Local Man Finds Out Bank Isn’t That Boring After Commercial


A funny Super Bowl commercial leads to a unique debit card for one Amarillo man.

Amarillo National Bank may be boring but they are here to stay.

That was the message spread in their Super Bowl commercial and it is getting a lot of reaction.

“I loved the commercial and it made me laugh a lot, so it just occurred to me to email Amarillo National the day after and let them know they did a great job,” said Jacky Campbell an ANB customer.

Campbell loved the commercial so much he reached out to the bank to see if they were going to increase their advertising with the new slogan.

Now he has a new, custom debit card with it printed on it. 

“Boring as hell was very unique, we don’t usually do something that crazy but we wanted something to stick out among Super Bowl ads. It shows we are self-deprecating, we are funny and banking probably should be boring,” said William Ware, the president of Amarillo National Bank.

Ware says the commercial was something different for the company but they have had great feedback.

“Not only is it a very unique commercial but it was done locally but it is really funny and people like that about us. We are a local bank and we have always used humor in our commercials and it was neat to see some of the local spots in this shot so we are really proud of it, said Ware.

As for Campbell, he is looking forward to using his new card.

“I am looking forward to actually giving it to someone to run through instead of putting into the reader so I can see their reaction.”

Something else that was different about this ad, ANB used all local talent, including producers, actors, and directors for the commercial.

ANB will also give customized cards to any customer who wants them.

Ware says you just need to visit any branch or go online to upload whatever picture you want to be added to your card.
