Are The “Bank Of America” ‘Says The Llama’ Cleverly Parodying The ‘Dalai Lama’?

Click to ENLARGE. Search the Web for more or swing by a “Bank of America” branch.


The basis of these ads, for the “Bank of America” mobile APP, is the notion of a Llama as a sage provider of wisdom.

When I saw a 5.5′ stand-up display ad at a “BofA” branch yesterday, which ended with a ‘punchline’ along the lines of “Says the Llama”, I was immediately struck that you could easily take that to be ‘Says the (Dalai) Lama‘.

Clever and cute.

I have no problems with it. I do not consider the Dalai Lama has infallible or even the nominal head of all the Buddhists around the World. Of late he has been saying some very strange things.

Just wondered whether YOU saw the Llama/Lama connection?

SMILE.
