Advert: Lloyds Bank – 250 Year Anniversary
Music: Birdy – Wings (Acoustic)
Lloyds Bank, founded in Birmingham in 1765, celebrates its 250-year anniversary with this new “Horse Story” TV ad featuring the iconic black horse. The ad aims to show how the bank has been by customers’ sides “through good times and bad” (the bad presumably including the recent taxpayer-funded bailout). The ubiquitous-sounding soundtrack is an acoustic version of Wings by Birdy, a song from her 2013 album Fire Within. Real name Jasmine Lucilla Elizabeth Jennifer van den Bogaerde, Birdy is from Lymington in Hampshire. Her music previously featured in a very popular trailer for the ITV drama Broadchurch. The acoustic version of Wings has now been released as a single, and you can download it from Amazon or iTunes.
