…it’s the Washington Mutual ads. For those of you not in a WaMu banking area, they ran a series of ads where a comfortably dressed sharp-looking young black man was running things with his young crew, and all the stodgy old three-piece-suited white-guy bankers with all their old ways of doing things were locked in “the banker bin”.
So what would they be doing now? The hip young banker and his hip young ways seem to have destroyed the bank, to the point where they were subject to an emergency buyout by Chase. That bin full of stodgy bankers who were doing old-style banking things like not loaning money to people who couldn’t afford it, and by making money off of the interest from their loans rather than by selling investment loan bombs, turn out to have been the smart ones… but there they sit, helpless in the bin, as the hip young crew are overrun by the Chase Invaders.
