Subsidise the athlete costs..... don't just advertise on the back of our expense and effort

Agreed

Yeah Spec Savers gave back, Standard Bank just make our bags/medals looks cheaper and give (in my opinion) nothing of value to the athlete.

Clearly done by a ad agency who has absolutely no idea what triathlon or an ironman is. Wouldn't even run that add for a 5km fun run.

The wedding advert is atrocious. Makes you just feel sorry for the lady that she is married to a demeaning, unsupportive jerk. I can just see her handing him the divorce summons on the finishing line.

 

The guy swimming is growing on me. He is having a hypothetical conversation with his daughter about quitting. Wants to be an example to her. 

 

I find the guy riding his tri bike with a Camelbak deeply offensive.

Start by proof-reading your press releases:

 

"Standard Bank hopes to grow the Standard Bank IRONMAN® South Africa events into a truly world class Pan Africa endurance events"

 

Also: no growing needed, these events are already worldclass. Add tangible value as pointed out above, not just advertisement garble...
