I saw an eTrade ad on TV today that did not have talking babies! Shocked Amazingly, it was talking about ....wait for it.... selling stocks!ShockedConfusedErmm

No talking babies, no pixilated cartoons, no talking lizard mascots, no annoying musical tag lines, no one yelling, no total non sequitors, just an ad for a method of buying into the stock market using their software and company. Basically, an offer to do what their company name implies that they are in business to do.

I nearly fell out of my chair in shock.Smile

Haven't seen this but HATED the talking babies. By far the worst big-budget ad campaign in the last 10 years.

Wow.  An ad describing the company and the products/services it offers...nothing more.  Some ad exec's head must've exploded somewhere in Commercial Land with the realization that yes, it could be done! LOL
Welcome to Commercial Land. This is a magical place where all women look up while eating, and it is perfectly acceptable to slurp the hell out of a Dannon yogurt cup.
