Bank of America, MBNA "One Bank" video

The video I posted last week of the Bank of America and MBNA song "One Bank" (click here to watch it) made it all the way to VH1's "Best Week Ever" and "The Soup" on E. That didnt take long.

Here are the lyrics for you.

is it even better
now that we are the same
two great companies come together now
mbna is boa

now it's one bank
one card
one name that is known all over the world
one spirit
we get to share it
leading us all to higher standards

do you like the cowboys
or your university
do you like the yankees
or is nascar more your speed
well its your choice
your right to pick a card that shows
your heart and your pride

we are one with affinity
and we will carry each other
carry each other
one

have you come to meet ????
have you come to meet liam mcgee
have you heard about michelle shephard
she is leading the team in the northeast

and we've got bank one on the run
what's in your wallet? it is not capital one ...it's us
so which card are you?
integration has never had us feeling so good
and we will make lots of money
forever i can sing ... about trust, teamwork and doing the right thing
we will live out our core values
while the competition crawls
cause they want what we have got
but it is only here at bank of america

one bank
one card
one name that is known all over the world
one heart filled with spirit
we feel it
we share it

one bank working everyday
to bring higher standards
higher standards
one
we are one
we are one
we are one bank

The range of comments I've received is phenomenal.

Let's not ignore VISA. My observations on Visa's new "Life Takes Visa" Campaign: Paradox in Advertising.

That's quite incredible. You've crossed the bridge. You've fallen off the wrong side of the fence. Your balls have swung to the other trouser-leg.

You are now a truly terrifying blog, complete with banal misguided commenters. The kind that feel that it's appropriate to comment on the quality of the original song. My My, Doc Sherman, it's a whole new world out there. I love you. May I tag along?

The Nix.

It is even better
Now that we’re the same
Two great companies come together
Now, MBNA is B of A

And it’s one bank
One card
One name that’s known all over the world
One spirit
We get to share it
Leading us all to higher standards

[ooohh, mmmm]

Do you like the cowboys?
Or your university?
Do you like the Yankees?
Or is NASCAR more your speed?
Well it’s your choice
Your right
To pick a card that shows
Your heart and your pride

We’re one with affinity
And we’ll carry each other
Carry each other
One

Have you come to meet Bruce Hammonds
Have you come to meet Leah McGee
Have you heard about Michelle Shepherd
She’s leading the team in the Northeast

And we’ve got Bank One on the run
What’s in your wallet? It’s not Capital One
It’s us, so which card are you?
Integration’s never had us feeling so good
And we’ll make lots of money, forever I can sing
About trusting in teamwork and doing the right thing
We’ll live out our core values
While the competition crawls
‘cause they want what we have got
But it’s only here at Bank of America

One bank
One card
One name that’s known all over the world
One heart , filled with spirit
We feel it, we share it

One bank working everyday
To bring higher standards
Higher standards
One
We are one, yeah
We are one
We are one bank

[standing ovation]

Hi. I should say your blog is very interesting. Also I think it is very informative. I have been looking for a good band and could not decide what to choose. Just as I stopped my choice on Capital One Bank I bumped into this great site www.pissedconsumer.com and your blog as well. Now I can safely say I will not have any business with this bank.

I can't believe it making a song for Bank Of America, excuse me because I think this is something ridiculous, poor people who work there because sometimes they're also forced to do stupids things like those.
