Dh has asked me to post this

The Lloyds advert has come on, the one where the horse is running through all the scenes.

He usually loves it. Tonight he is pissed off. The scene where the man is proposing to his boyfriend has been cut out.

Why?!

Havent seen the ad but i notice adverts often have a longer and shorter version.
I imagine it's about cost.

Are you sure it's not just a shortened version and other things have been cut out too?

RoseValleyRambles Tue 11-Oct-16 19:49:28

It may just be a slightly different length of ad spot - often several different cuts are produced, and shorter versions run once the full 'film' has played out for a few weeks.

For a different time slot.

Soubriquet Tue 11-Oct-16 19:50:07

I said that, but he pointed out that they could have left something else out and not cut the only gay scene

I hate that horse , it's like the horse of death running through people's lives and cursing them . It's a horrible sinister advert. The couple have had a lucky escape.

I think ur DH should possibly get out more ;-)

Soubriquet Tue 11-Oct-16 19:52:53

Probably grin

mrsblackcat Tue 11-Oct-16 19:53:53

I love it. I've been known to shed a little tear smile

There are four versions - I'm not sure if they are all still running - each with a different scene removed. Then the full-length version.

Unfortunately I do think that one is the most noticeable, and it's the most memorable scene, but I think all four versions are shown. It's just so that they can save costs on paying for a shorter slot, but still appeal to the various segments.

Soubriquet Tue 11-Oct-16 19:56:28

I shall tell him that Anchor and hope he stops sulking

AmeliaJack Tue 11-Oct-16 19:57:36

Get him to tweet Lloyds and ask why. They'll reply.

I imagine it's about cost. Internally Lloyds are very big on diversity and LBGT issues.

Soubriquet Tue 11-Oct-16 19:58:19

We don't have Twitter shock

I don't understand it tbh, so never signed up to it.

FlyingElbows Tue 11-Oct-16 19:59:39

I've never seen that version. I love that advert, everything should have horses running in it.

Soubriquet Tue 11-Oct-16 19:59:40

Hahahahaha!!!!

<rolls on the floor clutching my sides>

He was hoping for more "it's ok. Don't let it worry you. It will be on again at some point" type posts gringringrin

He obviously hasn't seen AIBU

StarlingMurmuration Tue 11-Oct-16 19:59:44

I think that, unless they've got various versions with different bits cut out, they should have left the proposal scene.

It always gives me a bit of a fly in my eye, tbh.

mrsblackcat Tue 11-Oct-16 20:01:25

Flying

Totally smile

AmeliaJack Tue 11-Oct-16 20:04:55

OK, he can email them though. They won't mind.

Soubriquet Tue 11-Oct-16 20:05:00

here is the full advert if you want to see

Though now you've said death horse that's all I can see

mrsblackcat Tue 11-Oct-16 20:06:31

It is not a death horse! How very dare you grin wink

It is a beautiful noble steed!

Soubriquet Tue 11-Oct-16 20:09:01

He's big...and black!!

Perfect horse for a funeral carriage

Pardonwhat Tue 11-Oct-16 20:10:06

How can anyone not like the horse!? The lloyds tsb adverts make me cry. I'm sure I've read somewhere that they actually own a black horse.

Soubriquet Tue 11-Oct-16 20:11:44

They probably so own a horse. Which they rent out for funeral processions grin

I think your dp should register for MN and post this himself!
