The 'Risk Never Sleeps' series of commercials were CLASSICS!!! We had a thread on them...probably on the old board - thanks for reviving this.
Except the 'old guy with the umbrella'...he bothers me...something just isn't right about him...

I liked 'Risk Never Sleeps'...until Citi ripped off the 'Never Sleeps' phrase and ran it into the ground in one ad!

Just like monster.com's "Can you hear me now?" ad ripped off by Verizon.  Some years back, there was a commercial with what looked like a take-a-kid-to-work day theme.  This little kid kept talking into a doctor's stethescope, asking, "Can you hear me now?"  I thought it was very funny.  Then Verizon got hold of it and killed it.

That "Never sleeps" ad is annoying, especially because the emphasis should be on whatever it is that doesn't sleep, not on the repetitive "doesn't sleep."

You 80's movie fans out there might recognize the guy with the bowler hat... It's Paul Freeman, who played Belloq in "Raiders of the Lost Ark." Wink
