Two Confident Retirees & Their Pig

aka Mr. Boombastic Piggy

I love my husband and my husband LOVES this commercial. I could describe it to you but why bother? Just watch.

Two Confident Retirees Prepare for Their Retirement – Commercials – Chase

IT’S A PIGGY!!! As my husband states with joy in his voice “That is one sassy pig.” With that music in the background, how could it not be?

This is a brilliant commercial and whoever came up with it should be proud of themselves. Seriously proud. They should get a raise. Now. How can you resist and sassy pig walking to an “I’m a sex god” song? I can’t. Then we see the retirees – clearly they are hippies and they love their pig and why did you think they would have a dog or cat? It is fun to see these retirees in the heart of a corporate bank talking with a suited financial consultant. Note that at the end the piggy, or as I like to call him, Mr. Boombastic, is happily nesting in loving arms. Yes, Mr. Boombastic is so welcome in the bank. I mean they want the owner’s money!

I’m not a fan of big banks, but wow, I sure do love this add. It is funny and sweet and PIGGY!!! If you don’t laugh, well, what’s wrong with ya’? Every time Hubby and I see this on TV, we rewind our TiVo and watch it several times.

The version above is the one you will see broadcast. However I found the longer one which you can watch below. Different editing and more Mr. Boombastic time.

Oh and the song is “Boombastic” by Shaggy and you can listen to it below.
