Kevin Spacey, the star of House of Cards, is now the commercial spokesperson for E*Trade. E*Trade is generally known for using talking babies in their ads. The talking babies appeared in ads at six consecutive Super Bowls starting in 2008. Spacey plays a “talent scout” in this ad and he spots a potential E*Trade customer grabbing a plate at a buffet. Spacey compliments the man on his trading skills and culinary insights.
“Who would have thought three-cheese lasagna would go with chocolate cake and ceviche? The same guy who thought that small caps and bond funds would go with emerging markets. It’s a masterpiece,” said Spacey. Spacey handed the man a business card.
I’m not going to lie — I liked the talking babies better.
