I mean, it must be – otherwise nakedly encouraging people to overextend themselves on credit, à la the Credit Expert advert, would be completely irresponsible and reprehensible, wouldn't it?
Look at that guy! He's well wealthy! He has a massive house, a creepy butler, something made from solid gold (I don't know what, I'm generally cooking with my back to the TV whenever this ad comes on) and ice from the Sea of Tranquility WHICH DOESN'T EVEN EXIST. But wait a moment – his secret is not that he's a Russian 'oligarch' / mafia boss, or an oil magnate, and has piles of money sitting around, his secret is that he's got the best credit rating in the world. OMFG! That house and the butler and the gold and the impossible ice has all been paid for on the never-never! Does that mean I can have a massive house and a butler and some gold and some pretend Moon ice if I stick it all on my credit card? Cos buying tons of stuff we couldn't afford was totally not one of the things that got us into this shitty economic mess in the first place.
Everyone round mine for cocktails made with you-know-what.
