HSBC‘s new one day mortgage ad is set to the song ‘What a Difference a Day Makes’, which is performed by the American singer Dinah Washington.

The song was originally written in Spanish way back in 1934, though this particular English version wasn’t released until 1959. In addition to reaching number 1 in the US Billboard R&B chart and number 8 in the Hot 100, this recording also earned Dinah Washington a Grammy for Best Rhythm and Blues Performance.

The commercial is set in a small seaside fishing town and shows a girl handing out house warming party invites, despite the house having not even been built yet.

As the day progresses we see a flat pack wooden house quickly being assembled, then just as darkness begins to fall, the girls home is completed and the party can begin.

Though not promising to build you a new house in 24 hours, HSBC do now offer a One Day Mortgage Approval Service.

The above full-length ‘Invitation’ video was added to HSBC’s UK YouTube channel on the 9th of October, 2015.

The lyrics sung in the advert are: ‘What a difference a day made, twenty-four little hours. Brought the sun and the flowers, where there used to be rain. My yesterday was blue dear, today I’m a part of you dear. My lonely nights are through dear, since you said you were mine.’
