Everyone has the same hairstyle, both men and women. If you refused to wear that hairstyle, you were probably fired.

It is also odd that they try to make the bank look like a suburban living room, especially compared to the leather, granite and steel look most banks have got today.

I got the living room feel of it also. The woman standing on the left and the woman on the stairs look like fembots, maybe jaime summers was tbe bank manager. I love the guy on the floor refusing to look at the camera. He just bought his jeans from County Seat a few stores down.
