UPDATE September 12: Sportsbet.com.au have today challenged the Commonwealth Bank to settle the dispute around our parody ad by participating in a CANCAN dance off next Tuesday! View the ad below:
After kicking up a stink, the ads were removed from the social media platforms, but CAN they really do that?
We aren’t sure if they CAN, so the only way to settle this fairly is to have a winner takes all CANCAN dance off.
If the Commonwealth Bank win the fance off, sportsbet.com.au will agree to delete the parody ad, post the original ‘Ode to Can’ ad on its homepage for 24 hours and donate $50,000 to a charity of the Commonwealth Bank’s choice.
“We had a great response to our spoof ad and we think people should be able to see it online and have a laugh. A cancan dance off is a pretty fun way to settle our disagreement, but whether the Commonwealth Bank CAN step up to the challenge remains to be seen!” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
The challenge has been set to take place on Tuesday 18th September at a location of the choice of the Commonwealth Bank.
CAN the Commonwealth Bank find the courage to accept the CANCAN challenge?
To formalise the challenge, sportsbet.com.au have placed full page ads in several of Australia’s largest daily newspapers, and have organised for the sportsbet.com.au cancan dancers to perform in front of the Commonwealth Bank at 385 Bourke St, Melbourne at 10am Wednesday 12th September.
What do you think? Do you think our parody of the Commonwealth Bank ad should be banned?
