Lloyds - House in the Sky (2010), UK

RKCR/Y&R wanted to convey the flexibility of a Lloyds TSB mortgage to the customer. RKCR/Y&R did this by showing a flying house that happens to run into bad weather which they navigate through safely then emerge out the cloud to a sunny and clear sky. The conclusion being that it’s better to be flexible because you never know what is going to happen in life.

Nice. Their tagline bugs me though - why the ellipsis?

Homage to the late Herb Caen? :)

I think the ellipsis is to imply that your "journey" never ends. Well, not until you kick the bucket, anyway, but then they won't be interested in your business any more.

Every ad in this series (which has been running for years now) implies it's only a small episode out of the characters' lives, with lots of rather mysterious backstory and a clear sense of going on into the future. The very first ones were more obvious, centred around a journey on "the train of life" that's glimpsed in this one.

The ellipses work for me.
