Halifax’s new TV commercial from adam&eveDDB, London, features Scooby-Doo and the Mystery Inc. Gang animated cartoon characters. In the spot--directed by Dom and Nic of Outsider, with VFX/post from The Mill London--Scooby-Doo and the Gang escape the clutches of a mummy by scooting into a Halifax bank branch. There the hapless heroes find out how Halifax rewards its customers with money back through everyday purchases.
Next Scooby-Doo and pal are at a restaurant enjoying a pizza; they’re about to tap into the Halifax reward program. But when Scooby-Doo hands over his Halifax debit card to pick up the tab, he’s confronted by the mummy waiter.
