Clash of the titans.

by Andrew MacGregor


moneysupermarket.com: “Monster” - 20s

Forget 'Godzilla vs. Kong' - Moneysupermarket have the Money Calm Bull versus, well, Unnamed Spiky Kaiju in this 20" ad. According to Matt Berry’s distinctive voiceover, the bovine has just saved £200 on his car insurance…precisely as a giant monster introduces its foot to a red sports car (complete with hanging bull decoration). As B*Witched once sang, "c'est la vie".

Despite being drenched in kaiju saliva, the bull remains stoic in circumstances that would faze most Hollywood scientists or military leaders. Combined with some neat creature design and background details like a nearby woman pushing a shopping trolley, it's another eye-catching prompt towards financial wellbeing.
