The Sex Pistols, a band that wore the “punk” label like an Anarchy shirt in manager Malcolm McLaren’s Sex boutique, famously sung, “Your future dream is a shopping scheme.” Well, to quote another Pistols song, f*ck this and f*ck that, f*ck it all to the Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols artwork being used on Virgin Money’s credit cards.
Because bankers are the real punk rockers, you see.
Virgin Money said it was “time for consumers to put a little bit of rebellion in their pocket.” Michele Greene, the bank’s director of cards, said: “In launching these cards, we wanted to celebrate Virgin’s heritage…The Sex Pistols challenged convention and the established ways of thinking, just as we are doing today in our quest to shake up UK banking.” (Via)
That might as well read, “There is no future in England’s dreaming, but yours can be assured with a $ex Pistols credit card, which can pay for Dead Kennedys Life Insurance.”
The cards have an interest rate of 18.9 percent APR.
