E-Trade is back at the 2013 Super Bowl with a new talking baby commercial, “Save It”, in which a baby contrasts the options of spending tax refunds on wild living or saving them online. We’re shown shot of this E*Trade baby in space, playing polo, yachting and sharing a spa with a panda. As exciting as these options may be, they don’t compare with the best alternative. A second commercial, “Runaway Baby”, featured on the E*Trade Youtube channel, has another baby in a carry bag talks about hidden fees as his mother looks through the kitchen drawers.
