So, Australia’s Commonwealth Bank just celebrated its centenary, so it created this ad. The commentary goes:
I was born a hundred years ago.
I helped bring the world closer to home.
I saw men search for dreams at Broken Hill.
And watched my best mates leave.
It was like the world caught fire.
And then Victoria did.
But come what may, Australians always stood strong.
Like Don Bradman carrying an entire country on his shoulders.
Or Lance Hill’s great leap forward.
And me? I taught children to save.
And helped build homes. Millions of them.
I can’t believe how often I saw the impossible become possible.
Or hope become history.
I am Australian.
And I am your bank.
Let me know what you think.
