What If I Told You... The Joker Was Supposed To Be Rich?

Disclaimer: If you have yet to catch Warner Bro’s $737.5 million Box Office Thriller, JOKER, this article contains spoilers. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so. 

Now that we are done with the necessary disclaimer, allow us to provide a new perspective of JOKER…

Poor Joker, Good For Box Office

Starred by Joaquin Phoenix, Joker is a psychological thriller that revolves around party clown, and aspiring stand-up comedian, Arthur Fleck in the year 1981.

In a city manifested with crime, poverty, and unemployment, Arthur Fleck (the Joker), found himself in a rather undesirable position of having to take care of his sickly mother, Penny, while juggling his job as a party clown. 

On top of that, Arthur was diagnosed with a medical condition that caused him to burst into uncontrollable laughter at the most inappropriate times. Those who’ve watched the movie will empathise with his financial condition, and how poverty, coupled with bad luck and society’s unrelenting judgment, led him to get fired from his job. 

Later on, when Joker uncovered the truth about Penny and his childhood, he was driven to a state of insanity, leading up to a chain of rampant murders, and a revolution that led him to be one of Batman’s greatest villains.  


We get it.

Casting Joker to be sad and poor is good for the box office. Jokers’ descent to madness is reasonable, and his appalling circumstance compels us to feel deeply for him. 

This may just be the reason why Joker is set to break Box Office records. With the film currently standing at an astonishing $737.5 million, sad, poor Joker is actually good money for the Box Office.

Another disclaimer: Some of the scenes and storyline below differs from the actual movie. This is because Seedly edited some of these graphics for this article. It is not a 100% representation of the movie.

Hence, you should still watch the movie.

You see, Joker has never been someone who is really good with his finances. 

A quick look at his suit will tell you so.

And there’s more to it.

“HOW CAN THIS BE ALLOWED??!”

You see, holding on to your first savings account is a “crime”. By not being on a bank account that gives you a higher interest rate can hurt you financially.

Worst case scenario, it drives you to insanity.

Should Joker have a bit more savings to get by, all the chaos could have been avoided. We are not saying that the old POSB Savings Account is not a good place to park your savings. But this case, he could have jumped on a higher interest account from the same bank, such as DBS Multiplier to enjoy the fullest benefit of interest rate return.

It all boils down to ONE SIMPLE DECISION.

Higher Interest Please!

Switching to a Savings Account with a higher interest rate can reduce the impact of inflation on our wallet. 

But we realised how PAINFUL a process it can be.
