I mean... it is what those images are made for still funny


ObjectiveLopsided

Maybe they even didn't know the meme.


Freedomsaver

It is almost fitting, even if unintentional. They use the picture for their services to plan your inheritance and testament... smile harold... smile.


fuedlibuerger

That's what I assume.


iCraftDay

If I worked there I would recommend using this image


Uncommented-Code

I guarantee you they did lol. This must have passed at least 10 pairs of eyes, I cannot imagine nobody didn‘t realise. I mean even Watson is posting harold memes on a regular basis.


rinnakan

They changed it when someone told them, so no they probably didn't know


CordialPython

For us who also don't know, care to explain?


Monkeywrench421

"Hide the pain Harold" is the guy on the left. He became an internet celebrity against his will due to a series of stock pictures, one where he is holding a mug and smiling to the camera. The smile doesnt look happy at all. It became a VERY popular meme and is to this day.


chipmaker75

He's now officially Urs Schmerz in this part of the world.


Liko2k

AKA Max Pain.

ElXToro

Search up Internet historian and the ted speech on Harold pain or sth


ObjectiveLopsided

Just a well-known meme of our friend Harald.


DiamondSTARNA

Boomers they are


Swiss_Reddit_User

I am determined to find one of these ads now.


jrit93

This is genius. For people who dont know the meme. No problem. For people who know the meme, fucking awesome. There really is no downside to this.


keep-d-change

This is probably not the image they expected to elicit... (https://imgur.com/a/Lh3Bg8J) But yet it's the first thing that comes to my mind.


XGC_ssb

Damn I want to see this ad irl so much

MFpterodactyl3

Freedomsaver

Wow... that was fast. Kinda silly... there was no need to take it down.


_Administrator_

He just found out what Mr. Vinzenz did with his money.


ours

And he's... trying to hide the pain from his wife.


x-winds

w00t_loves_you

MFpterodactyl3

Did they take it down already?? Nooo


c00kiem0nster24

Lol at the caption that just says "Paar"


pedrorodriguezmx

They know exactly what they doing 👌🔥


JohnLemmmmon

this is the easiest and cheapest way to make your ad be seen all around the world...


Xiaodier

Love it when they use the meme stock images, or other ones from that series. In my country there was a campaign to promote establishing a family/having children with the couple from the stock photo sequence with the meme where the guy is looking back over his shoulder at another woman while his gf (probably) is glaring at him. So yeah, it was a pretty ironic turn to promote families with \*that\* speciific couple lol

Xiaodier

Yup, the "In Hungary" part


ShowMeYourKitties86

Harold is our Hungarian national treasure.


x-winds

Oh! I just got back from Budapest! My third visit. Great city.


ShowMeYourKitties86

I'm glad you liked it. 😊❤️


martin9595959

Hahahahhahahah this, BY NO MEANS was an accident...


samaniewiem

Does it mark the official beginning of the Hungarian occupation of Switzerland? ;)


Werewolf_MF

best ad ever!!!


Jong-soo

They won’t suddenly stop buying those stock photos just because we saw the guy in a meme. Perhaps they even specifically did it for that reason.


AssociationOverall84

What does Harold have to do with this?


WathIfThatHappens

If you've ever tried working with Raiffeisen you know that this is the accurate image. "Hide the pain, hide the annoyance, don't get angry and scream on them."


Feschit

If you've ever tried working with ~~Raiffeisen~~ **any bank** you know that this is the accurate image. "Hide the pain, hide the annoyance, don't get angry and scream on them." FTFY


SpighettyPamadorow

This had me lol.


sorrikkai7

RelevantSeinfeldTime
