Boycott Capital One bank for putting “Ole’s Moving Company” on van instead of “Ovie’s” in commercial

October 3, 2010

Two weeks ago I noticed a commercial starring Donovan McNabb and Alexander Ovechkin.  It’s about Ovie moving McNabb’s stuff into town.  The problem is that at the beginning of the commercial the moving van says “Ole’s Moving Company” instead of “Ovie’s.” They misspelled the name of the best player in Caps’ history.  I can just imagine the ad person who did the ad.  Would you do that to LeBron James?  He probably remembered “Olie” in the back of his mind from Olie Kolzig being the Caps’ most popular player for several years.

Anyway, it’s an inexcusable mistake.  I just assumed they would redo the commercial – they should have been able to redo the first two seconds of it.

So people should boycott Capital One Bank.  Also, their logo and the font on their signs looks amateurish and bad.  Chevy Chase had a nice local feel to it.  I talked to someone who worked for Capital One and she said since they have primarily been a credit card company, they’ve been scrambling to hire people who know mortgages and banking, etc.
