Scooby-Doo will also feature in branch and online advertising, as well as social media to promote​ ​Halifax’s cashback extras campaign.

Russell Galley, ​m​anaging ​d​irector, Halifax said: “Scooby-Doo is the third iconic character to​ ​feature in our re-energised advertising campaign, dialling up our desire to stand apart from other banks and be on the side of our customers.

​"​Our TV ad featuring Top Cat last year generated our biggest ever social media engagement with more than four million views on Facebook and Twitter, so we wanted to follow up this success with another much-loved character.

“Just like the previous stars of our ads, Scooby and the ​g​ang help us demonstrate our commitment to helping customers to be better off, showing that whoever comes through our doors will be welcomed by our friendly, down-to-earth colleagues.”

Scooby-Doo is such an iconic character and universally loved – the perfect character to demonstrate how we reward customers who bank with us.”
