directly to the camera, oozing old-world respectability in an effort to earn your trust – with a sprinkling of the old-west featuring the Wells Fargo stage coach – to ethereal, global images emphasizing the vast reach and interconnectedness of 21st century money markets. The clip featuring Samuel L Jackson and a cenetaur is particularly absurd in hind-sight. Enjoy!
