Android - "And You" commercial (Also, "Be Together. Not the same.")

"A few years ago, we thought that phones and tablets and watches (and stuff that hasn't even been invented yet) would be way more interesting if everyone was invited to imagine, invent, make, or buy whatever they wanted. So we created Android, and put it out there for everyone. Since then, all kinds of people, companies big and small, folks on Kickstarter, kids in schools, and mad-smart developers have been innovating faster, together, than any one company ever could. Basically, we're throwing the world’s biggest… come as you are, everyone’s invited, don’t bother knocking, feel free to DJ, bring a friend or fifteen… party. Consider yourself invited."


"Inviting the new kid to your lunch table...opening yourself up to new ideas…having the courage to add your thing to the world. It’s “moments of And” like these that move everything forward... And the best part is...every time someone new joins in, things get more interesting, more unexpected, and more wonderful for all of us."


Thanks for the tip AdFreak!

Kevin Spacey Talent Scout E*Trade commercials


So. Perfect.

"ETFs, level 4 options, and municipal bonds? Congratulations, you're arrived. Like Phil's culinary collage, your investing empowers your individuality -- it's your version of Kobe beef next to Vermont apple pie next to Char Kuey Teow. Tomorrow night you're rolling over your old 401(k) then going out for molecular gastronomy. You've made it this far, so be on the lookout. Because once you've found Type E*, we'll find you."


"It's easy to spend the night dancing after spending the day strengthening your long term investing plan. As you dip and swirl, think of those sector funds giving you exposure to Industrials and Tech. You stick to the beat just like the dividend yield of that blue chipper you bought today. 3.21. 3.21.  Welcome home, Type E*."
