Aw, you should have played with the taglines more! Don't get lazy and just change the word on the dial. Sheesh!

These ads suck on their own merit, not necessarily because ACCOUNT is spelled wrong.

That's Canadian spelling.

Canadians, such as myself, spell "account" as "account".

except the "acount" mistake, it's a very nice idea on such a subject (I mean you could do better, but then no company would do it anyway

Sorry guys. Pre-release artwork was mistakenly submitted to AOTW.
Will resubmit typo corrected version and hope Ivan will indulge me.
We did catch the spelling error - and it did run with the correct spelling. i.e. Account.
