Get a grip.

TradingView: “They See Nothing” - 45s

British climber Leo Houlding stars in this gnarly piece of work for stock market trading website TradingView. Filmed at Malham Cove (recognisable to fans of both Harry Potter and The Trip), the ad sees Houlding visualise the eighty-metre-high climb from below and the torn skin/broken holds that may follow.

It's a useful, visually striking introduction to what the brand provide: enough online tools to give punters a semblance of control over what is still an expensive crapshoot. Furthermore, we imagine armchair investors will be chuffed to be compared to a bloke who free climbed El Capitan in Yosemite National Park.
