French bank Caisse d’Epargne in Auvergne-Limousin wanted to make a “bit of a buzz” in the social media in France on Friday. However, the bank ended up embarrassed after clients and followers complained.
It was all a bit of a balls up really, as they chose to post a photo of a squirrel, hanging upside down from a feeding stand by his testicles, as the hapless creature tries to get himself some nuts.
The bank shared the image with its 24,000 Facebook followers, with the caption: “Because accidents don’t just happen to others, insurance will also cover you for any temporary injuries”.
At first, apparently, followers thought that the bank’s Facebook page had been hacked, but once they realized that the bank had posted the image itself many complained, saying that the image was in very bad taste.
