Have you guys seen this commerical. It is worth watching. We need more commericals like this.

Wish I could say I liked that one, but I don't. The first time I saw it, I thought of L. Lohan, not sure of the spelling of her name. That commerical is too grown-up for babies. This one has good music and the looks on their faces is priceless!

I admit the eTrade ones aren't for everyone. A baby talking like Bruce Willis just tickles me, though. :-)

Good voice, but way too much grown-up talk. We treat our children like grown-ups when they are small and turn around and treat them like small babies, when they are 21 and older. When our children turn 21 and we put them outside the door and you don't hear crying on the other side, then you have done your job, but if you do hear crying, you've done something Wrong!
I've seen some commercials where the children are talking to the parents like the parents are morons. My mouth drops, like that would be the day mine talked to me like that. Same with the commericals that make women look stupid.

They could really make this commerical cute, if they tried.

I absolutely agree with you when such behavior occurs within stories -- comedy or drama. Sets a bad example for sure. But I think a commercial that talks about stuff kids aren't interested in (investments) will just go over their heads.

It's the absurd juxtaposition that makes them subversive and fun for me.

When I was in England, the only thing I watch on TV was their commericals. They were just so funny. Even my girls would just sit and laugh. I hate Wall Street so much, I even hate it when they talk about trading or say they are there to help you choose the right way to go! Ya like I would trust these people with my life.
