The guard wrestles for the suspicious backpack
CommBank has issued a terse apology for its London Olympics hoax bomb ad which it launched on YouTube last night.
CommBank pulled down the ad – featuring the company mascots tipping off a security guard about a suspicious backpack – earlier today. London’s 2005 suicide bombings the day after the city won the Olympics were carried out by terrorists with backpacks.
In a brief statement, the bank said:
“The Commonwealth Bank apologises for the online video released to its YouTube Channel.
“We acknowledge some concerns were raised and the material was withdrawn this morning.”
