I mean... it is what those images are made for
Maybe they even didn't know the meme.
It is almost fitting, even if unintentional.
They use the picture for their services to plan your inheritance and testament... smile harold... smile.
That's what I assume.
If I worked there I would recommend using this image
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.
They changed it when someone told them, so no they probably didn't know
For us who also don't know, care to explain?
"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.
He's now officially Urs Schmerz in this part of the world.
AKA Max Pain.
Search up Internet historian and the ted speech on Harold pain or sth
Just a well-known meme of our friend Harald.
Boomers they are
I am determined to find one of these ads now.
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.
This is probably not the image they expected to elicit...
But yet it's the first thing that comes to my mind.
Damn I want to see this ad irl so much
I saw it there too next to the train station or gas station

Did they take it down already!
Wow... that was fast. Kinda silly... there was no need to take it down.
He just found out what Mr. Vinzenz did with his money.
And he's... trying to hide the pain from his wife.
Is that an lol between their heads? I’m lol-ing at the lol! 😝
Ohh great find!
Hide The Pain Ueli.
Their (Raiffeisen) website where they use that image:
Did they take it down already?? Nooo
Lol at the caption that just says "Paar"
They know exactly what they doing 👌🔥
this is the easiest and cheapest way to make your ad be seen all around the world...
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
Yup, the "In Hungary" part
Harold is our Hungarian national treasure.
Oh! I just got back from Budapest! My third visit. Great city.
I'm glad you liked it. 😊❤️
Hahahahhahahah this, BY NO MEANS was an accident...
Does it mark the official beginning of the Hungarian occupation of Switzerland? ;)
best ad ever!!!
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.
What does Harold have to do with this?
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."
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."
This had me lol.
Saw the same in Interlaken, made chuckle
