Saw this ad on a bus stop in town. What nonsense. ‘Diversity’ exposing itself as mere consumerism. Ancient and profound cultures are reduced to products casually tossed into the same shopping trolley. The real message here is culture doesn’t matter, only the global economy.

And yes. We are an island.

Haven’t seen it but it would have made me angry if I had. I agree - whilst the good intent was there, there would have been many far better ways to express a diversity of culture without reducing the cultures to their stereotypical symbols

It should come as no surprise that companies will pander to the snowflake mentality for profit, I don't blame them. If people are foolish enough to be swayed to bank at HSBC following an advert with no financial incentive for using their service they deserve all they get.

It's just an advert, lol. I guess it's got a nice sentiment. I've never seen that advert.

The sentiment is not 'nice'. As OP said, its an attempt by a multinational monopoly bank to ride the political flavour of the month; diversity and cultural relativism in order to generate profit from interest on consumer loans. This is peak capitalism and it is psychological heroin.

A company is using an advert to generate profit?

I still like the sentiment of the ad.

How is there sentimentality in the generation of profit? The advert is neoliberal propaganda. Please don't be fooled into thinking HSBC care about any 'humanitarian' efforts which they espouse to support.

Pushing multiculturalism annoys me. The bad grammar enrages me. Who wrote that drivel?

I don't think HSBC actually care about all that stuff. The advert is nice, especially the video one.

Why not criticise globohomo whenever possible? This liberal capitalist elite is maintaining the shopping/fornication status quo through psychological advertising, and somehow ordinary people on a forum criticising this is somehow overblown or sensational?
