Allied Irish Bank (GB) came to Rothco looking for a campaign that would cement their position in the UK financial sector as the specialist business bank. We needed to show the benefits of a bank with focussed initiatives and the importance of a specialist bank for business customers.

Transforming the shop overnight, the new meaty laundry service was aptly renamed ‘Clean Cuts’. Shocked, confused and bemused customers were quite expectedly baffled when they arrived the next day to pick up their dry cleaning, only to be met by a butcher selling sausages and steaks alongside their shirts.
The 2 minute online film (and 30” cut down) seeks to demonstrate that in business, being focussed pays and that the same should apply to your business bank.
