I must be horribly jaded. If I saw an obvious marketing stunt consisting of a set up that required me to walk through a ridiculously long line when there was no line at all, I'd probably pass by like it was a homeless person. Oops, my bad. That's not the best analogy but you get my meaning.

However, when regular, non-jaded, non-marketing people are presented with the same scenario...just to get a bag of junk food...uh...excuse me...Fantastic Delights, it seems they'll wait forever.

What do banks, yard sales and creepy Chucky-like dolls have to do in common? Nothing unless you are Colorado-based FirstBank. With help from TDA_Boulder, the bank is out with a super creepy ad in which a guy finds a doll at a yard sale and the old lady who's selling it says he can have it for free.
