Ad Nausea: Marvel Visa Commercial

In the midst of the cinematic superhero boom, this ad sprang to my mind recently. This is a unique and funny spot for the Visa check card made around the early ’00’s. A lady in distress gets some assistance from a handful of Marvel superheroes!

 

NOTE: This was before the launch of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) or 20th Century Fox’s X-Men or Sony’s Spider-Man movie franchises, so take a good look: this is probably the only time you’ll be seeing Spidey, Storm and Wolverine standing alongside Captain America and Thor for a considerable while, and definitely the only time you’ll be seeing Wolverine wearing the yellow costume in live-action!
