Lloyds For Your Next Step

Lloyds Bank has launched a new commercial featuring the iconic black horse. At the heart of the Lloyds For Your Next Step campaign is a 60 second film, shot in super slow motion, where we see the black horse dramatically galloping through real life next step scenarios, such as the birth of a child, a marriage proposal, starting and finishing at school, or a funeral. At the end of the film each of the scenes then returns to real time as we see each step unfold. Lloyds Bank is here to help customers feel financially confident as they take or face their next step in life. Whatever your next step, we’ll be by your side. “This is real life. But none of us is standing still. We are about to take the next step. For your next step we’ll be by your side”.
