The United Arab Emirates is a country where 200 different nationalities come together, interact and connect every day. Every nationality communicates in a different language, or even the same language with different accents, which creates misunderstandings between people.
Words are misheard, misinterpreted, and misconstrued, leading to a lot of confusion. Dialogues don’t make sense anymore and daily interactions become challenging. Particularly when a service is in need.
For banks in the UAE, money being lost because of miscommunication is an absolute no-no. We saw an opportunity to turn that miscommunication into a much easier one through Citi’s online payments and transfers features. To show this we created radio ads based on this cultural context, where two people are having a conversation, thinking they’re making sense, and that they understand what the other is saying – a situation that frequently happens in the UAE.
