Announcer: Is there any safe place to put your cash?

[ dissolve to banking personnel meeting with new clients ]

Announcer: Well, at North American Savings, we’ve never lost one cent of our depositors’ money — and we never will. Because, unlike other banks, at North American Savings, we don’t make risky loans. In fact, with our unnecessarily high credit requirements, like 90% cash down on home mortgages, the banking industry’s highest non-refundable loan application fees, and proof that applicants don’t need the money… we make virtualy no loans at all, rejecting 97% of loan applications.

Announcer: So, go ahead… start that business.

[ a banker places a “REJECTED” pin to a little girl’s dress ]

Announcer: But so long as you’re not looking for money to borrow, and simply want not to lose the mnoey you have, let us be your partner. When you need it, that money will be here. Safe and secure — every cent of it.

[ a banker leads a client into the bank’s safe: a closet stacked with mattresses. The banker takes the clients roll of bills and stuffs it under one of the mattresses. ] [ SUPER: “Deposits do not accumulate interest” ]

Announcer: At North American Savings, protecting what you have isn’t just a priority, it’s our only priority.

North American Savings. Not losing customers’ deposits since October 1987.
