CHICAGO, Nov. 29 (UPI) -- The Bank of America attempted to show its Chicago savvy with an ad featuring a picture of the city skyline -- the skyline as it looked some years ago.
The nighttime view shows such classics as the Tribune Tower, the Wrigley Building and the Sun-Times Building. The Sun-Times Building is now gone and the Trump International Hotel & Tower is going up where it once stood.
"We intend to have an impact on the Chicago banking landscape, but this was not what we had in mind," a Bank of America spokesman told the Chicago Tribune. "We'll fix the ad."
Bank of America recently bought the LaSalle Bank and ran the full-page ad to plug its combination of "local commitment" and "global capabilities."
Other Chicago newcomers have made similar mistakes. Macy's, which bought the legendary Chicago department store Marshall Field, mistakenly labeled Wabash Avenue a street and Randolph and Washington streets avenues on new signs in the store.
