WSJ Decision, Trust, Pay

Morgan Stanley to Buy E*Trade; so fresh

This ad’s text is triggering some people. They think it’s about the currently controversial presidential election.

In reality, it’s far too vague, and that’s almost certainly intentional. Likely, it’s even meant to take advantage of emotional people on the topic of the election, but they didn’t say that.

It then appeals to Trust and tries to fool you into thinking you haggled the price down a whopping ~90%.

But you better not think about it, because it’s a limited time offer; and you don’t want to miss out on that 90% discount, do you?

As of September, around 9% of people trust mass media according to polls. (lol)

At the time of writing, 9 people had said they liked this ad.
