The ad media has changed alot in this decades. Ogilvy and alot of other industry ad leaders has changed the face of popular media and marketing. I just wonder what the future would be like.

It is not a surprise that SBI has large number of ATMs in India. Now-a-days, one can use his/her ATM card in many ATMs maintained by other banks. Hence, the ads should rather focus on the differentiating factors of SBI that can please the customer. Possibly SBI or the ad agency thinks that SBI is facing identity crisis.
