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.
