Butcher in ANZ Chase commercial

The commercial shows an overworked, stressed banker from another bank going to great lengths to avoid business people who are trying to get a hold of him, including a butcher who says he has not returned his calls. A high-energy chase scene ensues, with the banker pursued by a group of small business owners. The advertisement ends with a crash tackle and the discovery of an accessible ANZ small business specialist. “Getting hold of a small business expert at your bank shouldn’t be hard”.
