C is for Charles Schwab Commercials

So you're telling me that I can save on my retirement and work on improving my 401k? And what kind of investments are going to boost my... wait a minute, you're a cartoon character?

Does anyone else see what I am seeing during commercical breaks? We have financial consultants giving us retirement advice about our future pathways into the latter years of life, using big words such as brokerage, client assets, and investment contributions? And they are cartoon characters? I am supposed to take them seriously, why?

Take a look at the latest commercial that is on the airwaves. He may be discussing some serious financial topics, but the guy is a CARTOON! He and Mighty Mouse are on the same level because of his two-dimensional design.

It's advertisements like this that make me wish I owned tiVo.

What do you think?
