A Saturday night delight: Flashmob or Polished Ad on a Spanish Plaza, This Video Is a Feast

On the 130th anniversary of the founding of Banco Sabadell we wanted to pay homage to our city by means of the campaign “Som Sabadell” (We are Sabadell) . This is the flashmob that we arranged as a final culmination with the participation of 100 people from the Vallès Symphony Orchestra, the Lieder, Amics de l’Òpera and Coral Belles Arts choirs.

    This is lovely. But what a shame that such sublime music has to be associated with a Bank?

    This is wonderful – philipat, people like you add nothing to this world. Are you so dense that you don’t realize how thousands of small banks that have powered the Spanish economy for decades, through no fault of their own, are in deep trouble? Millions of Spaniards are out of work. The nation may have to withdraw from the Euro, which will bankrupt not only the banks but all those millions who have Euro-denominated mortgages and car loans.

    Here you have a small regional bank, likely to go under, but – like the orchestras in the concentration camps and the band on the deck of the Titanic, trying to bring some last bit of humanity and joy to those who are suffering – and you condemn them for sponsoring this?

    Shame, shame, shame!
