E*TRADE Baby Returns to Spread the Truth on Investing
E*TRADE today unveiled a new 30-second "Talking Baby" advertisement which will run during the CBS® television network broadcast of Super Bowl XLVII. View the multimedia assets associated with this press release here: http://smp.businesswire.com/pages/etrade-unveils-super-bowl-xlvii-advertisement.
In the Super Bowl spot, called "Save It", the E*TRADE Baby demonstrates just how much money is at stake in hidden 401(k) account fees by playing out over-the-top spending sprees that could be paid for with the money spent on fees. In the end, the Baby offers a better idea, "come to E*TRADE, and Save It."
