Snapchat Heralds The Future Of Snapcash With Old Timey Showbiz Celebration

“Introducing Snapcash!”

From the land of oddball commercials come some back-in-the-day showbiz performers to celebrate the introduction of Snapcash from Snapchat.

Described as “Deliberately Weird And Ostentatious” at Business Insider, it’s a bit of a nutty take on introducing a potentially game-changing cash transfer service that could also be used for payments.

Powered by Square, the service is serious. And perhaps we could take the ad more seriously if we bear in mind related retro developments such as the American Idol songbook and even the revival of burlesque. Either way, Snapcash is here!
